BACKGROUND: Columbus Public Health has been awarded a grant from the Ohio Department of Health. Ordinance No. 2926-2019 authorized the acceptance and appropriation of $374,204.00 in grant money. This ordinance is needed to accept and appropriate an additional $30,000.00 in grant monies to fund the 2020 STI Prevention Grant Program, for the period of January 1, 2020 through December 31, 2020. The total amount funded for this period is $404,204.00.

The STI Prevention grant program enables Columbus Public Health to identify and prevent sexually transmitted diseases through gonorrhea culture screening, syphilis elimination, gonococcal isolate surveillance, and partner services. Additionally, Columbus Public Health assures the quality of medical and laboratory services, surveillance, partner services, and data management. All activities are conducted with special emphasis on populations at high risk such as correction facilities, organizations focusing on adolescents, and managed care settings.

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. Up to date financial posting promotes accurate accounting and financial management.
