Teton County and the Town of Jackson have long demonstrated a commitment to funding Health and Human Services organizations. Many organizations have received funding annually, while funding to others has been less consistent. Over the last ten years, total contributions to Health and Human Services organizations by the County and Town have increased nearly 25%. During the last few years the Human Services agencies in Teton County have experienced deep budget cuts from the State of Wyoming. Despite making up some of the cuts through private fundraising and additional funding from the County and Town, Human Services organizations still face budget cuts. A number of initiatives have been implemented in response to the issue, including increases in private fundraising, development of a White Paper to describe the problem, and a commitment from the elected officials to elevate the problem. The elected officials are now seeking the development of a plan that will provide strategic direction for community planning and prioritization related to health and human services, and help inform and direct future funding decisions.
