Title
Joint resolution authorizing the application, acceptance, and emergency appropriation of a State Fiscal Year (SFY) 2020 Coronavirus Emergency Supplemental Fund (CESF) Grant from the Children's Advocacy Centers of Illinois in the amount of $30,000 to the Lake County Children's Advocacy Center (LCCAC) for personnel and supply expenses related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Staff Summary
* Established in 1987, the Lake County Children's Advocacy Center (LCCAC) is where children are brought for a forensic interview when there has been an allegation of sexual abuse, severe physical abuse or a child has been a witness to a major crime. The LCCAC is a child-focused center that coordinates the investigation and prosecution of these cases.
* This is an application for a SFY 2020 CESF grant from the Children's Advocacy Centers of Illinois.
* The LCCAC, through the Lake County State's Attorney's Office, is eligible to apply for $30,000 in SFY 2020 CESF grant funds.
* The grant term is for one year, starting September 1, 2020 through August 31, 2021.
* The LCCAC will use $30,000 towards personnel ($12,000) and supply ($18,000) expenses related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
* Annually, the Lake County Children's Advocacy Center provides any additional salary and fringe benefit costs related to victim advocate personnel expenses not covered by grant funds by reimbursing the State's Attorney's Office. This CESF funding will help to offset COVID-19 related loss of revenue (reduced court fines/fees and fundraising ability) that the LCCAC has experienced.
* The source of program funding is 100 percent grant funding; no match is required.
