Emergency Ordinance

*Accept grant for $245,666 from the Department of Housing and Urban Development for the administration of the regional Homeless Management Information System

Passed

The City of Portland ordains:

Section 1.  The Council finds:

  1. Through Ordinance 187843, the Council authorized the formation of the Joint Office of Homeless Services to oversee and submit our community’s annual Continuum of Care (CoC) collaborative application to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), which includes one grant to the City of Portland for $245,666 for the administration of the regional Homeless Management Information System (HMIS).
  1. The Joint Office of Homeless Services, a department of Multnomah County, submitted the 2020 CoC collaborative application for funding in November of 2020; and
  1. HUD notified the City of Portland it will award one grant for administration of the regional HMIS in the amount of $245,666.  This grant requires a cash match of $61,417.

NOW, THEREFORE, the Council directs:

  1. The Mayor is hereby authorized to accept on behalf of the City of Portland the grant from HUD in the amount of $245,666, with a match commitment for $61,417, and to execute the associated grant agreements in a form similar to Exhibit A.
     
  2. These funds were already appropriated in PHB’s FY20-21 and FY21-22 Adopted budgets.
     
  3. PHB and the Office of Management and Finance Grants Management Division are authorized to perform all administrative matters in relation to the grant applications, grant agreements or amendments, requests for reimbursement from the grantor, and to submit required online grant documents on the Mayor’s behalf.
     
  4. The Director of PHB of the City of Portland is authorized to accept on behalf of the City of Portland any subsequent modifications by HUD to the executed grant agreements for the HMIS Grant #OR0025L9E012013, provided such modifications do not increase the City of Portland’s financial obligation or risk. Any modifications that increase the City of Portland’s financial obligation or risk must be authorized by the Portland City Council.

Section 2.  The Council declares that an emergency exists because a delay would unnecessarily delay the City’s ability to perform the activities authorized by the grant; therefore, this ordinance shall be in full force and effect from and after its passage by the Council.

An ordinance when passed by the Council shall be signed by the Auditor. It shall be carefully filed and preserved in the custody of the Auditor (City Charter Chapter 2 Article 1 Section 2-122)
