II. Financial Report and Expenses/Match Update:

Yadira Vasquez provided the financial report update for the NCCDD. She presented a new graphic presentation for the current and projected federal budgets and expenses. The members found the visuals contained in the report to be useful in helping show the major budget categories over multiple fiscal years. Yadira will include this report going forward for Executive Committee and Council meetings. There was discussion on the 2016-2019 FFY balances and initiative expenditures. There is projected to be $191,016 available between FFYs 2017 and 2019 for new initiatives.

The members reviewed the initiative report and noted that there were no match issues needing attention. Alex asked the members if there were any other questions or comments. Nessie asked about the impact to the NCCDD with the current federal shutdown. Chris advised the committee that we will not be impacted at this time and do have a plan in place if there is a prolonged shutdown. He also stated that we will be making contingency plans for at least a 5% reduction in the projected FFY 2019 award (beginning October 1, 2018). There were no further questions.

III. Council Meeting/Member Survey or Agenda Review

Chris Egan reviewed the draft agenda for the February Council meeting. Aldea and Cheryl Powell will be leading the Member Development Activity, with staff support, at the beginning of the day on Thursday. He reviewed the Thursday morning presentations and the afternoon initiative/RFA updates that will lead into the afternoon committee meetings. Regarding the RFA’s that are scheduled for approval to be released, he said that we will word the motions to include that initial deadlines for receipt of applications may be extended if needed.
Friday’s agenda was reviewed with no updates or changes.
