The Human Services Advisory Board (HSAB) is charged with reviewing funding requests from non-profit, human service organizations. Each year, the HSAB meets in February to open the funding cycle and again in May to discuss and review all funding applications and finalize its funding recommendations to the Board of County Commissioners.
The HSAB prioritizes funding for organizations that (1) use HSAB funds to leverage outside funding; (2) do not duplicate existing services; (3) demonstrate need tor services; and (4) demonstrate sound financial management.
The Human Services Advisory Board places applicant organizations into one of three categories, and uses weighted percentages assigned to each category as a guideline to assist in making its funding recommendations:
As of FY12, the application of these weighted percentages was suspended for two years, per HSAB Working Group recommendations.
