The executive board of the Washtenaw Urban County unanimously gave approval to a coordinated model for funding human services, collaborating with the United Way of Washtenaw, the Ann Arbor Area Community Foundation, the city of Ann Arbor and Washtenaw County. Together, these entities provide about $5 million annually for local human services nonprofits. The two-year pilot project will be administered by the county/city of Ann Arbor office of community development. The governing bodies for all other entities involved have already voted to approve the project, which will begin with the fiscal year starting July 1, 2011.
This brief was filed from the Urban County meeting at the Washtenaw County Learning Resource Center on Washtenaw Avenue. A more detailed report will follow: [link]
