Fiscal Note
The proposed resolution authorizes the allocation of $120,000 to The Mellowhood Foundation, Inc. as a purchase of service contract for expenses incurred in the execution of the Safe Passages Program on Madison’s southwest side. Funding for the contract is provided by the USDOJ Community Building Crime Response: Our Neighborhood-A Safe and Beautiful Place grant. The original grant was awarded and accepted by adopted RES-17-00844 (File 49016) in 2017 as the USDOJ Byrne Criminal Justice Innovation Implementation grant and totaled $850,000. The grant is for two years to address crime and socio-economic drivers of crime within the Raymond Road Corridor.

The Community Development Division (CDD) received two proposals, totaling $213,159, in response to a request for proposals (RFP) process. The RFP responses were reviewed by CDD and grant staff in consultation with the CBCR Advisory Team and volunteer reviewers consisting of 10 residents of the target area and three community stakeholders. The original grant 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.
