Type of Action Requested: Resolution

SUBJECT:
Request Authorization to apply for and accept grant funding from the Federal Aviation Administration, American Rescue Plan Grant 
RECOMMENDATION:
Staff recommends the Mayor and City Council authorize the City Manager to apply for and accept grant funding from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Airport Rescue Plan Grants in an amount not to exceed $32,000 and to execute all grant & contract documents, disburse funds and perform necessary budget transfers.
DISCUSSION:
The American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (H.R. 1319, Public Law 117-2), signed into law by the President on March 11, 2021, includes $8 billion in funds to be awarded as economic assistance to eligible U.S. airports to prevent, prepare for, and respond to the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic.
 
To distribute these funds, the FAA has established the Airport Rescue Grant program.  Under this grant program, the Casa Grande Municipal Airport is eligible to receive $32,000.
 
The Airport is aware that budgets are limited, and alternate funding sources should be sought when possible - especially in a time of crisis. These funds will be used by the Airport to provide funding for costs related to operations, personnel, cleaning, sanitization, janitorial services, and combating the spread of COVID-19 at the Airport. 
 
FISCAL IMPACT:
There are no matching funds required for this grant. Upon approval, necessary transfers will occur within the grant fund to establish required spending authority equal to the amount of the grant.
ALTERNATIVES:
Deny or Modify Request
