3. Headstart Non-Federal Match Decision
Mr. Shortbull gave an update on where OLC is at with in attempting to obtain a Head Start grant. He presented a draft letter to Ms. Georgeline Sparks on the additional information that the Headstart Bureau needs from OLC before a grant award. (See Attachment A) Mr. Shortbull stated his concerns about the information from Ms. Sparks that OLC should not ask for an upfront waiver of a percentage of the non-federal match. Although Ms. Sparks has stated that there is little likelihood that OLC will not receive the waiver, there is a risk that OLC will incur some OLC funds if the waiver is not granted. Mr. Shortbull next presented a letter from the OLC Attorney on the Head Start requirements on a waiver of the non-federal match. (See Attachment B) Mr. Shortbull stated that the issue that needed to be decided by the Board is whether OLC should keep on trying to get a Head Start grant in light of the situation on the non-federal match.
Mr. Gerald One Feather made the motion to continue to go after the Headstart Grant with an understanding that OLC will do everything it can to obtain the maximum amount of non-federal matching during the grant period. Mr. Dennis Brewer seconded the motion.
