Explanation

 

BACKGROUND:  Columbus Public Health has been awarded a grant from the Ohio Department of Health to update content for the Growing Healthy Kids Program, formerly known as Healthy Children, Healthy Weights, for continued use in the Ohio Healthy Programs designation.  This ordinance is needed to accept and appropriate $92,000.00 in grant monies to fund the Ohio Healthy Program Translations Updates grant program for the period of January 1, 2020 through September 29, 2020.

 

Columbus Public Health (CPH) originated the Growing Health Kids curriculum which the Ohio Healthy Program is built upon, and therefore, CPH holds the implicit license.

 

This is the third round of funding granted by ODH to CPH for this program.  The first round of funding was used to contract with a production company to produce the online content for the program.  The second round of funding was used to pilot, train, and implement the online program.  This third round of funding will be used for content and material updates, primarily Spanish translation and recording of current online content and curricula. 

 

This ordinance is submitted as an emergency so a delay in service does not occur since the grant begins January 1, 2020.

 

FISCAL IMPACT:  The Ohio Healthy Program Conversion to Online grant program is fully funded ($92,000.00) by the Ohio Department of Health and does not require a City match.
