Title
Substitute resolution relative to acceptance of the Public Health Crisis Response grant from the Centers for Disease Control.

Analysis
Resolution authorizing the Health Department to accept a 5-year award for as-needed public health emergency funding from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC).

It also sets aside $50,000 for the Health Department to begin immediate emergency response spending if needed once the Notice of Award is received, at which point an amended grant budget and resolution will be submitted.
