Explanation

BACKGROUND: Columbus Public Health has been awarded a grant from the Ohio Department of Health. This ordinance is needed to accept and appropriate $1,100,000.00 in grant monies to fund the Implementing Enhanced HIV Prevention and Surveillance (P&S) for Health Departments to End the HIV Epidemic in Ohio grant program, for the period June 1, 2021 through July 31, 2022. The total amount funded for this period is $1,100,000.00.
Columbus Public Health, in partnership with community leaders, developed a strategic plan to reduce the number of people living with HIV by 75% in 5 years and 90% in 10 years. Columbus Public Health (CPH) embraces the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s mantra toward Ending the HIV Epidemic, which is to create “Disruptive Innovation”. Specifically, CPH will seek to prevent new HIV infections by focusing on four (4) pillars: treating HIV to achieve viral suppression, diagnose HIV so all person know their HIV status, prevent infections through PrEP and syringe support programs, and respond to HIV clusters, or outbreaks, within the community. This grant specifically focuses on the diagnose and prevent pillars.
Emergency action is requested 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.

FISCAL IMPACT: The Implementing Enhanced HIV P&S for Health Departments Grant Program is entirely funded by the U. S. Department of Health and Human Services and does not generate revenue or require a City match. ($1,100,000.00)
