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.
  • The $50,000 for the FY2016 allocation is budgeted.
  • As Meals on Wheels Plus will be incurring significant costs for the construction of the facilities, it is anticipated that the Board will continue to fund this grant annually for the remainder of the ten-year time frame pending the approval of funding each year during the budget planning cycle.
  • 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.
