Quick Summary / Abstract: Staff will present Resolution No. 118-19/20, Designation of Applicant's Agent Resolution for Non-State Agencies - Disaster Recovery / COVID-19 and Others, for our Board of Trustees' approval.
Background: On March 1, 2020, the Alameda County Public Health Department declared a State of Emergency due to the outbreak and spread of the COVID-19 virus, and COVID-19 cases continued to increase in Alameda County.

On March 4, 2020, the Governor of California declared a State of Emergency due to the outbreak and spread of the COVID-19 virus, and COVID-19 cases continued to increase in California.

On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the COVID-19 virus a world-wide pandemic and cases continued to increase globally.

On March 13, 2020, the President of the United States declared a State of Emergency due to the outbreak and spread of the COVID-19 virus pandemic of sufficient severity and magnitude to warrant an emergency declaration for all states pursuant to Section 501 (b) of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act. This national emergency declaration increases federal support for state and local responses to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Status In order for our District to be eligible for reimbursements from the federal or State government, we are asking for our Board of Trustees' approval of the Governor's California Office of Emergency Services (CalOES) Resolution No. 118-19/20, Designation of Applicant's Agency Resolution for Non-State Agencies - Disaster Recovery / COVID-19 and Others. This Resolution will authorize designated positions to apply for public assistance and recovery funding on behalf of our District for a three-year period. The proposed Resolution would designate the Superintendent or Deputy Superintendent or Assistant Superintendent of Business Services as agents who can apply for possible reimbursement.

Shall our Board approve this Resolution, staff will submit the necessary documents to CalOES as required for reimbursement requests. Over the coming months, staff will continue to monitor and apply for any reimbursement funding opportunities to recover costs incurred throughout the COVID-19 emergency.
Fiscal Impact There is no immediate financial impact associated with approving the Resolution. However, approval of this Resolution is required for the District to obtain certain reimbursement costs from FEMA and the State relating to the current COVID-19 emergency, as well as any future disasters over the next three years.
Superintendent's Recommendation: Adopt, by roll call, Resolution No. 118-19/20, Designation of Applicant's Agent Resolution for Non-State Agencies - Disaster Recovery / COVID-19 and Others.
