This is a receivable to the Health Services Agency from The Paskenta Band of Nomlaki Indians in the maximum amount of $108,377.61 for the term 4/1/18 - 12/31/18. The payment will be made with funds from the Promise Neighborhood Grant awarded to the Nomlaki Tribe in FY 2016.


a)              AGREEMENT - Request approval and authorization for the Executive Director to sign the agreement with the Paskenta Band of Nomlaki Indians for the purpose of assisting with Promise Neighborhood Grant activities for the rates as listed in Exhibit “B” with maximum compensation not to exceed $108,377.61, effective 4/1/18 through 12/31/18

(Miscellaneous Agreement #2018-112)


The grant award for the Everett Freeman Promise Neighborhood Initiative is in year two of the five year program. The award is funded annually with federal appropriations in the total amount of $14,657,240. The vision of the program is that all children and youth growing up in "Promise Neighborhoods" have access to great schools and strong systems of family and community support that will prepare them to attain an excellent education and successfully transition to college and a career. Through this program, the Health Services Agency has been dedicating a1.0 FTE (full-time equivalent) Family Support Worker, and a 0.5 FTE Public Health Nurse who work with qualified high-need families of Tehama County designated by the Health Services Agency or Promise Neighborhood staff.


In year two, Promise Neighborhood has developed a specific outcome to determine the program's success and the direction of future allotment of grant funds. By November 30, 2018, 80% of families participating in the Tehama Healthy Families America program in the Promise Neighborhood target area with children over 6 months of age will demonstrate age appropriate development based on the most recent Ages and Stages Questionnaire, Third Edition (ASQ-3).


It should be noted that the tribe's obligation to pay the county is contingent upon receiving the grant funds each year.  Should federal appropriations not continue next year, the department would discontinue contracting for these services.  This agreement contains language regarding arbitration and sovereign immunity that has been previously negotiated between the tribe and the county.  The agreement also requires the Health Services Agency to comply with terms and conditions of the federal grant from the Department of Education which the department is familiar with and able to do.
