  The Office of Budget and Management respectfully requests Controlling Board approval to transfer appropriation for multiple state agencies from FY 2020 to FY 2021. This will allow state agencies to continue to use federal funds made available from the Federal Coronavirus Relief Fund under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, to support state efforts to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.  
  The CARES Act allows states to use federal funding from the Federal Coronavirus Relief Fund for necessary expenditures incurred by the state due to the public health emergency caused by the COVID-19 pandemic incurred from March 1 to December 30, 2020, that were not authorized as part of the state budget. Under the direction of Governor DeWine, the state has been working across multiple agencies to support Ohio's response to the COVID-19 pandemic. This request includes a request to transfer appropriation for the Adjutant General's Department, the Department of Administrative Services, the Ohio Department of Health, and the and Department of Public Safety/Emergency Management Agency for expenditures anticipated for each agency responding to the pandemic through July 13.

The requested transfer amounts represent best estimates for unencumbered, unexpended balances remaining at the end of fiscal year 2020. Additional unencumbered, unexpended amounts may be transferred at a later date as necessary.
