Explanation

BACKGROUND

The purpose of this ordinance is to authorize Columbus City Council to enter into a grant agreement with the Clintonville-Beechwold Community Resource Center (CRC) to provide necessary supplies to older adults in anticipation of current and additional coronavirus emergency measures.

The coronavirus outbreak is disproportionately affecting older residents. Restrictions have been placed on mass gatherings and traditional meeting places, such as Columbus libraries and community centers, have been temporarily closed. There is now additional need to get critical supplies to older residents in need. This funding will assist CRC in delivering supplies to residents, such as groceries, water, pet supplies, and sanitary products. The funding will also provide volunteers with protective gloves and mileage reimbursement, as well as setting up a phone line for volunteers to speak to aging residents feeling isolated.

The funding will be able to provide services for up to 1000 older residents in need. Columbus City Council has been an advocate for the needs of aging residents in our communities, and is supporting this project with $12,000.00 in funding from the Neighborhood Initiative subfund.


EMERGENCY DESIGNATION: Emergency action is requested in order to immediately provide CRC with the support necessary to begin providing support to residents in need.


FISCAL IMPACT: Total appropriation is $12,000.00 and is available in the 2020 budget within the Neighborhood Initiative subfund, Fund 1000-100018.
