Subject:                      Use of District-Discretionary Measure K Funds - Supervisorial District 5




Measure K: Approve an Appropriation Transfer Request (ATR) transferring Measure K funds, not to exceed $60,000 to Aging and Adult Services for the Daly City Peninsula Partnership’s Healthy Aging Response Team, and not to exceed $40,000 to Behavioral Health and Recovery Services for the Daly City Peninsula Partnership’s Our Second Home.



Measure K is the half-cent general sales tax initially approved by San Mateo County voters in November 2012 and extended in November 2016 for a total of thirty years.


On February 12, 2019, the Board of Supervisors (Board) held a study session on Measure K expenditures and anticipated revenue for fiscal years (FY) 2019-21. The Board-appointed Measure K sub-committee, consisting of Supervisor Pine and Supervisor Canepa, convened the study session to, among other things, work with staff to facilitate the Board’s development of Measure K priorities and continuing initiatives for FY 2019-21. The Board approved $3.75 million in one-time loans or grants each fiscal year for FY 2019-21, divided equally among the five supervisorial districts, for district-discretionary needs and projects. District Five has submitted a request to use its district-discretionary Measure K funds as shown below and described in the Project Summary section of this memorandum:




District Five (Supervisor David Canepa) - Daly City Peninsula Partnership Collaborative: Safety Net and Self-Sufficiency Supportive Services for Families and Seniors



This item is consistent with the criteria for district-discretionary Measure K funds approved by the Board in December 2018.


This is a request to authorize a transfer of district-discretionary funds to Aging and Adult Services and Behavioral Health and Recovery Services, to augment existing agreements with the Daly City Peninsula Partnership Collaborative (Daly City Partnership or DCP) for safety net and self-sufficiency supportive services for families and seniors. The proposed funds will contribute toward providing low-income seniors with access to nutritious food and other support services ($60,000, to be managed by Aging and Adult Services), and to assess and improve the mental health of underserved and/or underinsured children, families, and seniors ($40,000 to be managed by Behavioral Health and Recovery Services).

Daly City Partnership is a 501(c)(3) community-based organization whose mission is to guide collaborative efforts and connect the community to services that promote well-being.

Since 2016, the County has allocated $146,000 in Measure A & K funds to Daly City Partnership for the Healthy Aging Response Team (HART) “Friendly Visiting and Meals Express” program.  The HART program supports isolated seniors in the community with a home visiting “Care Coordinator” (social worker) who assesses elders for safety, emotional support, and healthy meals, including enrollment in Measure K subsidized home delivered Meals on Wheels (MOW) or Brown Bag food delivery.  Current budget capacity supports only six low-income seniors with MOW year-round.  DCP is requesting an additional $60,000 in Measure K Funds to support a vastly increased number of low-income, housebound North County seniors in accessing home delivered meals, and to provide seed money for DCP to develop a “Village” concept in Daly City. DCP’s concept for the Daly City Village consists of a cadre of community volunteers and social work interns who can support seniors with in-home handyman services, a Lyft concierge ride program, and driving and escort services for doctor’s appointments and grocery shopping assistance. Transportation, followed by affordable housing, was identified as the top priority during the Winter/Spring 2019 listening campaign conducted by the Daly City Age Friendly Cities focus group study. These two priorities also remain the top two requests from the hundreds of callers utilizing the HART team’s information and assistance phone line.


Since 2001, Our Second Home (OSH) has been the premier provider of Early Childhood resources for the North Peninsula.  Created with support from First 5 of San Mateo County, Packard Foundation, and over 20 individual and foundation grants, Our Second Home’s Family Resource Center provides health services, educational support, onsite care coordination, free family therapy, developmental assessments, parenting classes, and supportive activities for families, early childhood educators, and caregivers with children aged zero through nineteen.  OSH also provides a network of support programs “in house’” through partnerships with Peninsula Family Services (on-site State preschool), Libre -SMC Legal Aid Society (counseling for low income / immigrant families), StarVista (bi-lingual playgroups), Second Harvest Food Bank (CALFresh enrollment and weekly food distribution), and Speech Goals/Golden Gate Regional Center (speech & learning delay programs), and information about and referrals to multiple community resources.  OSH regularly offers weekly English as a Second Language classes, Parent Education Programs (10 week Parent Project “Mana”, Monthly “Journey to Empowerment”, “Play to Grow”, “Daddy and Me”, “Parent Leadership”, “Positive Discipline”), and nutrition (‘Healthy Cooking”) and exercise programs (Yoga) to help improve parents’ cognitive, emotional, and physical development.


DCP is currently seeking $40,000 in Measure K funds to scaffold and develop a Support Group for Parents of Children with Special Needs, among other family support programs.  Although OSH frequently partners with Community Gatepath in Burlingame, no group of this kind that supports both learning delays (autism spectrum, Down’s syndrome) and physical handicaps, can be found in the Daly City area.  This group also will provide a needed support program for the school district partners, whose parents struggle with the joys and challenges of raising a learning delayed child. Funds from Measure K would also ensure that uninsured and underinsured individuals receive family and children’s clinical sessions from DCP. 


The table below describes how DCP proposes to use the Measure K funds in each of the two programs:
