RECOMMENDATION
Rescind resolution of September 30, 2015 and adopt a revised resolution authorizing the submission of a grant application for the Texas Department of Agriculture, Texans Feeding Texans: Home Delivered Meal Grant Program; and rescind resolution of September 30,2015 and adopt a revised resolution in support of the City of Corpus Christi’s participation in the program.
BACKGROUND
The Texans Feeding Texans: Home Delivered Meals Program strives to award funds to supplement and extend existing services related directly to delivery of meals to Homebound Elderly persons and Homebound persons with a disability.

The application amount for the County is $10,120.50 and there is no match required for this program. Award is based on the number of meals served to elderly and disabled persons living in Nueces County multiplied by the maximum allowable for reimbursement of $0.25 per meal.

The City of Corpus Christi is also applying for the grant this year, which also requires a resolution by the Commissioners Court. Since the law was written to have all counties approve resolutions for any of the providers throughout the County, the City of Corpus Christi Senior Community Services respectfully requested Commissioners Court’s approval to apply.
DISCUSSION
On September 30, 2015, the Commissioners Court approved two resolutions, authorizing the City and County to apply for these grant funds. However, the resolutions are missing some language that the Texas Department of Agriculture now requires. Section 3 of the resolution will now read as follows:

“SECTION 3: The County hereby certifies that it has approved the Organization’s accounting system or fiscal agent which meets financial management system requirements as set forth in Uniform Grant Management Standards.”

The Texas Department of Agriculture has indicated that applications will not be accepted unless the above language is included within the approved resolutions. The deadline for all application components is November 2, 2015.
