Explanation

BACKGROUND: This legislation authorizes the Director of Development to modify a contract with the IMPACT Community Action Agency (IMPACT) for the fourth time in order to add additional funds.

On May 18, 2020, Columbus City Council passed Ordinance 1210-2020 for IMPACT Community Action Agency to provide $2,650,000.00 of CARES Act funding as matching funds for the Hope Program. On June 29, 2020, Columbus City Council passed Ordinance 1408-2020 to expand the range of eligible expenses for the program. On July 30, 2020, Columbus City Council passed Ordinance 1810-2020 to add $7,350,000.00 and to further modify the scope of services. On October 26, 2020, Columbus City council passed Ordinance 2433-2020 to modify the contract again to reflect the needs of the program. This ordinance seeks to add additional funds.

The department contracted with IMPACT to provide rent and mortgage assistance to families affected by COVID-19. The need is greater than anticipated and IMPACT has the capacity to deploy additional funds into the community.
