Title
Health and Human Services Agency recommending the Board approve and authorize the Chair to sign a Budget Transfer Request for FY 2019-20 to increase State Revenues, and appropriations for Support and Care of Persons, in the amount of $9,000, due to receipt of higher than anticipated pass-through funding from California Department of Housing and Community Development for Mother Load Rehabilitation Enterprises. (4/5 vote required)

FUNDING: California Department of Housing and Community Development.
Body
DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND:
Effective May 1981, the County of El Dorado executed an Agreement with the California Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) to act as fiscal intermediary between DHCD and Mother Lode Rehabilitation Enterprises (M.O.R.E.) to process contractual documents for the Rental Housing Construction Program which provides rental subsidies for the M.O.R.E. housing project.

Since that time, the County has processed 42 amendments as a mechanism for the State to pay M.O.R.E. The State of California paid M.O.R.E. directly up until July of 2019, at which time the State notified the Health and Human Services Agency (HHSA) that effective fiscal year (FY) 2019-20 the funding would be received by the County and the County would be responsible to pay M.O.R.E. directly.

In February 2019 when HHSA developed the FY 2019-20 budget, Amendment 42 from DHCD had not yet been received, so the budget was estimated based on prior year(s) allocations. Upon receipt of the fully executed Amendment 42, the actual amount was higher than budgeted, resulting in the need for a budget amendment.


ALTERNATIVES:
Should the Board decline to approve this Budget Transfer Request, HHSA would be unable to fully pass through the funding received on behalf of M.O.R.E.
