LPS annual budget is a declaration of the department’s priorities – a statement on how to allocate the financial resources that exist. There are several funding sources including operating budget and grant funding. The operating budget enables the day-to-day functioning of LPS by paying for recurring expenditures for programs and services, employee compensation, rents, utilities, supplies, insurance among other costs.
