RECOMMENDATION(S):

APPROVE and AUTHORIZE the Purchasing Agent, on behalf of the Health Services Department, to purchase food for the Program Governance Meetings totaling no more than $300 (15 people at $20 each for 1 month) and gift card incentives totaling $500 (100 $5 gift cards) for the Health Care for the Homeless Program participants, for the period from February 1, 2020 through January 31, 2021.

FISCAL IMPACT:

The purchases will result in budgeted expenditures of up to $800 and are authorized and 100% funded by the U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) Grant and FQHC reimbursement. No County funds required.










BACKGROUND:

The Health Care for the Homeless Program received a grant from Health Resources and Services Administration to provide health care for the homeless population in Contra Costa County. A requirement of the grant is to establish and maintain Program Governance through a Co-Application Governing Board for Health Care for the Homeless program evaluation and CEO/Program Director evaluation. Additionally, another component of the grant is to conduct monthly focus groups with participants in the program and to offer incentives to those who participate. Included in the approved grant budget is a line item for food/incentives at an annual amount of $5,000.  
  
The Health Service Department anticipates purchasing 100 $5 gift cards as incentives and providing food at the Program Governance meetings. Since COVID-19 in-person meetings have not occurred, therefore the department is only requesting up to $300 to cover any Program Governance meeting food purchases prior to COVID-19. Approval of these purchases will cover food for the governance meetings and gift cards for the Health Care for the Homeless Program, through January 31, 2021.

CONSEQUENCE OF NEGATIVE ACTION:

If these purchases are not approved, the Health Care for the Homeless Program would not be fulfilling the goals outlined in the HRSA Grant.
