Social services are an essential part of local government, including child protective services, elder care services, nonprofit eligibility, and homeless shelters. Such services would remain the responsibility of the state and county.
Under Florida law, municipalities have no role in social services. The state works with the county for the delivery of these services. Eligibility for and delivery of these services remains at the state and county level.
Municipalities can add programs and services that focus on their local communities, such as seniors-based programs in parks in recreation.
