Background and Discussion:
County departments incurred expenses in the Public Improvement Contingency (PIC) Fund in response to COVID-19. Expenses of $16.6M have been identified in the PIC Fund that are not eligible for reimbursement by FEMA and are related to contact tracing, increased inmate meal costs, and election technology. This request is to transfer these expenses from the PIC Fund to the COVID Response & Recovery (R&R) Fund, which was established for COVID-19 expenses not reimbursed by FEMA and to minimize compliance requirements required by CARES.

Expected Impact:
Transferring these expenses to the COVID R&R Fund will increase funds available in the PIC Fund for other COVID-19 expenses that maybe incurred or for other non-COVID initiatives instituted by Commissioners Court.

Alternative Options:
Commissioners Court could take no action and leave the expenses in the PIC Fund, which would not increase the funds available in the PIC Fund.
