SUBJECT: Resolution Authorizing the County as Administrative Entity for CARES Act Allocation of Emergency Solutions Grant Funding

TITLE
Adopt Resolution authorizing the County of Fresno, through the Department of Social Services, to serve as the Administrative Entity on behalf of the Fresno Madera Continuum of Care for Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act Allocation of Emergency Solutions Grant funding administered by the California Department of Housing and Community Development.
