Explanation

 

BACKGROUND:  Columbus Public Health (CPH) has been awarded a grant from Communicate Health to implement the Move Your Way community pilot program.  This ordinance is needed to accept and appropriate $34,400.00 in grant monies to fund the Move Your Way grant program for the period of December 1, 2019 through September 30, 2020.

 

In 2018, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP) created the Move Your Way campaign to promote the second edition of the Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans.  ODPHP is developing an implementation strategy and engaging with select communities to replicate the pilot program prioritizing physical activity relating to youth sports and maternal health.  CPH will serve as the lead agency in our community to implement the pilot program in coordination with Communicate Health.

 

This ordinance is submitted as an emergency so a delay in service does not occur since the grant begins December 1, 2019.

 

FISCAL IMPACT:  The Move Your Way grant program is fully funded ($34,400.00) by Communicate Health and does not require a City match.
