Human Services Consolidated Funding

Partnering with area non-profits to enhance City human service delivery for a great impact.

Performance Data for FY2022


Since 1979, the City of San Antonio has invested in human and workforce development services as a way to maximize our ability to impact human and economic development results in the community. The Department of Human Services (DHS) utilizes a Consolidated Funding Process.

The Consolidated Funding Process coordinates funding sources and investment strategies for:

  • City General Fund
  • Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG)
  • Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA)
  • Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)

It also streamlines the application process for eligible agencies (public, non-profit, charitable or faith-based). The funding supports four strategic long-term results and 15 associated investment priorities relating to children and youth success, familiy stability and financial security, older adult health and independence, and homeless prevention and intervention services.

The Consolidated Funding Process occurs every two years. The most recent Request for Proposals was issued in April 2021 and awarded contracts for FY2022 with a one year renewal option. In FY2022, 79 programs receiving a total of $21,437,577 are targeted to serve a total of 45,974 participants across the four long-term results.

DHS Long Term Results

The Consolidated Funding Process supports the Human Services Long Term Results. These results were developed using a Results Based Accountability (RBA)™ strategic framework to determine the community-wide impact DHS strives to achieve. By determining these four results, DHS is better positioned to recruit community partners who will contribute to our work to improve the lives of children, youth, families, individuals and older adults.
