Contracted Human Services

The purpose of the Contracted Human Services (CHS) is to fund the services that are:

  • Critical to the well-being of the community.
  • Strategically effective to the well-being of the community. 

Each year, Sarasota County Government accepts applications from nonprofit agencies for the provision of human services needed by Sarasota County residents.  

Rating criteria - Application review process

The Human Services Advisory Council will review the program merits of the applications. Recognizing that county government will never be able to fund all human services needed by the county’s residents, prioritization of services is a necessary step in the process.
The advisory council will utilize Contracted Human Services funding to subsidize the services that are: identified as being most essential or valuable to the well-being of the community and prioritized as being most critical or strategically effective to the welfare of the community.
The members of the Human Service Advisory Council have identified a rating criteria that will be used to evaluate the requests for Contracted Human Services funding.  For more information on the Human Services Advisory Council, click on the link below:
