PROPOSED INTERGOVERNMENTAL AGREEMENT

 

Department:  Planning and Development  

 

Other Part(ies):  The Town of Cicero 

 

Request:  Approve an Intergovernmental Agreement between Cook County and the Town of Cicero 

 

Goods or Services: The Cook County Department of Planning and Development will administer the Town of Cicero’s Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) in the amount of $135,154.00 on the Town’s behalf, providing critical services to homeless individuals and those at risk of becoming homeless in the Town of Cicero. 

 

Agreement Number(s):  N/A  

 

Agreement Period:  The agreement is effective as of 1/1/2017 and will remain in effect until the ESG funds are expended. This is a one-time agreement, but Cook County and the Town of Cicero may execute similar agreements in the future for additional ESG funds received by the Town Cicero. 

 

Fiscal Impact:  None 

 

Accounts:  N/A 

 

Summary: The Town of Cicero is receiving ESG funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for the first time. Cicero has asked the County to administer this new funding on the Town of Cicero’s behalf. Cook County has been a long-time recipient of its own ESG funding from HUD and has successfully administered the ESG program throughout suburban Cook County, including in the west suburban area that includes Cicero. Cook County will utilize a small portion of Cicero’s ESG funding to cover its administrative costs, but the vast majority of the funding will be provided via subgrant to Housing Forward, an agency with a strong track record of utilizing ESG funding in the western suburbs.
