Funding Submissions, Directives & Bulletins
Annual Business Case Submissions
Each agency receiving funding from the City for shelters is required to complete the Annual Funding (Budget) Submission.
During the year, an agency may require and/or request an in-year adjustment (change) in their operating agreement related to their funding and/or the program delivery model/services for a number of reasons. In this instance, an agency will need to complete and submit a Business Case. The purpose of the Business Case is to provide a coordinated and consistent approach to the request for additional financial assistance. The Business Case process may be used to document a request for an increase in funding, a request for special financial assistance/consideration or one-time financial assistance.
Please call your Agency Review Officer for a copy of the Business Case Submission Guidebook and forms.
