Explanation

BACKGROUND: Columbus Public Health has been awarded a grant from the United Health Foundation to fund the CelebrateOne Community Connector Corps Project. This project helps support a citywide resident engagement program to connect pregnant women to medical and social supports in their neighborhood. The grant funds awarded provide for a contract with Young Men’s Christian Association (YMCA) of Central Ohio, a neighborhood not-for-profit community organization, to meet grant deliverables in an amount not to exceed $103,833.36.

This ordinance authorizes and directs the Board of Health to enter this contract for a total amount not to exceed $103,833.36 for a time period of February 1, 2017 through December 31, 2017. Formal bids were not solicited due to the knowledge and expertise of this neighborhood community organization and in accordance with the non-profit service provisions found in Chapter 329 of the Columbus City Code. Young Men's Christian Association (YMCA) of Central Ohio's Contract Compliance Number is 31-4379594.

Franklin County had 149 infant deaths (rate being 8.5 deaths per 1,000 live births) from January through November 2016. 24 of them were sleep-related infant deaths (16%).

Emergency action is requested in order to avoid any delays in providing program services to meet grant deliverables.
