Public Policy is a significant catalyst for change. It directs funding toward important community health and human service needs that compliment the ongoing fundraising and investment efforts of United Way of Manatee County. A committee of United Way of Manatee County volunteers and staff develop an annual public policy/legislative agenda to provide guidance on a variety of local, state and federal policy issues that sustain the work for our community impact. We will provide information to legislators and to the public in an effort to increase understanding and awareness of the impact of policy and budget decisions on health and human services in our community.
