Yolo County and Yocha Dehe Partner to Fund Emergency Services

The Yolo County Board of Supervisors approved an intergovernmental agreement with our Tribe in June to fund emergency services to the county. The agreement states the Tribe will provide $163,660 in funding for Office of Emergency Services operations for fiscal year 2010-11.

The funds provided by the Tribe will be used to maintain the emergency services manager position. Funding required for additional program staff and operating costs will be matched using a Federal Emergency Management Performance Grant and administrative reimbursement under the Homeland Security Grant Program.
