Explanation
BACKGROUND: This legislation authorizes the Director of the Department of Development to enter into a grant agreement with Community Mediation Services for the Homeless Prevention Program. The total amount of the grant agreement is $60,000.00.

The legislation targets social service programs that fall into one or more of the City’s three priority areas including emergency and basic needs, employment and self-sufficiency, and social success for our residents and neighborhoods.

Funding for Community Mediation Services’ (CMS) Homeless Prevention Program will assist individuals and families who are currently homeless or at imminent risk of becoming homeless in order to help them obtain or maintain stable housing for the long term. Tenants targeted by this program are those that have already received a 3 Day Notice to vacate their rental housing from their landlord or an eviction summons from the Franklin County Municipal Court. The grant amount is $60,000.00

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 ($10,000.00) and Neighborhood Initiatives Fund ($50,000.00).
