Board Bill Number 134 | Session 2020-2021

Covid-19 Response Grant for Board of Elections

Board Bill

This Board Bill authorizes the Board of Elections to accept the Center for Tech and Civic Life (the "CTCL") Covid-19 Response Grant of $1,034,200.00 to provide financial assistance to local election officials ("LEOs") for expenses incurred between June 15, 2020 and December 31, 2020, associated with the safe administration of election responsibilities, including safe election day administration; poll worker recruitment, training and safety efforts; voter education and outreach for safe voting policies and procedures; and expanding and maintaining early in-person voting sites and expedited and improved vote-by-mail ballot processing. The grant limits reimbursement to expenses incurred between June 15 and December 31, 2020, in accordance with an assessment called "Safe Voting Plan" prepared by the STL BEC. The grant precludes supplanting previously appropriated funds to BEC or the reduction in budgeted funds to the BEC during the term of this grant unless CTCL grant funds are to be returned.
