Explanation

 

Columbus Public Health has been awarded a grant from the Ohio Department of Health originating from the Centers for Disease Control.  This ordinance is needed to accept and appropriate $132,000.00 in grant monies to fund the FY23 Tobacco Use Prevention and Cessation Grant Program for the period of July 1, 2022 through June 30, 2023. 

 

The Tobacco Use Prevention and Cessation Program will increase the readiness of our community to initiate and engage in tobacco control and cessation strategies with an anticipated outcome of creating social norm change to decrease initiation and use of tobacco in local communities (including the initiation of the use of e-cigarettes/vaping products), to increase quitting of tobacco, to decrease the community’s exposure to secondhand smoke, and to decrease disparities in tobacco burden usually associated with health inequities. It is the expectation that at the end of three years there will be evidence of sustainable change.

 

Emergency action is requested to allow the financial transaction to be posted in the City's accounting system as soon as possible. Up to date financial posting promotes accurate accounting and financial management.

 

FISCAL IMPACT:  The program is fully funded by the Centers for Disease Control and the Ohio Department of Health and does not generate revenue or require a City match ($132,000.00).
