Background/Explanation:

Social Action Grants are available to qualified non-profit social service organizations desiring to provide services to homeless and low-income residents of Pinellas County to address their health, economic and social well-being. Pinellas County Human Services administered a competitive, online application process for Social Action Funding through Neighborly Software. The grant solicitation was posted on April 1, 2022, and a standard application form was used to promote effective review and scoring. The County funding priorities for Social Action Grants are food/nutritional services, homeless prevention and supportive services, healthcare and human services for disadvantaged residents and supportive services for an aging population. Organizations were eligible to apply for funding between $10,000.00 and $150,000.00.

Fifty-Seven (57) applications were received, and sixteen (16) community agencies were recommended for funding through the Social Action Grant Program.  A diverse review committee of community partners scored the applications and developed funding recommendations for consideration and was approved by the Board on September 22, 2022.

Pinellas County Human Services is working with the agencies to develop performance outcomes and reporting guidelines.
