Explanation

BACKGROUND: This ordinance appropriates monies within the Community Development Block Grant Fund (CDBG) to various departments and offices of the government of the City of Columbus for the twelve months ending December 31, 2019.

This legislation represents appropriation for the CDBG portion of the 2019 Action Plan, per Ordinance 2776-2018.
