SUBMITTED BY: Delfino E. Neira, Director, Department of Social Services

SUBJECT: Ratification of Amendment I to Agreement D-20-530

RECOMMENDED ACTION(S):
TITLE
Approve and authorize the Chairman to ratify Amendment I to Agreement No. D-20-530 with RH Community Builders for Emergency Shelter Services in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, previously executed on September 30, 2021 by the County Administrative Officer acting as the Emergency Services Director, to extend the term by six months from September 30, 2021 to March 31, 2022 with one optional six-month renewal through September 30, 2022 and increasing the maximum by $2,872,866 to a total of $4,962,351.

The maximum amount of the agreement ($4,962,351) will be fully offset with CDSS Project Roomkey and Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG) Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act funding. Sufficient appropriations and estimated revenues are included in the Department's Org 5610 FY 2021-22 Adopted Budget and ...
