Explanation
BACKGROUND: This ordinance authorizes the appropriation and expenditure of the remaining $223,661.00 of the anticipated FY 2020 Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for the Department of Development and authorizes the Director of Development to modify an existing agreement with the Community Shelter Board for the administration of the City's Emergency Solutions Grant monies.

Historically, the City has received from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) an annual ESG grant amount greater than $550,000 (the amount fluctuates each year). Under Ordinance 3025-2019 the department received approval to appropriate and expend a portion of the grant before the federal grant agreement was executed with the understanding that it would then execute a planned, agreement modification for the remaining fund amount after the grant amount became known. HUD has now made the 2020 ESG grant amount known ($623,661.00).

Original agreement $400,000.00 Ord. 3025-2019 PO208471
Modification one $223,661.00
Total agreement amount $623,661.00

This grant is authorized under the 2020 Action Plan, per Ordinance 2162-2019.
