Explanation

BACKGROUND: Columbus Public Health has been awarded a grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services through the Ohio Department of Health. This ordinance is needed to accept and appropriate $125,000.00 in grant money to fund the Child Injury Prevention grant program, for the period January 1, 2019 through September 30, 2019.

This project will work with the Franklin County Suicide Coalition to develop a strategic plan to decrease youth suicides in Franklin County and will assist the coalition with the implementation of evidence-based strategies. The other component of this grant program is to promote the creation of policies for the Child Passenger Safety Toolkit, work with Franklin County agencies to implement the policies, and work more in depth with Franklin County Car Seat Fitting Stations to increase the community’s awareness and availability of locations the public can get their car seats checked by a certified Child Passenger Safety Technician.

This ordinance is submitted as an emergency to continue the support of all activities for the Child Injury Prevention grant program.

FISCAL IMPACT: The Child Injury Prevention grant program is entirely funded by the grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services through the Ohio Department of Health and does not generate revenue or require a city match.
