Explanation
BACKGROUND:
This ordinance authorizes the City Clerk to enter into a grant agreement with Columbus State Foundation in support of the Central Ohio Restored Citizens’ Collaborative for sponsorship of their 2021 Franklin County Re-entry Week events. The total amount of this grant agreement is $6,000.
The intent of the 2021 Franklin County Re-entry Week was to assist those who have reentered or have past justice-involvement to secure necessary identification to continue toward good-paying jobs, maintain stability and strengthen their community reintegration.

The grant dollars will be used to assist with additional events to help individuals obtain birth certificates and ids.

Emergency action is necessary due to the time-sensitive deadlines of event sponsorship.

FISCAL IMPACT: Funding is available in the Public Safety Initiatives subfund.
