Executive Summary with Rationale and Impact:

Detailed description of the item and why we are doing it. This can be a separate attachment.

As a part of the creation of the Department of Housing Stability (HOST) in the 2020 Budget, funding that supports staffing and programs dedicated to individuals experiencing homelessness is moving from Denver Human Services (DHS) to HOST. As part of this move, the Emergency Solutions Grant program will be administered by HOST instead of DHS. A new grant fund, the Emergency Solutions Fund, Fund No, 16015, will be established in the Community Development Special Revenue Fund Series for this grant. The previous grant fund in the Human Services Special Revenue Fund Series, Fund No. 13009, will be closed after the aforementioned transactions are completed.

 

Transferring the Emergency Solutions Center grant program from DHS to HOST administration may require financial transactions or other administrative actions to complete the transition in the City’s financial system of record.

 

The cost center for the new grant fund will be 0145100.

 

A summary of all Emergency Solutions grant funds can be found in the “Grants” section of the 2020 budget book.
