Effective July 1 2004, Florida Parishes Human Services Authority (FPHSA) became a local governance entity. FPHSA was created to pool funding dollars in the areas of addictive disorders, developmental disabilities, and mental health services and to bring spending and operational decisions down to the local level. The geographical area served by FPHSA includes the following five parishes: Livingston, St. Helena, St. Tammany, Tangipahoa, and Washington. The Authority is governed by a Board of Directors composed of nine members, representing the five-parish area. Membership on the FPHSA Board reflects not only a geographical balance, but a balance of perspectives among providers, consumers, and advocates, as well as a balance among the three disabilities served. Under the Authority, it is a goal to avoid duplication, to streamline service delivery, and to improve the quality of care and service delivery to the consumers who are served. FPHSA is funded through the Legislature and receives both State General Funds and Federal Block Grant Funds for operations.
