Explanation
BACKGROUND: This ordinance authorizes the appropriation and expenditure of up to $300,000.00 of the 2020 HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME) entitlement grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and to increase the amount of HOME funds supporting the Bretton Woods project, developed by Bretton Woods Senior Housing Limited Partnership.

The agreements have not yet been executed. The total amount of HOME support for this project is $600,000.00
