Explanation
BACKGROUND: The Office of the Mayor has been awarded funds from CelebrateOne Community Fund at The Columbus Foundation. This ordinance is needed to accept and appropriate $27,824.91 in private grant money to support the Teen Reproduction Health Education and the Healthy Beginnings at Home programs for the time period of July 1, 2020 - December 30, 2021.

In May 2019, CelebrateOne signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Columbus City Schools to ensure that every middle school student would have access to comprehensive, medically accurate reproductive sex education. Nationwide Children’s Hospital manages the program and identified a need for a third party evaluation.

The Healthy Beginnings at Home program will be replacing outdated computer technology and receiving limited technical support to facilitate remote work. Additionally, funds from this transfer will be used to hire a research and evaluation consultant. Both expenditures are necessary to successfully close-out the pilot project and prepare for the next phase of work.

Emergency Request: This ordinance is submitted as an emergency so as to allow the financial transaction to be posted in the City's accounting system as soon as possible to meet the grant deliverables. Up to date financial posting promotes accurate accounting and financial management.

FISCAL IMPACT: The program activity is funded in part by the CelebrateOne Fund at The Columbus Foundation and does not generate revenue nor require a City match. Grant G401901
