ASSEMBLY AGENDA/MANAGER'S REPORT
THE CITY AND BOROUGH OF JUNEAU, ALASKA

Ordinance 2018-11(X) An Ordinance Appropriating to the Manager the Sum of $52,763 as Partial Funding for the Housing and Homelessness Services Coordinator Project; Grant Funding Provided by the Alaska Mental Health Trust Authority.

MANAGER'S REPORT:

The Alaska Mental Health Trust Authority approved a $52,763 “house-keeping” grant submitted by CBJ at the request of the Trust.  This grant streamlines travel funding and re-establishes a fiscal year grant cycle.  One element of this grant is for $36,355.  The original award was for $100,000 a year for up to three years, beginning in FY2018.  Our Housing and Homelessness Services Coordinator was hired seven months into the fiscal year.  This funding fills the gap between fiscal years and allows the Trust to assume a regular grant cycle in FY2020.  The other element of this grant is $16,398 in travel and training dollars for the Housing and Homelessness Services Coordinator and the Chief Housing Officer to participate in homelessness-related training and conferences.  Rather than approve them individually, the Trust requested they be submitted as a plan.

RECOMMENDATION:

The City Manager recommends this ordinance be adopted.
