of Funding on County’s Quality of Life

Johnson County, Iowa – On Wednesday, June 18, 2014, the Johnson County Board of Supervisors will host the event “Enhancing Quality of Life in Johnson County: A Celebration of Community Partners,” at the Johnson County Health and Human Services Building, 855 South Dubuque Street, Iowa City, in second floor conference room 203. A reception featuring local foods prepared by Shelter House’s Culinary Starts program begins at 4:30 pm; a brief program will start at 5:00 pm.

The event is an opportunity for the Johnson County Board of Supervisors to recognize and thank community organizations that receive county funds. Those organizations’ staff, volunteers, boards of directors and individuals who have benefited from the programs are invited to attend. This event coincides with a regular Board of Supervisors meeting and, as such, the public is also welcome.

For fiscal year 2015, the Johnson County Board of Supervisors allocated more than $2 million through various grant and fund allocation processes to more than three dozen community partners, including social services organizations, libraries, and economic development groups. In addition, in fiscal year 2014, the County allocated a total of $21,885 of emergency or innovative flexible funding to seven organizations.

Unlike many grant programs, county funding can be used by organizations for critical operating expenses, helping build financial stability. In addition, county funds can be used to leverage additional money from federal, state or private resources.
