Background: Receivable Agreement A178253 was approved by the Board through Resolution 17-0500 on December 12, 2017. However, the Board Action Request did not include a supplemental appropriation as part of this action. Since this was a new grant awarded to Hennepin County by the Pohlad Family Foundation, a supplemental appropriation is needed for the 2018 Human Services and Public Health Department budget. The board action request for Resolution 17-0500 is attached to provide additional background information.
This is a new grant from the Pohlad Family Foundation. The Pohlad Family Foundation has been engaging in a strategic planning process over the course of the past year to identify priorities and focus for funding opportunities available through the Foundation in the future. The Foundation released their funding priorities in the Fall of 2017. Their funding priorities will be focused on unaccompanied youth and families that are at-risk of and currently experiencing homelessness.
Hennepin County has not selected specific contracted providers, at this time, to whom these grant funds will be awarded, given the very quick announcement of and awarding of this grant. Staff from HSPHD s Housing and Homeless Initiatives, the Office of Housing Stability and the Office to End Homelessness are convening to further discuss the disbursement of these funds and related outcomes and evaluation that will be associated with the funds. These funds may be used to increase current contracts that Hennepin County currently has with select providers in our community currently doing the same or similar work. In this case, Hennepin County staff would work to amend these contracts. The goal is to confirm by 12/15/17 with whom the County will contract for these funds and for what specific services.
