Explanation
BACKGROUND
This legislation authorizes the Director of Development to modify the contract with Rebuilding Together Central Ohio for services provided in the city’s Chores program. The modification shall add $100,000 to the contract and extend the contract through 2019 to provide services in 2019. The scope of services shall remain as originally contracted.

Original contract amount $100,000 Ord. 0444-2018
Modification No. 1 amount $100,000
Total contract amount $200,000

The modification is necessary to allow program services to continue without interruption.

The Chores Program provides minor home maintenance and repair services to low and low/moderate-income elderly and disabled homeowner-occupants in the City of Columbus. Examples of program services include replacement or repair of leaking faucets and commodes, faulty light fixtures and switches, loose or missing sections of porch decking or steps and installation of handrails, smoke detectors and deadbolt locks. Eligible homeowners receive home repair services (materials and labor) free of charge. Approximately 100 homeowners receive services through this program.

Emergency action is requested in order to continue to services without interruption.

FISCAL IMPACT
Funds for this expenditure are allocated from the 2019 Community Development Block Grant Fund and this ordinance is contingent upon passage of ordinance number 3275-2018. Because of federal grants based accounting requirements, any remaining amount of the original contract that was not expended for services in 2018 shall be cancelled after the final invoice for 2018 has been paid.
