Explanation

BACKGROUND: This legislation authorizes the Director of the Department of Development to enter into grant agreements with various social service agencies throughout Central Ohio for the provision of services for a twelve-month period. The total amount of these grants is $3,367,236.00.

This legislation represents various programs funded following the Emergency Human Services (EHS) application process as well as the Department of Developmentā€™s application and evaluation process for General Fund assistance. The legislation targets social service agencies that will provide help to families and households through programs that include, but are not limited to: day care, substance abuse prevention programs, refugee and resettlement programs, senior care, mediation services, services for the disabled, material assistance and food programs, workforce development, youth programs and other services by assisting with the operating needs of the agency. In addition, the city supports programs and activities so that the greater population is assured access to other community assistance. This funding will allow the process to continue much needed services.

Emergency action is necessary to avoid causing interruptions in the delivery of program services.

FISCAL IMPACT: Funding for these expenditures is allocated from the Emergency Human Services Fund ($1,114,160) and the General Fund ($2,223,076).
