Background Discussion

Florida Statute 154 indicates that public health needs of counties may be provided for through contractual arrangement between the County and the State of Florida Department of Health (DOH).

Manatee County annually enters into such a contractual arrangement with DOH for public health services through DOH-Manatee. The form of the attached contract, from the State of Florida Department of Health, has been utilized over many years for these purposes.

On September 17, 2019, as part of the County's overall budget, the Board approved FY 2019-2020 funding in the amount of $929,962 for the DOH-Manatee.

The attached contract specifies amounts and sources of funds to be provided, along with administrative and programmatic responsibilities of the DOH-Manatee.
