The Community Human Services Partnership (CHSP) is a joint City/County funded process that awards approximately $2 million in human service grants to local non-profit providers. Fiscal year 2019 is the first year of a two-year funding cycle for CHSP.
CHSP is currently undergoing a “needs assessment” to evaluate the program and recommend changes to funding categories and allocations to better serve the community. A final report will be presented to the Leon County and Tallahassee Commissions in October 2019.
