RECOMMENDATION
Discuss and consider approval of Budget Worksheets with Certifications, Unit Rate Calculations, and In-Kind Certfications for Home-Delivered Meals, Congregate Meals, and Transportation as it relates to Title III and Title XX funding and extending agreement with Coastal Bend Council of Government for Older Americans Act Program.
BACKGROUND
Nueces County Community Services began the Meals on Wheels program in 1989 to meet the evergrowing needs of the seniors in rural Nueces County.  This program helps to effectively meet the needs of the seniors in the program area.  The program currently serves Robstown, Banquete, Driscoll, Agua Dulce, Bishop, Petronilla, Port Aransas and the surrounding communities.  This program provides a well balanced, 1/3 RDA, nutritious hot meal to persons who are not able to provide for themselves as well as the physically challenged.

An additional benefit provided by the program is daily contact with the homebound seniors.  This provides a source of aid to the senior.  Meal delivery personnel are trained to notice any changes in the senior and any changes in the senior's environment.  In cases where seniors do not receive their meals an attempt is made to locate the senior.  Any changes to the senior's status are reported to the DHS caseworker within 24 hours.
DISCUSSION
The agreement is for a term of one (1) year beginning on October 1, 2014 and ending on September 30, 2015.  This contract may be cancelled by mutual consent, or either party to this contract may consider it to be cancelled by the giving of thirty (30) days notice in writing to the other party and this contract shall thereupon be cancelled upon the expiratio of such thirty (30) day period.
