Background and Discussion:
The awarding of this grant may be delayed by the grantor but it is anticipated that we will receive this award in October 2022 or soon thereafter. This temporary budget transfer also serves to start the workflow to roll the grant positions into the new project.

Expected Impact:
The temporary budget transfer amount is $85,000.

Alternative Options:
If we do not complete this temporary budget transfer 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.

Alignment with Goal(s):
X Justice and Safety
_ Economic Opportunity
_ Housing
_ Public Health
_ Transportation
_ Flooding
_ Environment
_ Governance and Customer Service
