Consider recommendations regarding the execution of a Fiscal Agent Agreement with the Santa Barbara Foundation (“Foundation”) to implement a microbusiness COVID-19 Relief Grant Program with grant funding from the California Office of Small Business Advocate (CalOSBA), as follows:

 

a) Authorize the County Executive Officer, or designee, to submit a funding application in the amount of $556,119.99, or such other allocation amount that the State of California makes available to the County of Santa Barbara, and execute all certifications, standard forms, and other related documents to the State of California Office of the Small Business Advocate for Round 1 funding from the California Micro-Business COVID-19 Relief Grant program;

 

b) Authorize the County Executive Officer, or designee, to execute an agreement with the Foundation for administration and implementation of a California Micro-Business COVID-19 Relief Grant program in Santa Barbara County, subject to the following conditions:

 

i) The agreement has a total contract amount not to exceed $556,119.99 and provides for an administrative fee for the Foundation not to exceed 20% of the total contract amount;

 

ii) The agreement is in a form substantially similar to the Fiscal Agent Agreement; and

 

iii) The agreement is subject to review and concurrence by Risk Management, Auditor-Controller and County Counsel; and

 

c) Determine that the recommended actions are not the acceptance and approval of a project that is subject to environmental review under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) pursuant to CEQA Guidelines Section 15378(b)(4), finding that the project is a creation of government funding mechanisms or other government fiscal activities, which do not involve any commitment to any specific project which may result in a potentially significant physical impact on the environment.
