The Children and Youth Commission receives up to four (4) percent of the gross receipts tax and administers funding to local Santa Fe nonprofits and Santa Fe Public Schools on a two-year funding cycle at approximately $1.2 million annually (funding amount varies due to GRT fluctuations). The purpose of the fund is to support local community programs that promote the healthy development of local children and youth, ages birth to twenty-one (21).


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 receives up to two (2) percent of the gross receipts tax and administers approximately $900,000 annually in funding to local adult serving Santa Fe nonprofits. The 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 cost-effectiveness, 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.


Human Services funding has 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 two years of the data project we have seen promising 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 a strong referral network system using Results Based Accountability and navigation based services, we can track client outcomes and continue making progress for the people being served.
