Action Requested
  • Authorization for the Chairman to execute Amendment #1 of the HCE-16/17-MAN agreement with the Senior Connection Center, Inc., for the Home Care for the Elderly Program, transferring $4,500 of funds from the Subsidy category to the Case Management category and adopting a new Budget Summary reflecting this change.
  • Adoption of Budget Resolution B-17-068 amending the annual budget for Manatee County Florida Fiscal Year 16/17.

Enabling/Regulating Authority
Florida Statutes Chapter 125

Background Discussion
  • Amendment #1 allows for the transfer of $4,500 in funding form the Subsidy category into the Case Management category due to the initial funding allotment for the cost of Case Management being underestimated by the state.
  • Amendment #1 also adopts Budget Resolution B-17-068 showing a change in the annual budget for Manatee County.  No additional county match is required for this program.
  • Home Care for the Elderly grant funds are provided by the state through the Senor Connection Center, Inc., to provide Case Management, Basic, and Special Subsidy services to persons sixty years of age or older to prevent or delay premature institutional placement.
  • The HCE program encourages the provision of care for the elderly in family type living arrangements in private homes as an alternative to nursing home or other institutional care settings.
