Background and Discussion:
The TVC grant is utilized by the VSD to help prevent veterans, surviving spouses, and dependents from becoming homeless and/or going into a financial crisis. The VSD accomplishes this by screening and qualifying all applicants for emergency financial assistance with rent, utility, or vehicle repair funds. This is the first reimbursement request of GY22-23. There was an extra $1,556.09 in our Imprest account, due to some refunded checks at the end of GY21-22. We are only requesting a reimbursement of $30,000 despite mailing checks that totaled $30,118.22. The next request will be again be lower to fully offset the difference.

Expected Impact: The reimbursement is fully covered by state grant funds.

Alternative Options: Without the funds being reimbursed the VSD will run out of funds in the Imprest account.
