Background and Discussion:

On March 24, 2020, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic event, Commissioners Court authorized initial funding to support activities related to services for the homeless population.  On July 28, 2020 and December 1, 2020, additional funding was approved to continue same support activities. 

On or around April 2, 2020, Harris County entered into Master Agreements with UHP Health Partners, Inc. and Tetra Tech, Inc. to operate and monitor the operations of a medical isolation and recovery shelter to assist Vulnerable Residents of Harris County during the COVID-19 Public Health Disaster.  The City of Houston holds the lease of the hotel and Harris County holds the contracts with the site operator and onsite monitor.
