Resolution authorizing an emergency appropriation in the amount of $169,959 of Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds (CSLFRF) as part of the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) for Pandemic Health Navigator Technology licensing for one year in Fund 746 ARPA Fund.

Staff Summary
* The ARPA was signed into law on March 11, 2021. On May 19, 2021 the County received $67,646,879, half of the amount the County will receive in total from the US Treasury.
* The funds can be used for needs associated with public health, to counteract negative economic impacts, provide services to disproportionately impacted communities, for infrastructure, to provide premium pay, for governmental operations in an amount equal to lost revenue, and for administrative purposes during a period from March 3, 2021 to December 31, 2024.
* There are extensive reporting, compliance, performance metrics, equity and evidence-based reporting requirements for ARPA spend in a specific format required by the U.S. Treasury.
* The Health Department received a grant from the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) that has been extended to June 2022 for a COVID-19 Pandemic Health Navigator Program which uses navigators to help prevent transmission of COVID-19 through education and outreach, coordinating resources, and providing contact tracing support. In order to do this, the navigators must have licenses for the Salesforce/AllVax system.
* It is anticipated that this expense will be covered under a direct expense category for Public Health purposes.
* Authority to spend appropriated funds and execute any and all agreements with partners related to this allocation and distribution of Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds is delegated to the County Administrator or his designee(s).
