Children and Youth Fund
Resolution No. 16-26 is for the purpose of amending the Baltimore City Charter to establish a continuing, non-lapsing Children and Youth Fund to be used exclusively to provide supplemental funding to broadly defined services for children and youth. The Fund may not be used to substitute or replace funding for children and youth programs and services that are provided for in the FY17 ordinance of estimates. A mandatory amount of $0.03 of every $100 of assessed value of real property in the City must be appropriated to this Fund annually. This allocation is permanent and not subject to discretion in the budget process, other fiscal priorities or constraints imposed by revenue limitations. The Resolution authorizes the Mayor and City Council, by Ordinance, to provide for the oversight, governance, and administration of the Fund.
