SUBJECT/RECOMMENDATION:

Title

Approve a one-year Agreement with Juvenile Welfare Board (JWB) and the City of Clearwater for funding youth programs and approve a first quarter budget amendment of $394,095 in special program G2107, JWB Youth Programming and authorize the appropriate officials to execute same. (consent)

 

Body

SUMMARY: 

Since 2000, the City has received annual funding from the JWB Children’s Services Council to provide after school and summer programming for youth in Clearwater.  Once again, the City has been awarded funding for youth programming for Fiscal Year 2021/2022 from JWB. 

 

The funding provides the “Charting a Course for Youth” program for 193 children at the North Greenwood and Ross Norton recreation facilities throughout the year. 

 

“Charting a Course for Youth” is a program designed to incorporate exercise and nutrition-based activities in an after school and summer camp setting, to improve academic success, encourage healthy lifestyle choices, improve social skills, increase athletic abilities, and develop leadership skills of the participants. The program serves school aged children at the Ross Norton and North Greenwood Recreation Complexes.

 

In June 2015, the City Resource Committee approved the original grant application that covered 2015 and additional years.  This year, JWB did not require a request for proposal, thus providing a continuation of program services.

 

There is no requirement to continue the program when the grant ends.

 

APPROPRIATION CODE AND AMOUNT:

A first quarter budget amendment will establish the new special program and provide an increase of $394,095 in other governmental revenue in G2107, JWB Youth Programming, to account for both revenues and expenditures for this agreement.

USE OF RESERVE FUNDS:
