Explanation

BACKGROUND: Columbus Public Health was awarded $110,000.00 in grant monies, via Ordinance 1988-2017, from the Ohio Department of Health, originating from the Centers for Disease Control for the Tobacco Use Prevention and Cessation Grant Program. This ordinance is contingent on the passage of Ordinance 1988-2017 and is needed to authorize a contract with CompDrug, Incorporated, Youth to Youth Program (Y2Y) for $60,000.00 for the time period July 1, 2017 through June 30, 2018.

The purpose of the contract is to fulfill deliverables for the youth objectives related to tobacco prevention and cessation. This contract is necessary, per the requirements of the Ohio Department of Health, Tobacco Prevention and Cessation Proposal.

Tobacco use is a contributing factor in four out of the five leading causes of death in the Linden, South Side and Westside neighborhoods. More specifically, cancer is the leading cause of death in the Linden, and Westside priority communities, while heart disease is the leading cause of death in the South Side communities (Ohio Department of Health, Vital Statistics, 2010-2014).
Emergency action is requested so that key program deliverables can be initiated with a grant start date of July 1, 2017.

FISCAL IMPACT: The Tobacco Use Prevention and Cessation Grant Program budget provides $60,000.00 for a contract with CompDrug, Incorporated (Y2Y). This ordinance is contingent on the passage of Ordinance 1988-2017.
