Explanation
Background: This ordinance authorizes the appropriation of $101,169.03 of the anticipated FY 2019 HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME) funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for the Department of Development’s Housing Division. These funds are the remaining portion of the anticipated 2019 grant funds for personnel expenses and are the remaining portion of the HOME Administration monies included in the grant. Ordinance 3131-2018 authorized $300,000 of the anticipated $401,169.03 available from the 2019 grant. This ordinance authorized the remainder.

The City has been notified of the 2019 grant amount, but has not yet received the grant agreement. Due to vacancies in the local HUD field office, the grant agreement may be delayed until later this year as documents will need to be signed by appropriate officials at the HUD office in Washington, D.C.

This legislation represents appropriation for the HOME portion of the 2019 Action Plan, per Ordinance 2776-2018.

Emergency action is requested in order to ensure personnel funds are in place for 2019.

Fiscal Impact: Funds in the amount of $101,169.03 for this appropriation are supported by the anticipated HOME entitlement award from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and are allocated from the HOME Administrative monies set aside within the 2019 HOME Grant.
