Explanation
Background: This ordinance authorizes the appropriation of $300,000.00 of the anticipated FY 2020 HOME Investment Partnerships Program funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for the Department of Development’s Housing Division. These funds are for a portion of the 2020 personnel expenses and are a portion of the HOME Administration monies included in the grant.

Additional ordinances will be forthcoming in 2020 to appropriate and encumber funds for the Department’s Affordable Housing Opportunity program, and once the allocation amount is received from HUD, a request will be made to appropriate the balance of the HOME Administration funds for personnel expenses for the remainder of the year.

This legislation represents appropriation for the HOME portion of the 2020 Action Plan, per Ordinance 2162-2019.

Emergency action is requested in order to ensure personnel funds are in place for 2020.
