How is the Division funded?

The Division is funded by a combination of funding sources. Currently, Environmental Health does not receive any money from the county general fund. Approximately 55 % of funds are collected from fees charged to regulated businesses and from permit services. Approximately 35% of funds come from public health realignment funds that come to local government from the State Vehicle License Fund. Approximately 10% of funds come from special grant projects.
