Explanation
This ordinance authorizes the Director of the Department of Neighborhoods to enter into a grant agreement with the Columbus Kappa Foundation in support of their programming for residents in the King-Lincoln District.

The Columbus Kappa Foundation serves the community through a Safe Sleep Initiative in conjunction with CelebrateOne and works with Harm Reduction Ohio to distribute NARCAN to help mitigate some of the challenges with the opioid crisis. The Columbus Kappa Foundation organizes an annual turkey giveaway that has fed thousands of families over the past several years and an annual toy giveaway at Christmas to help the less fortunate. The Columbus Kappa Foundation conducted and contributed to voter registration drives and census awareness promotion. All of these programs are based at the historic Kappa House on Mt. Vernon Ave. These initiatives help build strong neighborhoods by providing services greatly needed in the community. These services promote healthy living and help those living in poverty get some of their essential needs met.

Fiscal Impact: Funding is available within the Neighborhood Initiatives subfund.

Emergency action is requested in order to avoid any delay in supporting the Columbus Kappa Foundation to allow uninterrupted services to help those living in poverty meet some of their essential needs.
