Explanation

BACKGROUND: Columbus Public Health has been awarded a grant from the Ohio Commission on Minority Health. This ordinance is needed to accept and appropriate $52,500.00 in grant monies to fund the Minority Health grant program for the period of July 1, 2018 through June 30, 2019.
The Minority Health grant program enables Columbus Public Health to work to eliminate differences in health status between racial and ethnic minority and non-minority populations by providing leadership and guidance on best ways to address racial and ethnic health disparity and specific health needs of racial and ethnic minority groups.
As a result of the Minority Health Grant funding in 2017 we served 656 organizations and provided services to 23,000 residents. This included: Cultural Connections- 6,766 interpretation and translation services provided, 124 reviews of cultural documents; Community Action- 31 community partnerships developed and implemented, 98 events sponsored by or participated in, and 32 articles shared with the community; Evaluating the Community- 596 surveys collected from community presentations, forums, and events including the Mexican Consulate, Cultural Humility Presentations, interpretation services trainings, Native American Indian Center of Central Ohio, Minority Health Advisory Committee.
This ordinance is submitted as an emergency so a delay in service does not occur since the grant starts July 1, 2018.

FISCAL IMPACT: The Minority Health grant program is partially funded by the Ohio Commission on Minority Health for $52,500.00 and requires at least a 20% City match in-kind.
