Cincy Council approves human services funding changes

The full Cincinnati Council is endorsing a proposal to double the amount of money the city provides for human services funding.  But it will also change the priorities for how those dollars are spent.  

Right now 54 programs share the city's $1.5 million.  It will likely double to $3 million for the next fiscal year.

The changes would begin with the new fiscal year on July 1st.

Christie Bryant is the chairwomen of the group.

“After careful consideration of impact, alignment and accountability, we recommend funding 56 programs,” Bryant said.  “Two programs unfortunately are not recommended for funding.  Because of the short notice to these programs, we do recommend providing them with one-month transition funds of $1,000 each.”
