The District has been a partner with the Department of Social and Health Services for the provision of refugee health screening services (Exhibit A). This amendment (Exhibit B) extends the agreement an additional year, making the total contract period October 1, 2020, through September 30, 2023. It also increases the total amount of the contract by $300,000 which brings the total amount to $810,000. A breakdown of the contract amounts are as follows:
2020 – 2021: $230,000
2021 – 2022: $280,000
2022 – 2023: $300,000
The increase in funding for the 2022 – 2023 contract period reflect the assumed increase in refugees coming into the county. The contract body of work remains the same as prior years.
This contract funds 1.5 FTE public health nurses and a program assistant.
|Consistent with Resolution 19-20 and the revised Division of Responsibilities (10/8/19), the Board of Health retains contract approval authority for new, extending, or renewing grants and contracts over $50,000 or that require matching funds. |
