Resolution authorizing an emergency appropriation in the amount of $1,000,000 for community prevention support and resources, funded by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act Relief Fund.

 

staff summary

                     The CARES Act was passed by Congress and signed into law on March 27, 2020. Lake County’s population over 500,000 resulted in the ability to directly apply for funding. On April 23, 2020, Lake County received $121,539,986.20.

                     These funds are required to be used to cover expenses that: 1) are necessary due to the public health emergency with respect to the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19); 2) were not accounted for in Lake County’s approved Fiscal Year 2020 budget; and 3) were incurred during the period March 1, 2020 - December 30, 2020.

                     On Friday, June 26, 2020, the F&A Special Committee on COVID-19 Recovery determined the use of a portion of these funds: $1,000,000 in community prevention support consisting of personal protective equipment safety kits and risk-mitigation education/outreach in COVID-19 impacted communities of color.

                     An emergency appropriation is necessary to make the funds available for these purposes.

                     To ensure maximum efficiency in meeting community needs within this program fund, Lake County will contractually rely on designated community partners to distribute funds to their clients in accordance with federal spending criteria, and contract authority will be delegated within the program fund to the County Administrator or their designee(s).
