Adoption of Policies & Procedures for Expending Measure A Funds 150 150 RPOSD

 

In June of 2018, in an effort to distribute Measure A funds while litigation was pending, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, acting as the Board of Directors of RPOSD, authorized the release of Measure A annual allocation funds, including those for the Community-based Park Investment Program, the Neighborhood Parks, Healthy Communities & Urban Greening Program, and Maintenance & Servicing Funds, pending resolution of the appeal. Due to pending litigation, the release of funding for competitive grants was placed on hold, while annual allocation funds were to be released with a clause for repayment if required by the final court ruling.

The implementation of Measure A allowed the 88 cities in the County and the Departments of Beaches and Harbors and Parks and Recreation to begin utilizing their Measure A annual allocation funds for eligible grant projects as well as maintenance and servicing funds for completed RPOSD grant funded projects. It also allowed RPOSD to develop and implement the Measure A TAP to prepare applicants and their project proposals for future competitive grant opportunities and modernize its business processes through procurement and implementation of an online, paperless grants management system and independent special tax calculation system.
