FY2021 Home Delivered Meals City Resolution
Maria Medrano, Grants Department
Adopt a resolution in support of the City of Corpus Christi’s participation in the FY2021 Texas Department of Agriculture, Texans Feeding Texans: Home-Delivered Meals Grant Program.
In accordance with Texas Agriculture Code, §12.042, as enacted by House Bill 407, and House Bill 1, 80th Legislature, Regular Session 2007, the state legislature has appropriated funding to the Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) for distribution, pursuant to the Texans Feeding Texans: Home-Delivered Meals Grant Program (HDMGP), to governmental agencies or qualifying non-profit organizations that deliver meals to homebound persons that are elderly and/or have a disability.
This grant 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, through the Home-Delivered Meals Grant Program; and establishes the requirements for related nutritional standards, recordkeeping and documentation related to the Program.
The City of Corpus Christi is applying for the grant this year, which 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 requests Commissioners Court’s approval to apply. The deadline for all application components is November 1, 2020.
The County will also be submitting an application for this program. The application for the County requires an attachment that lists the number of meals delivered between September 1, 2019 through August 31, 2020. It takes a couple of weeks to compile that information so it is anticipated that the resolution for the County's application will be placed on the October 7, 2020 Commissioners Court agenda.
