Origin

(May 8, 2013) Report from the Executive Director, Social Development, Finance and Administration

Summary

This report provides recommendations for Community Service Partnerships program grants (CSP), which provides ongoing support to community-based organizations that advance Council's strategic goals and priorities by working to improve social outcomes for vulnerable, marginalized and high-risk communities.  

 

For 2013, 213 eligible organizations requested a total of $15,919,146.86 to support the operation of community programs. These requests include a total of $2,530,601.83 for new or increased support from 87 organizations for 156 programs.

 

This report recommends the allocation of $14,334,485.00 to 213 organizations supporting 500 programs. This represents an increase to last year's allocation due to additional funding approved by Council in the 2013 budget process. This funding was approved in recognition of cost of living pressures on community based service delivery agencies, therefore there is no service level adjustment associated with the increase.

 

Of these recommended funds, $470,880.00 will be used to support new or enhanced programming in 30 programs, and the remainder will be used to maintain existing programs at 2012 service levels.

 

An additional $15,000.00 of the approved funding has been held to administer claims by eligible seniors through the consolidated snow-shovelling program. A total of $31,565.00 of the approved funding of the CSP 2013 Operating Budget has been held for appeals of the recommendations for new and increased funding.
