Background Discussion
  • On June 26, 2014, Meals on Wheels Plus of Manatee County sent a letter to the Board of County Commissioners requesting a $50,000 grant for FY 2014-2015 and continuing for 10 years for the purchase and maintenance of the Daybreak Adult Day Center.
  • On September 18, 2014, the Board of County Commissioners approved a grant of $50,000 for the Daybreak Adult Day Center for FY 2015.  As Meals on Wheels Plus will be incurring significant costs for the construction of the facilities it is expected that the Board will continue to fund this grant annually for the remainder of the ten year time frame.  This agreement is for one-year and will be reconsidered each year during the budget planning cycle to a maximum of 10 years.
  • Meals on Wheels Plus of Manatee County is seeking the funding to extend Adult Day Care services to an ever increasing number of seniors in the community.
