Consolidated Community Funding Pool - Goals & Policies


Establishing Goals, Policies, and Implementation Guidelines

From its inception, the Consolidated Community Funding Pool was more than just a new County funding mechanism; it was a partnership between interested citizens, funded agencies, and staff from County human service departments. In the summer of 1996, the Board appointed a Funding Policy Committee consisting of citizens from human service advisory boards and civic organizations, as well as representatives from non-profit agencies who would soon operate within the system they would create. The Committee was charged with identifying goals and policies for the new approach. Supported by staff, the Funding Policy Committee conducted benchmarking research and held workshops & forums to solicit broad input.

The work of the Funding Policy Committee is summarized by the following seven funding policy areas:

  1. Stable and Continuing Funding Support
  2. Effective and Efficient Program Management
  3. Citizen Involvement at all Levels
  4. Funding Allocation Based on Community Needs
  5. Public / Private Partnerships and Collaboration
  6. Fair and Equitable Application Procedures
  7. Effective Program Monitoring and Evaluation

The Funding Policy Committee also recommended that the Board establish a new citizen advisory body, the Community Funding Implementation Team (CFIT), to develop implementation guidelines such as detailed eligibility and evaluation criteria; application and selection guidelines; and reporting expectations for accountability in service delivery. The CFIT would also have the ongoing responsibility to set annual priorities for the Funding Pool.
