Regular City Council Meeting
Resolution - Public Health Services:
Consider a resolution authorizing the Mayor to execute Amendment No. 1 to Contract HHS000077800035, under the HIV Prevention Services Contract and any associated documents, by and between the City of Lubbock and the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS), to provide funding for HIV prevention services provided by the City of Lubbock Health Department.
This contract provides funding from the HIV-STD Program of the Texas DSHS. The 2020 contract with the DSHS will provide financial assistance to strengthen prevention activities in the community including community engagement, focused HIV testing to at-risk populations, and linkage to pharmaceutical therapies such as Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP). The grant will enable staff to reach individuals outside of the traditional clinical setting.
This is a new funding stream for the Health Department. This grant will fund the salary and benefits of a Case Manager and Health Promotion Worker. Both of these positions were approved in the FY 2019-20 budget contingent on this funding. The grant will also reimburse the department for testing supplies, educational materials, travel, and training opportunities.
Amendment 1 is effective January 1, 2021, and extends the termination deadline from December 31, 2020, to December 31, 2021. It also increases the amount of the contract by $189,439, making a total contract amount of $957,756.
The amendment is for an additional $189,439 to fund the program for FY 2021.
Bill Howerton, Deputy City Manager
