AUTHORIZING THE ALLOCATION OF THE JACK HOPKINS SOCIAL SERVICES PROGRAM FUNDS FOR THE YEAR 2013 AND OTHER RELATED MATTERS

This resolution brings forward the recommendations of the Jack Hopkins Social Services Funding Program Committee. The principal task of the Committee is to recommend funding for local social services agencies which offer proposals consistent with program criteria. Over the last 20 years (1993 – 2012), the City expended approximately $2.45 million dollars to local social services programs. In 2012, the City decided to increase the annual amount of funds for this program from $220,000 to $250,000 and target the additional $30,000 toward encouraging collaboration among local social services agencies. In 2013, the program allocation was increased to $257,500 to keep up with inflation. The resolution allocates the social services funds to 24 agency programs (including two collaborative projects), approves the funding agreements with these agencies, accepts the report of the Committee, authorizes the chair of the Committee to resolve any questions regarding the interpretation of the agreements, and also authorizes the chair of that year’s Committee to appoint the two non-Council member appointees to this seven member Commitee
