The City of Tallahassee and Leon County formed the Community Human Service Partnership (CHSP). Its distinctive process, the partnership between two local governments, earned a “Best Practice” award from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).  Moreover, the City of Cambridge Massachusetts included the CHSP model while conducting its research of best practice models in grant administration,

The goal of the CHSP process since its infancy has been to streamline the local grant process for applicant agencies by creating a concerted, community-driven, needs-based approach to solving the ever-growing and changing human service needs in Tallahassee/Leon County. Before the development of the CHSP funding distribution process, both partners conducted separate grant review processes; consequently, local human service providers had to participate in two different processes. This initiative requires greater coordination and cooperation between funding sources and among agencies, affords easier recognition of duplication and gaps in service delivery, and provides the ability to target funds accordingly.
