SUBJECT:                     Retroactive Amendment to Agreement with the California Department of Public Health for Project LAUNCH

 

RECOMMENDED ACTION(S):

TITLE

Approve and authorize the Chairman to execute retroactive Amendment II to Agreement No. 16-502 with California Department of Public Health, to revise the scope of work and funding for the Project LAUNCH (Linking and Addressing the Unmet Needs for Children’s Health) Program, effective July 1, 2017, extending the term by three months from June 30, 2019 to September 30, 2019 and decreasing the maximum compensation by $61,328 to a total of $306,640.

REPORT

Approval of the recommended action will extend the term of the agreement, replace the Scope of Work in its entirety to reflect the extended term, and clarify details to ensure compliance with the implementation and evaluation requirements of the California Department of Public Health’s (CDPH) Project LAUNCH (Linking and Addressing the Unmet Needs for Children’s Health) Program.  The recommended amendment reduces funding for Budget Year Three ($30,664) and Budget Year Four ($57,032), and allocates additional funding for the three-month extension period ($26,368).  This item is countywide.

 

ALTERNATIVE ACTION(S):

 

There are no viable alternative options

 

RETROACTIVE AGREEMENT:

 

The recommended amendment was received from CDPH on April 10, 2019 and is retroactive to July 1, 2017 due to decreases in Budget Years Two and Three. The time required to prepare and review the recommended amendment did not allow presentation to your Board at an earlier date. 

 

FISCAL IMPACT:

 

There is no increase in Net County Cost associated with the recommended action. The recommended amendment represents a $61,328 decrease from the original $367,968 amount.  Amended funding by grant year is as follows:

Year One (12/1/15-6/30/16): $0

Year Two (7/1/16 - 6/30/17): $122,656

Year Three (7/1/17 - 6/30/18): $91,992 (decrease of $30,664, 25%).

Year Four (7/1/18 - 6/30/19): $65,624 (decrease of $57,032, 46.5%).

Year Five (7/1/19 - 9/30/19): $26,368 (increase of $26,368).

Term maximum: $306,640 (decrease of 16.67%).

 

Funding decreases align with actual costs dedicated to the program, and do not affect services or staff funding. Sufficient appropriations and estimated revenues are included in the Department of Public Health’s Org 5620 FY 2018-19 Adopted Budget and will be included in the FY 2019-20 budget request.

 

DISCUSSION:

 

On August 9, 2016, the Board approved Agreement No. 16-502 with CDPH to implement Project LAUNCH in the County.  The agreement allowed the Department to participate in technical assistance and training provided by Alameda County Public Health, the lead local health jurisdiction, and utilize Parent Café strategies to build family engagement, improve mental health, reduce substance use, increase parenting skills, and improve maternal and child health.

 

On August 22, 2017, the Board approved Amendment I to shift and reallocate funds from the first year to the three remaining years.

 

The recommended amendment will decrease funding to the Program as result of a statewide reduction in funding, with no impact to services, and extend the agreement for three months.
