 RECOMMENDATIONS

VICE CHAIRMAN GREG COX:

  2. Allocate $10,000 from the Neighborhood Reinvestment Program budget (Org 15650) to reimburse I Love A Clean San Diego for the purchase of file cabinets, paper shredder, computer, printer, and scales, canopy, chairs, loppers, banners, signage, shirts and sweatshirts, truck bed cover, GPS mapping unit, general office supplies and other printing costs associated with the Creek to Bay Cleanup 2012.
  3. Authorize the Chief Financial Officer to execute grant agreements with these organizations establishing terms for receipt of the funds described above and to make minor amendments to the agreements that are consistent with the general purpose of the grant but do not increase the grant.
  4. Find that the grant awards described above have a public purpose.

 Fiscal Impact:

The fiscal impact of these grants is $19,300.  These actions will result in the addition of no staff years and no future costs.

 BACKGROUND:

Chula Vista Veterans Home Support Foundation

The Chula Vista Veterans Home Support Foundation (CVVHSF) is a non-profit whose purpose is to benefit the disabled and elderly military veterans who reside in the Veterans Home. Over 40% of these veterans are listed in the “extremely low” income status, the lowest quintile for income measurement. With this grant, the CVVHSF will purchase a motorized bariatric lift system to lift bedridden veterans to and from bed, which will help prevent occupational injuries and enhance residents’ care and safety. 

I Love A Clean San Diego

For over 50 years, I Love a Clean San Diego (ILACSD) has served the San Diego region as an environmental non-profit organization dedicated to educating the public and helping clean our beaches and bays. At Creek to Bay 2011, over 5,300 volunteers covered 170 miles and removed 80 tons of debris. If approved, today’s grant will reimburse ILACSD for the purchase of cleanup supplies, printing of promotional & event materials, and necessary technology upgrades to handle increased volunteer correspondence and registration needs for the 2012 Creek to Bay cleanup.  Specific items purchased include file cabinets, paper shredder, computer, printer, and scales, canopy, chairs, loppers, banners, signage, shirts and sweatshirts, truck bed cover, GPS mapping unit, general office supplies and other printing costs associated with the Creek to Bay Cleanup 2012.
