Title

Joint resolution authorizing an emergency appropriation in the amount of $58,008 in Coronavirus Emergency Supplemental Funding for the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) Fiscal Year 2020 Coronavirus Supplemental Grant for personal protective equipment (PPE).

 

Staff Summary

                     The BJA sought applications for the Coronavirus Emergency Supplemental Funding Program to provide funding to local units of government in preventing, preparing for, and responding to the coronavirus.

                     The Lake County Sheriff’s Department applied for and was awarded $58,008. Allowable expenses include supplies (such as gloves, masks, sanitizer) and the Sheriff’s Department’s expenses exceed the grant award for such personal protective equipment.

                     An emergency appropriation is necessary to receive the grant revenue and make the grant funds available for these purposes.
