Staff Summary: Background ITEM J-1) RESOLUTION PUBLIC HEARING CDBG Grant Award 1515 NW 167 Street, Building 5 Suite 200 Miami Gardens, Florida 33169 At the February 28, 2011 meeting, City Council approved resolution number 2011‐28‐1421 which authorized the City Manager and City Attorney to take any and all steps necessary to create the Greater Miami Gardens Chamber of Commerce. The resolution also approved the funding source (Community Development Block Grant Funds) and the proposed amount of $120,000 to provide for operational financing. Furthermore, at the May 11, 2011 meeting, City Council approved resolution number 2011‐84‐1477 which amended resolution number 2011‐28‐1421, clarifying that the use of the CDBG funding that would be allocated to the chamber would only be for the expressed purpose of carrying out activities eligible under CDBG regulations that will benefit low‐to‐moderate income persons, or businesses located in qualified census tracts. Current Situation As a 501(c)6 entity, the Greater Miami Gardens Chamber of Commerce (GMGCC) is eligible to enter into an agreement with the City as a sub‐recipient of CDBG Funds. It should be noted that no CDBG funding has yet been awarded. As the previous agenda memo proposed, the GMGCC needed to submit a proposal that outlined the specific activities it will carry out along with a budget for said activities; at which time City Staff would bring the item back to Council to request an allocation of CDBG funds be awarded to the GMGCC. The GMGCC has submitted such a proposal and City Staff is now recommending that an award of $120,000 of CDBG 2010‐2011 funds be awarded to the GMGCC. A resolution is required in order to award CDBG funds to the Greater Miami Gardens Chamber of Commerce. Upon Council’s approval of staff’s recommendation, a sub‐recipient agreement will be executed between the City and the GMGCC. Proposed Action: That the City Council approve the proposed resolution. Attachment: • GMGCC proposal • Sub‐recipient Agreement
