Summit DD’s operating levy makes up more than 80% of the Agency’s revenue. That levy is set to expire on December 31, 2024. Summit DD will be putting forth a replacement levy, Issue 17, on the November 7, 2023 ballot. This replacement levy will fund services and supports from 2025–2030 and will cost homeowners $158 a year per $100,000 of appraised value.
Summit DD has not experienced an increase in revenue since 2007, and in that time has increased the number of children and adults served by 30%!

This funding will allow Summit DD to support children and adults currently receiving services, along with the expected growth over the next six years. It’s important to note that the November 7 election will lock in home values at CURRENT rates, not the increased values that Summit County residents recently received letters about that go into effect in 2024.
