Background Discussion

(A workshop on Non Profit funding is scheduled for December 13, 2013.)

On September 19, 2013, the Board adopted the budget, which included nonprofit agencies funded through the children's services tax.

On September 25, 2013, The Family Partnership Center submitted a request for emergency funding from the children's services reserve to alleviate an unanticipated growth in the wait list for at-risk parenting services.  The Agency proposed a new program called Act Parenting to alleviate the wait list and address a need for an in-home and group parenting hybrid educational service provision.  (Agency request attached).

On October 16, 2013, the Children's Services Advisory Board reviewed and voted to recommend approval of this program's emergency funding request in the amount of $51,300 from children's services funding.

In accordance with Section 2-2-259 of the Manatee County Code of Ordinances, requests for funding after adoption of the County's budget must be brought forward to the Board of County Commissioners in a Public Hearing.

Consideration to provide additional monies is needed at this time to allocate recommended funding to The Family Partnership Center, Inc.

Following the Public Hearing on November 19, 2013, authorize Chairman to sign FY2014 Agreement for Non-Profit Agency Services with The Family Partnership Center, Inc., for the Act Parenting Program in the amount of $51,300.

Authorize the Chairman to adopt Budget Amendment B-14-021.
