Vector Control Grant Extension
Maria Medrano, Grants Department
Ratify the execution of a no-cost time extension to a contract with the Texas Department of State Health Services under the Hurricane Crisis Cooperative funding opportunity for traditional vector control.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention awarded Texas $11 million for funding local public health activities with a strong link to hurricane recovery and/or preparedness activities. The majority of the funds were targeted to jurisdictions within the 2017 Governor’s Hurricane Harvey disaster declaration area. The Texas Department of State Health Services announced that the funding would be made available through their office in six (6) specific areas, one of which being traditional vector control.
On January 23, 2019, the Commissioners Court accepted a grant award from the Texas Department of State Health Services for traditional vector control in the amount of $105,724. Public Works identified several needs in the area of vector control and grant funds are to be used for the following: 4 foggers for roadway spraying; 3 microscopes for mosquito identification; mosquito, gravid, and light traps for larval control; larvacide for treatment of larvae in the water; 2 16’ trailers to carry/haul equipment; and training and study materials to train/license a new pesticide applicator.
Amendment #1 added $43,471 to the budget and extended the grant to December 31, 2020 from June 30, 2020.
Amendment #2 is a no-cost time extension to allow additional time to spend the grant funds. The new end date is June 30, 2021.
