Linn County distributed more than $250,000 this week to local human service agencies that address important community needs, such as:
- Food insecurities
- Adult and child health/dental care
- Domestic violence
The funding comes from Linn County Community Services (LCCS), which is a Linn County department whose mission is to address local health and human service needs through direct services, community planning, and administration of local, state, and federal funds.
In every case, the services LCCS is funding cannot feasibly be provided by the County, yet the need exists for these services for Linn County residents. Contributing directly to the funded agencies is the most effective economic means of providing human services for Linn County.
