Leon County Board of County Commissioners
CHSP Citizen Review Teams

The Community Human Services Partnership (CHSP) utilizes staff and community volunteers to implement a joint agency review process, resulting in joint funding recommendations for agencies applying for funding for specific human services programs providing direct client services to Leon County residents.

Citizens Review Teams (CRTs) are established to review agency applications, hear presentations, and make funding recommendations, which are forwarded to the Board of County Commissioners and the City Commission for consideration and approval.
Memorandum of Understanding between Leon County and the City of Tallahassee.
Decision Making Committee
There are 11 CRT teams, one for each of the following human services categories:
  1. Children's Services
  2. Community Support Services
  3. Services for Persons with Disabilities
  4. Basic Needs and Emergency Services
  5. Family Support Services
  6. Physical Health Services
  7. Senior Services
  8. Youth Recreation and Character Building Services
  9. Youth Education Services
  10. Promise Zone (City)

Citizen volunteers are assigned by staff to one of the eleven teams with consideration given to the volunteer's past and previous employment, professional and personal experience, interest, skill set, availability, and potential conflicts of interest.   A concerted effort is made to ensure that the teams represent a cross-section of the community.   The Board of County Commissioners then considers the ratification of the CRT appointments.
