St. Charles County’s charitable funds allocations decrease

The amount of money available for helping the homeless and those needing emergency assistance from St. Charles County government is down for 2019.

The St. Charles County Council approved allocating $215,000 in homeless funds and $40,000 in indigent funds to a group of nonprofit agencies that provide those services. The council approved those allocations at its Jan. 7 meeting.

The amount of homeless funds allocated is down from $240,000 allocated in 2018. The amount of indigent funds allocated remained at $40,000.

The council acts on recommendations by the county Community Assistance Board, a nine-member board appointed by the county executive that reviews applications for funding submitted by nonprofit agencies.

The major source of homeless and indigent care funding comes from a $3 user fee collected on all instruments recorded by the county’s Recorder of Deeds and other fees required by law.

Allocations for this year include:

• $10,700 for Preferred Family Health Care

• $12,100 for Connections to Success

• $16,900 for the Crisis Nursery

• $16,100 for Habitat for Humanity

• $29,900 for LINC

• $10,300 for NECAC

• $16,800 for Our Lady’s Inn

• $52,800 for Sts. Joachim & Ann Care Center

• $17,400 for the Salvation Army

• $10,100 for Turning Point Domestic Violence

• $21,900 for Youth In Need

• $3,000 in indigent funding for Crisis Nursery

• $3,400 in indigent funding for LINC

• $3,000 in indigent funding for NECAC

• $3,700 in indigent funding for Our Lady’s Inn

• $4,100 in indigent funding for Sts. Joachim & Ann Care Service

• $6,100 in indigent funding for Tri-County Probation and Parole

• $16,700 in indigent funding for Volunteers in Medicine.

The Community Assistance Board also recommended that $3,500 in Project Care funds and $35,000 in Community Development Block grant funding be awarded to Sts. Joachim & Ann Care Service. Additionally, they recommended that NECAC receive $15,000 in Community Development Block Grant funding.
