Friendship Centers of Emmet County may lose funds from senior millage


The Friendship Centers of Emmet County Council on Aging announced earlier this week it's centers have fully reopened for meals and senior services.

EMMET COUNTY — In August, voters once again approved a county millage to provide funding for senior services. The millage was renewed at the same rate of .50 mills and will be levied over four years. This year, the allocation of funds may look a little different and could change some of the services available.

The funding from this millage has primarily gone to friendship centers in past years. According to Denneen Smith, executive director of the Friendship Centers of Emmet County, the organization has received 85 to 90 percent of the funding for the past 30 years. The millage makes up about 60 percent of its operating budget. 

The Friendship Centers of Emmet County received so much of the funding because the non-profit also operates as the county’s Council on Aging. With the organization taking on this role, the county does not need to have a government funded committee on aging.
