Explanation

BACKGROUND: This ordinance authorizes the Office of the Mayor to accept and appropriate funds from The Columbus Foundation for the Healthy Beginnings at Home program. The amount totals $37,802.00 and will be for the period of September 1, 2019 through September 30, 2020.

The Healthy Beginnings at Home program provides rental subsidies and housing stabilization services to Medicaid-eligible pregnant women with medical needs who are experiencing housing instability. As a part of this work, CelebrateOne and its partners are examining whether the intervention leads to improved birth outcomes, reduced risk for infant mortality and better health outcomes for women and their infants in Franklin County. A portion of these funds will be used to modify a contract amount, PO187534, by increasing the award amount with Nationwide Children’s Hospital in the amount of $16,956.00 to provide continued services for the reduction of infant mortality. Ordinance 1302-2019 was authorized by City Council on June 3, 2019.

Emergency Request: This ordinance is submitted as an emergency as to not delay program services and to allow the financial transactions to be posted to the City’s accounting system as soon as possible.

FISCAL IMPACT: The Columbus Foundation grant number is G401901, Private Grants Fund 2291. This program does not generate any revenue or require a City match.
