Background and Discussion:
The awarding of this renewal grant may be delayed by the grantor but it is anticipated that we will receive this award in October 2021. This temporary budget transfer also starts the workflow to renew the current 4 grant positions for the FY 2022 grant. When the award is received, the transfer will be reversed and expenditures will be charged to the grant retroactive to October 1, 2021.

Expected Impact:
This temporary budget transfer will ensure continuity of the Domestic Violence Advocacy program which provides services countywide by providing the necessary funds to cover payroll expenses for the 4 victim advocates.


Alternative Options:
If this temporary budget transfer is not completed and if the grant award is delayed, funds will not be available for salary and benefits costs for the Domestic Violence Advocacy Program and the grant positions may not roll over into the new grant project in time.
