Body

DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND:

On March 13, 2020, the El Dorado County Public Housing Authority received notification from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) that the project application for funding for the Fiscal Year 2019 Continuum of Care (CoC) Program was selected for funding of $10,336. This funding carries with it, a required match of $2,584, which will be met with other grant  funds. The proposal submitted for this funding specifically solicited funds for the purpose of funding technical assistance, training, and planning for the CoC.

 

Because of conditions placed on the funding by HUD, the funding agreement for this award was not received by the County until August 27, 2020, at which time staff immediately began preparing for the next appropriate Board agenda.

 

These funds will be used to support the El Dorado Opportunity Knocks CoC, in improving the CoC's strategic planning efforts as well as building the knowledge and administrative capacity of its members. The El Dorado County Public Housing Authority serves as the Collaborative Applicant for the CoC, as designated by the CoC, as well as the Administrative Entity, as a part of the Health and Human Services Agency. In this role, the Public Housing Authority, through HHSA, submitted the application for funding on behalf of and in support of the CoC.

 

Health and Human Services Agency (HHSA) is recommending the Board approve the Chair to sign the attached Budget Transfer Request (BTR) (Attachment A) to increase revenue and appropriations by $10,336. 

 

ALTERNATIVES:

Disapproval of this Budget Transfer Request will delay the ability of HHSA to accept and begin using this funding.

 

OTHER DEPARTMENT / AGENCY INVOLVEMENT:

CAO RECOMMENDATION:
