Funding

The Erie County Health Department operates from three separate levies, a .2, .3, and .5 mill levy. These levies account for just 28.5% of our annual budget. Conversely, a full 71.5% comes from outside funding through grants and other sources. As we continue to use financial guideposts to plan our service expansions, our county residents can expect to see this trend of decreased reliance on levy funding continue into the future. We are proud of this conservative management and our ongoing ability to provide service excellence in these tough times.
