Human Services Plan
Human Service programs are essential to the growth and vitality of our community. The City of Tucson strongly believes that investing in the prevention as well as the remediation of personal struggles, community members will have an opportunity to achieve well-being and lead productive and self-sufficient lives. The City allocates federal funds (CDBG, ESG) and general funds to nonprofit agencies through a Request for Proposal (RFP) process that supports nonprofit agencies that deliver a broad range of services including case management, financial assistance, food assistance, transportation help, pro-social activities, shelter, skill development/training, mentoring, respite, and tutoring.
The following Plan was approved by Mayor and Council at the April 5, 2016 Regular Session with the requirement that we retain the current funding for the first year of the Plan, and implement the new funding for the remainder of the Plan. This included postponing implementation of this plan until FY 2018.
