RECOMMENDATION
Discuss and consider execution of a Grant Adjustment Notice with the Texas Department of Public Safety for the FY 2010 Operation Stonegarden grant award.
BACKGROUND
The United States Department of Homeland Security awarded OPSG-10 grant monies to the Texas Division of Emergency Management (Recipient) on August 1, 2010 for distribution among the counties. On May 20, 2011, the Texas Division of Emergency Management awarded Nueces County (Sub-recipient) a total of $682,448.00. Nueces County executed the Sub-recipient Agreement and Terms and Conditions to acknowledge acceptance of the award on June 15, 2011.

The approved budget will cover operational overtime, fringe benefits, vehicles, laptops, radars, and other related equipment.
DISCUSSION
The original grant period was from August 1, 2010 through July 31, 2012. However, in February 2012, Nueces County had not yet expended any funds from the 2010 grant. The 2009 grant was in the closeout process and 2010 funds would be used after previous funds were expended. The reason for the delay in spending the 2010 funds is the lapse of time between the grant award and the execution of the Sub-recipient Agreement. Although the performance period for the 2010 grant began on August 1, 2010, the Agreement was not executed until June 15, 2011, over 11 months later.

Due to the above reasons, the County requested an extension for the grant period. The Texas Department of Public Safety prepared the 2010 Grant Adjustment Notice, which extends the grant period to October 31, 2012.

There is no fiscal impact related to this agenda item. The grant award amount remains the same at $682,448.00. No cash match is required on this grant. This agenda item is strictly a time extension.
