Memorandum
This resolution seeks Council approval for an Agreement with Avalon Housing for case management services for 15th Judicial District defendants who are participants in the Court's Mental Health Court program. These services are funded by a grant from the Supreme Court of Michigan State Court Administrative Office for Grant Fiscal Year 2019, and without regard to City Fiscal Year.

Budget/Fiscal Impact: Services provided under this Agreement will be funded through the State Court Administrative Office Michigan Mental Health Court Grant Program (SCAO-MMHCGP) ($45,801.00). The Grant award was accepted and contract approved by City Council on October 15, 2018 (R-18-406).

Approval of a ten percent (10%) contingency amount is also requested to allow the Court to increase services should additional funds become available for case management services through an approved SCAO grant program budget amendment [e.g., approved grant project line-item budget adjustments within the total program award.]
