The agreement is an inter-county adjustment of allocated funds and releases $75,000 from Gallia County Title XX Funds to Clermont County and agrees to accept $75,000 in Income Maintenance Control Funds (IMCF) Allocation from Clermont County.
The need for this resolution comes from a decrease in Gallia County’s IMCF allocations, which placed the available resources below actual expenditures, along with an increase in caseloads as well as increases in basic operating costs that outweigh cost saving measures implemented thus far in IMCF Allocations resulting in projected expenditures remaining above estimated resources. Accepting the IMCF’s from Clermont County should help reduce the projected deficit in the IMCF.
