HUMAN SERVICES FUNDING (AGES 18+)

Mission Statement: To build and strengthen community capacity to address the most critical

community health and wellness needs and improve outcomes for adults and families throughout Santa

Fe.

The Human Services Committee was formed by Resolution in 1987 and is charged by the City of

Santa Fe Ordinance (2016) with advising and recommending health and human service policies,

assessing and advocating for human service needs, coordinating resources to maximize costeffectiveness,

evaluating local human service programs, providing technical assistance to

programs, and making funding recommendations to the City Council to support nonprofit

organizations that provide and maintain a safety net of services to meet the essential health and

human service needs of the adult residents of Santa Fe.

Award Information:

Funding for the Human Services Committee grants comes from a minimum of 2% of the City’s

share of the state gross receipts tax at approximately $850,000.00. Funding award amounts for the

2019-2021 grant year will be capped at $150,000 per year or $300,000 for the total over two years.

Contract terms are for two years based on a review of the performance in the first year by the

Committee, the annual needs assessment findings, and site visits.

Human Services Strategies and Tiered Service Delivery:

Over the past 2 years grantees of Human Services funding have delivered an array of services

and programs including but not limited to behavioral health interventions, food distribution,

citizenship classes, trauma intervention and employment programming. At the heart of these

services is provision of safety net services and navigation to other needed services. When people

get the help they need, we expect that we will see improved health outcomes. “Navigators”—or

the people helping individuals through the system—are key to success. Over the last 2 years of

the data project we have seen initial results of the work of the safety net and the navigators

working within it: increases in permanently housing the homeless, reduction of bed nights for

homeless women and children, chronically ill patients increasing participation in physical

activity, and a reduction of symptoms associated with PTSD and depression, for example. In

joining in a strong referral network system using RBA and navigation based services, we can

track client outcomes and continue making progress for the people being served.

For the FY19-21 grant cycle the Human Services Committee in collaboration with the City of

Santa Fe’s Community Services Department and Santa Fe County’s Community Services

Department has created a two-tiered strategy for turning the curve on the Human Services

Committee funding goal areas.
