Explanation

BACKGROUND: Columbus Public Health has been awarded a grant from the Ohio Department of Health originating from the Centers for Disease Control. This ordinance is needed to accept and appropriate $674,059.00 in grant monies to fund the Coronavirus Response Supplemental Grant Program for the period of March 1, 2020 through December 30, 2020.

On March 6, 2020 the President signed into law the Coronavirus Preparedness and Response Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2020 (P.L. 116-123) (Coronavirus Supplemental). This act provides funding to prevent, prepare for, and respond to Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has activated its Cooperative Agreement for Emergency Response: Public Health Crisis Response to provide funding to state, territorial, and tribal health departments to carry out various COVID-19 activities. As the State of Ohio and its Local Health Districts prepare and respond to the COVID-19 incident, funding from this cooperative agreement will be allocated to Local Health Districts for COVID-19 activities. This is one-time funding that will be distributed to Public Health Emergency Preparedness (PHEP) recipients and subcontracted to non-PHEP local health departments where applicable.

Emergency action is requested to allow the financial transaction to be posted in the City’s accounting system as soon as possible to bolster the emergency response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

FISCAL IMPACT: The grant program award ($674,059.00) is fully funded by the Ohio Department of Health and does not generate revenue.
