The financial picture of the Marion County Board of DD is complex. We are fortunate to receive Federal Funds (Medicaid), State Funds, and our local levy dollars. With all of those funding streams, there are many challenges. Funding is often changed midstream and partially dictated by decisions out of the agency’s control at the state and Federal levels.
Despite the internal challenges of managing all of this, the overall goal for MCBDD is to use our local funds to assist those we serve and also maintain our facilities (we have a Capital levy we use for that purpose and it is specifically earmarked for that need and cannot be used for services).
Here is an overview of our financial picture and how the money is broken down to support those in our community with developmental disabilities.
