Explanation
BACKGROUND
This legislation authorizes the Director of the Department of Development to enter into a Grant Agreement, in an amount up to $200,000.00, with IMPACT Community Action to provide a capital grant to support the IMPACT 2020 campaign supporting real property improvements and public benefit programs (“Project”).

IMPACT Community Action relocated its headquarters to 711 Southwood Avenue on the City’s Southside. The new headquarters will enable IMPACT Community Action to fight poverty and inspire hope in new and innovative ways through their IMPACT 2020 campaign. This is a three-phase campaign that began in 2020 and includes the following milestones:

Phase One - (Quiet Phase) our campaign successfully raised $250K for costs paid and/or encumbered prior to our move date in April. We are grateful to the Columbus Foundation for supporting this phase at $75k.

Phase Two - (April 2020 - December 2020) Goal is $750K for technology, telephony, furniture, security monitoring equipment, fiber optic cabling and building renovations.

Phase Three - (January 2021 through December 2021). This phase will support aspirational goals connected to our commercial kitchen/cafeteria, multimedia conference rooms, social enterprise ventures with the skilled trades and our affordable rental housing pilot.

Emergency action is requested in order to fund IMPACT Community Action in order to allow renovation so it can continue to deliver programming for the community.

FISCAL IMPACT: Funding is available in 2020 Capital Improvement Budget.

CONTRACT COMPLIANCE: the vendor number is 00147 and expires 12/16/21.
