Explanation

BACKGROUND: Columbus Public Health has been awarded a grant from the Ohio Department of Health originating from the U.S Department of Transportation. This ordinance is needed to accept and appropriate $65,000.00 in grant money to fund the Occupant Protection Regional Coordination for the Ohio Buckles Buckeye (OBB) grant program for the period of October 1, 2021 through September 30, 2022.
The Occupant Protection Regional Coordination grant supports the statewide network of the child passenger safety program, known as Ohio Buckles Buckeyes (OBB). The Occupant Protection Regional Coordinators serve as the regional liaisons between ODH and the county-level contacts at the OBB Sites. This grant supports the regional coordinators as they work with local OBB sites to educate parents, lower child occupant protection misuse rates in Ohio, provide community resources, especially those in underserves and high-risk communities, and provide appropriate car seats to families that qualify under Women Infant and Children federal guidelines. Columbus Public Health is the regional coordinator for Region 5, which includes Franklin County and 13 surrounding counties.
This ordinance is submitted as an emergency so as to not delay car seat program services to Franklin County and 13 surrounding counties.

FISCAL IMPACT: The Ohio Buckles Buckeye program is funded by the U.S. Department of Transportation through the Ohio Department of Health and does not generate revenue or require a city match.
