HEARING REQUIRED:  No Hearing Required

 

SUMMARY:

                                          

The Cranston-Gonzalez National Affordable Housing Act of 1990 authorized contiguous local jurisdictions to enter a consortium for purposes of receiving funds and administering activities allowed under the HOME Investment Partnerships Program’s regulations.  The City of Pensacola and Escambia County entered into the HOME Consortium Agreement on June 22, 1999, which was extended by mutual agreement in May 2017, to assist with the rehabilitation of distressed housing within the City.  HOME funds are used to support the Substantial Housing Rehabilitation/Reconstruction program.  This program allows for major renovation or reconstruction of a substandard home.

 

The City of Pensacola is responsible for assuring compliance with all regulatory, statutory, and administrative requirements associated with HOME activities undertaken in the City.  Escambia County, as the fiscal agent, provides limited administrative authority for the program’s implementation and maintains final approval authority with regard to the expenditure of HOME activity and administrative funds.  Both jurisdictions cooperatively develop program policies, procedures, and actions required to implement the program.

 

PRIOR ACTION:                     

 

N/A

 

FUNDING:                     

 

     Budget:                     $194,100

 

      Actual:                     $152,140

 

FINANCIAL IMPACT:

                     

The difference in the budgeted and actual funding levels is due to the Housing Division not receiving the notice of funding commitment from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development until after the City budget was adopted.  The decrease in revenue will be included on the unencumbered carryover resolution.
