Explanation
BACKGROUND:
This ordinance authorizes the Director of Development to execute a Grant Agreement with Rebuilding Together Central Ohio dba ModCon, in an amount up to $300,000.00 in support of two of the organization’s home repair programs. The funding is a combination of $50,000.00 in General Fund and $250,000.00 in Capital funds.

ModCon Living assists homeowners through unique programs and services that help to sustain homes, improve quality of life and preserve affordable homeownership - Building Strong Neighborhoods and Pathways Out of Poverty; keeping vulnerable homeowners in the City of Columbus warm, safe, and dry in their homes.

This ordinance will fund two separate programs. Safe at Home is a Citywide program that provides emergency home repair and modification services at no cost to vulnerable, senior, veteran, and/or disabled residents. This ordinance will also support a newly established neighborhood-specific home repair program in the Southfield/Marion Franklin areas.

Emergency action is necessary to avoid causing interruptions in the delivery of program services.

FISCAL IMPACT: Funding is available within the General Fund (1000), Neighborhood Initiatives Subfund (100018) for $50,000.00 and Development Taxable Bonds Fund (7739) for $250,000.00.
