Explanation

This ordinance authorizes the Director of the Department of Neighborhoods to enter into a subaward grant agreement with Nationwide Children’s Hospital to support Safety Town Columbus in Linden and Hilltop neighborhoods in alignment with the One Linden and Envision Hilltop plans.

Due to the effects of COVID-19, the City of Columbus recognizes many organizations providing summer programming may not have the capacity to do so in 2022.

 

Through the American Rescue Plan Act State and Local Fiscal Recovery Fund, up to $50,000 is allocated to support the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Safety Town Columbus program to administer an evidence-based approach to providing critical safety education to children ages 5 to 7 year’s old.  It has been shown to improve safety knowledge among youth participants while also reducing preventable injuries in the local community after implementation. All expenses must be eligible under the United States Treasury American Rescue Plan State Act guidelines. Expenses must be necessary expenditures incurred due to the public health emergency with respect to the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) between March 10, 2021 and December 31, 2024.

 

Emergency Designation: Emergency action is requested to ensure that students can benefit from summer programming.

Fiscal Impact: Funding is provided to the City of Columbus from the Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Fund passed by Congress on March 10, 2021 and signed into law on March 11, 2021.
