Background and Discussion:
The COVID/IDCU Grant supplements Public Health Services' ability to provide enhanced contact tracing, surveillance of mortality and morbidity and lab reporting in Harris County as it relates to COVID-19 response activities.

Expected Impact:
These additional funds will support activities that are not FEMA reimbursable and reduce Public Health's reliance on current funding sources.

Alternative Options:
Due to the nature of the activities funded by this grant, the only viable alternative would be the use of Public Improvement Contingency (PIC) funding. As stated earlier, these activities are not all FEMA reimbursable.


Alignment with Goal(s):
? Justice and Safety
? Economic Opportunity
? Housing
? Public Health


? Transportation
? Flooding
? Environment
? Governance and Customer Service
