TITLE

Recommendation to authorize City Manager, or designee, to execute an agreement, and any subsequent amendments, with the California Community Foundation, on behalf of Kaiser Foundation Hospitals, to accept and expend grant funding in the amount of $90,000, for North Long Beach Healthy Eating Active Living (HEAL) Zone activities, for the period of June 1, 2019 through June 1, 2020; and

 

Increase appropriations in the Health Fund Group in the Health and Human Services Department by $90,000, offset by grant revenues.  (Citywide)

 

DISCUSSION

On May 3, 2016, the City Council authorized an agreement with the California Community Foundation, on behalf of Kaiser Foundation Hospitals, to accept funding in the amount of $1,000,000 for the period from April 1, 2016 to April 1, 2019, for the implementation of the Health and Human Services Department (Health Department) North Long Beach HEAL Zone Initiative.  The HEAL Zone Initiative helps address the growing obesity epidemic by supporting community transformation with the goal of creating changes that support lasting health improvements for residents of North Long Beach over time.  Kaiser Foundation Hospitals has once again awarded the Health Department a $90,000 grant for the period of June 1, 2019 through June 1, 2020 to implement the HEAL Zone Initiative Sustainability Phase.  This phase will build upon prior years' work by continuing to partner with the Coalition for a Healthy North Long Beach to sustain opportunities for healthy eating and physical activity.

 

The Health Department will use Kaiser Permanente funding to implement safe routes to school strategies, improve walkability, and support neighborhood-based projects in collaboration with the Coalition for a Healthy North Long Beach.

 

This matter was reviewed by Deputy City Attorney Taylor M. Anderson on May 29, 2019 and by Revenue Management Officer Geraldine Alejo on May 30, 2019.

 

TIMING CONSIDERATIONS

City Council action is requested on June 18, 2019, to accept funding to begin the program.

 

FISCAL IMPACT

The City will receive $90,000 on or before June 1, 2019 for the period of June 1, 2019 through June 1, 2020.  An appropriation increase in the amount of $90,000 is requested in the Health Fund Group in the Health and Human Services Department, offset by grant revenues.  No match or in-kind service mandate is required. This recommendation has no staffing impact beyond the normal budgeted scope of duties and is consistent with existing City Council priorities. There is no local job impact associated with this recommendation.
