Fiscal Note
The proposed resolution authorizes allocating $210,850 to four community agency contracts to support youth mentoring opportunities on Madison’s South West side. Funding for the contracts is provided by the USDOJ Community Building Crime Response: Our Neighborhood-A Safe and Beautiful Place grant. The grant is for two years to address crime and socio-economic drivers of crime within the Raymond Road Corridor.

The original grant, totaling $850,000, was awarded and accepted by the City in 2017 (File 49016) in 2017 as the USDOJ Byrne Criminal Justice Innovation Implementation grant. Grant funding was accepted by MPD and deposited into the grants fund. The grant funding and budget authority will remain with MPD and the community agency contracts will be managed by CDD. No additional City appropriation is required.

The Community Development Division (CDD) received 11 program proposals from 10 agencies in response to a request for proposals (RFP) process totaling $709,329. Two group mentoring programs, totaling $100,850, and two individual mentoring programs, totaling $110,000, are being recommended by this resolution. The RFP responses were reviewed by a group consisting of 10 residents from the target area and staff from the Madison Police Department (MPD), CDD, and Madison Public Library.
