Fulton County Commissioners Approve Contracts for Vital Community Services | Print |

 

Contracts awarded to 71 non-profits to assist seniors, youth, the disabled and homeless  

ATLANTA – By a 6 to 0 vote, Fulton County Commissioners today, March 15, 2017 approved $5.4 million in Contracts for Services to nonprofits through the Community Services Program. In total, contracts were awarded to 71 non-profit organizations, including 28 non-profits serving youth.

CSP funding supports the delivery of community-based services to Fulton County residents in the areas of Children and Youth Services; Services for People with Disabilities; Economic Stability/Poverty; Homelessness; and Senior Services.  

Agencies that received contract awards will provide performance data demonstrating how they have maximized investment of taxpayer dollars in service to Fulton County residents. Staff from the Department of Housing and Community Development will conduct site visits to monitor the contract compliance of operations, programming and services.

"We are proud to commit millions of dollars to these agencies that are dedicated to improving the quality of life for so many of our residents," said Fulton County Chairman John Eaves. "And taxpayers can be assured their money is well spent, as we plan to closely monitor these programs to ensure they're delivering great services to youth, seniors, the disabled and the homeless."  

 “CSP will allow us the opportunity to deliver high impact service to meet critical social service needs within Fulton County communities,” said Fulton County Manager Dick Anderson. “The approved contract proposals help us ensure that dollars are invested against performance metrics.”

“We are committed to connecting seniors, youth, and people with intellectual and developmental disabilities with services that will enable self-sufficiency, which means aging in place, avoiding institutionalization, reducing homelessness and providing young people in need with the tools necessary to redirect their lives and ensure their future success,” stated Fulton County Chief Operating Officer Todd Long.

“We are confident that a process has been established that requires accountability while also ensuring efficient and effective services to allow our most vulnerable populations to receive the care and community support they need,” added Department of Housing and Community Development Director Frankie Atwater.

The maximum contract value per agency and proposal is $100,000. The minimum contract value per agency and proposal is $25,000. The maximum amount of HCD-CSP funds allowed for administrative purposes is 5% of contract value, which is inclusive of direct and indirect charges for administration of the contract for services.

The CSP Evaluation Committee was composed of 33 evaluators, which included 12 internal County staff and 21 external subject matter experts.
