DATA: Travis County spent over $19.5 million on social services in 2018


Travis County Commissioners Court, through its Health and Human Services Department, invested more than $19.5 million in social service programs in fiscal year 2018.

“We’ve carried forward this same $19 million [plus]over the past 5 years,” said Sherri Fleming, county executive of health and human services.

Fleming and three members of her staff presented the annual update to commissioners Jan. 22.

The chart below shows how the county divided the $19,561,075 on social service programs last year. Public health and behavioral health accounted for 54 percent of total expenditures. The amount does not include grant-funded initiatives, Fleming said.

The following charts illustrate client demographics for over 73,000 individuals served, according to county staff. Not all programs collect demographic data, Fleming said.
