B. Authorization for the CEO to submit an application to the California Relief Grant Program
This State funding is available to nonprofits which have been negatively impacted by COVID 19. The eligible amount that RAP could apply for is $25,000 and the deadline to apply is January 13. RAP has incurred additional expenses for supplies (disinfectant) and repairs (plexiglass), additional cleaning and purchase of laptops for staff to work remotely.  The approximate amount that we could apply for would be $4725 – $15,000.  If the Executive Committee is in favor of RAP applying for this grant, it will need to authorize the CEO to apply and have their action ratified by the full Board at their next meeting.

  Motion:         Second:         Approved:           Opposed:     Abstention Name(s): 

C. Authorization for the CEO to submit an application to the Small Business Administration Paycheck Protection Plan Round 2.
     Round 2 is anticipated to open up in the next 2 weeks and will likely end March 31 or when funds are fully expended.   RAP applied for and received funding from the First Round.  The CEO would like direction as to whether we should apply for Round 2.

E. Resolution To Delegate Authority to CEO to Carry Out the Business of the Organization.
The County recently requested that RAP provide documentation for the CEO’s authority to sign on behalf of RAP for an agreement.  I was able to provide sufficient documentation to satisfy the County on this occasion, but it became apparent to me that it may be a good idea to create a Resolution for the future.    (attach. 3)
