Changes to Community Services Program Funding

Board of Supervisors

Meeting Date: 3/19/2013


The County of Marin has a district-based Community Services Program that provides small funding to support various community services needs throughout the year. Generally speaking the funds are used for small, one-time service requests and are typically allocated to non-profit service providers or other governmental entities. To respond to our recent budget challenges, the program was reduced from $550,000 annually to $350,000 (36% reduction) in FY 2010-11. Based upon feedback from a recent civil grand jury report, the Board will consider changes to the program desiged to improve transparency, improve cost-effectiveness, and clarify program requirements while maintaining many of the benefits of the program.
