Executive Summary with Rationale and Impact:

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

Request budget appropriation of $653,600 for the Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) from the State of Colorado Department of Local Affairs. CSBG funded projects are intended to alleviate the effects of poverty, demonstrate a way out of poverty and promote long-term or sustainable futures for low income persons. Denver Human Services (DHS) receives this grant on an annual basis.  DHS is requesting to establish budget based off the award letter from the funder which equates to 80 percent of the total forecasted award. The total award estimate is $817,000. Establishing budget will facilitate continuity of service provision.
