2:15 PM *Aid to Agencies Mid-Year Update: Comitis Crisis Center



Purpose and Request:

recommended action

The purpose of this study session is for Comitis Crisis Center to provide a mid-year update regarding their 2024 Aid to Agencies award.



Background and Discussion:

The Arapahoe County Commissioners developed the Aid to Agencies program to financially support non-profit organizations in 2008, filling service gaps in the county through annual grants using general fund dollars. In 2021, the Board approved a revision to the Aid to Agencies program structure that designated annual funding to the county's ten “safety net” programs. The organization providing these programs receives annual Aid to Agencies funding without needing to re-apply, subject to annual appropriations.

As part of the programmatic change, safety net organizations are asked to provide a mid-year update presentation, which generally includes:

                     A brief program background

                     Key successes/accomplishments

                     Data of people served by the program

                     How the organizations used or plans to use the Aid to Agencies funding

                     Any anticipated challenges

At this study session, Comitis Crisis Center will provide a mid-year update and answer questions from the Board.


Fiscal Impact: None, these presentations are informal. The funds were allocated with the 2024 budget.


Alternatives: No Board action is not being requested.


Alignment with Strategic Plan:

                     Be fiscally sustainable

                     Provide essential and mandated service

                     Be community focused
