INTERLOCAL AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE CITY AND CRA FOR A HOUSING PROPERTY COORDINATOR POSITION

Body

Recommended Action:

Recommendation

 

Approve the Interlocal Agreement between the City and CRA to fund 50% of the actual amount expended for a Housing Property Coordinator position up to $34,500, subject to approval of the City and CRA budgets for Fiscal Year 2018-19.

 

Body

Background:

 

At the CRA Board Workshop meeting, the Board reviewed the proposed FY 2018-19 CRA Budget, which included a request from the City for the CRA to fund 50% of the actual amount expended for a Housing Property Coordinator position, up to $34,500, in the Neighborhood Services Division of the Community Improvement Department. 

 

The City is seeking partial funding from the CRA for the position, as it entails spending 50% of their time on tasks within the CRA boundaries and working on various CRA/City-related affordable housing initiatives such as the review all income eligibility applications from the Delray Beach Community Land Trust (DBCLT) who participate in the first-time homebuyer program as well as Curb Appeal and housing rehabilitation programs. The Housing Property Coordinator is responsible for the following:

 

                     Assisting with the preparation of Federal, State and Local reports including grantee

performance reports for programs administered by the Division;

                     Assisting with Preparation of Annual and Local Housing Assistance Plan;

                     Tracking the revenue and expenditures under federal, state and local programs pursuant to the approved annual plans and applicable regulations governing program funds, policies and procedures established by the City;

                     Monitoring and reviewing Workforce Housing Trust funds ensuring compliance with City's ordinance;

                     Assisting developer /property management in maintaining continued compliance;

                     Responding to customer/property management requests for information on available

housing assistance programs; and

                     Conducting and advising potential homebuyers on mortgage pre-qualification, credit report and other requirements necessary to qualify for homeownership or rehabilitation assistance.

 

The attached Interlocal Agreement provides funding for the position based on the actual cost in an amount not to exceed $34,500, for one year up to and including September 30, 2019. However, the Agreement may be renewed automatically each year, provided that funding for the position is set forth in the City and CRA budgets, and those budgets are approved. The funds will be disbursed quarterly after receipt of the quarterly reports outlining monthly activities and documentation of actual expenditures of payroll & benefits.
