Title: Joint resolution modifying Workforce Development's budget for an increase to the previously approved Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity (DCEO) Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) grant, authorizing an emergency appropriation in the amount of $27,936, and increasing the headcount of Workforce Development by three full-time employees and two part-time employees.

Title

Joint resolution modifying Workforce Development’s budget for an increase to the previously approved Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity (DCEO) Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) grant, authorizing an emergency appropriation in the amount of $27,936, and increasing the headcount of Workforce Development by three full-time employees and two part-time employees.

 

Staff Summary

                     The $27,936 in additional grant funding has not been previously appropriated because the grant resources were secured after the County’s adoption of the Fiscal Year (FY) 2020 budget.

                     In order to expand the budget authority of Workforce to spend an increase in grant dollars in the middle of FY 2020, the authority must come from an emergency appropriation.

                     The $27,936 grant increase will be used to fund salary and fringe benefits for employees providing programmatic services through FY 2020.

WHEREAS, this grant amount totaling $27,936 has not been previously appropriated, having been awarded after adoption of the Fiscal Year 2020 budget; and

 

WHEREAS, the proposed appropriation will be fully offset by the above referenced items thereby not requiring the expenditure of local tax revenue.

 

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, by this County Board of Lake County, Illinois, that an emergency appropriation in the amount of $27,936 for the Workforce Development Department is hereby approved and be accepted.
