Body

SUMMARY & BACKGROUND:

Ordinance 155-19 passed by Council and signed by the Mayor was an estimate of what was anticipated to be received from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for the Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG).  The City of Toledo was informed by HUD it will receive $632,768 for Fiscal Year 2019.  This Ordinance makes the necessary amendments to Ordinance 155-19 by amending the relevant Sections in said legislation. 

 

The financial impact of this Ordinance is the receipt of $632,768; $26,378 more than what was anticipated from HUD to the City of Toledo for the administration of the ESG program to end homelessness in the Toledo community.  No new programs or activities are added to those approved by City Council and the Mayor under Ordinance 155-19.
