    File: El Pueblo Clinic NurseThe Pima County Board of Supervisors on June 20 approved more than $4,371,036 in Outside Agency funding for next year, intended to complement existing County services and help selected agencies carry out their missions in the community.

    That amount includes $2,176,400 for the Department of Community Development and Neighborhood Conservation’s Outside Agency (OA) Program which targets underserved and economically disadvantaged populations and communities through non-profit organizations recommended by Pima County's Outside Agency Citizen Review Committee. The committee meets several times throughout the year to review the progress programs made and discuss issues that the agencies encountered, including those related to the contractual process, contractual requirements, outcomes and outputs and the organizational capacity of outside agencies to deliver quality services. Programs were funded in five service categories, with the amount of funding for each service category based upon the Committee’s determination of community needs.

    The Committee’s funding priorities for fiscal year 2017/2018 included: Community Services, Emergency Food & Clothing, Senior Support, Support Services/Shelter/Domestic Violence and Youth and Young Adult.

    Funding by category:
    • Senior Support Services - $194,000
    • Community Services - $205,000
    • Support Services, Shelter and Domestic Violence - $487,900
    • Youth, Young Adult and Family Support - $550,500
    • Emergency Food and Clothing - $739,000
    Overall, the CDNC Outside Agency Program received a small increase in funding over last year's total of $2,114,400. 

    “We look forward to working with the local agencies that provide critical human services to Pima County residents in need,” said Daniel Tylutki, Senior Program Manager. “The Outside Agency Program makes people's lives better. Last year, our non-profit partners helped more than 137,000 people with everything from food, clothing and shelter to reading programs to transportation help, even legal representation in landlord-tenant disputes."

    In addition to the programs recommended by the committee, the Supervisors approved $1,336,386 in outside agency funding for General Services programs and an additional $858,250 for economic development and tourism investments. The top grants in those areas went toward vocational education and skills development training at Job Path and regional planning efforts at the Pima Association of Governments which received $500,000 and $298,000 respectively.
