Sedgwick County Commissioners will consider renewing grants for the county Health Department and for its juvenile justices services at a meeting Wednesday.

The county is applying for $1.9 million from the Kansas Department of Health and Environment for services provided by the Sedgwick County Health Department. Without this funding, many programs would be drastically reduced, according to the county health department.

It also is seeking $3.2 million from the Juvenile Justice Authority. The county has received this grant before for juvenile case management, supervision programs, the intake and assessment center and other services.
