Title
Chief Administrative Office providing clarification of new Request for Proposal options for Title III funding as previously directed by the Board on June 2, 2009.
Body
Background: On February 10, 2009 the Board directed that the entire FY 2008-09 Title III allocation be distributed according to a Request for Proposal (RFP) process. The FY 2008-09 allocation is $272,063. The Board further directed that the FY 2009-10 allocation be directed to the Sheriff for Search and Rescue.

In addition, on March 24, 2009 the Board amended the Public Health, Safety and Noise Element of the General Plan to incorporate the LHMP. The LHMP includes the El Dorado County Wildfire Protection Plan.
