Title
Authorizing an amendment to the loan agreement of previously allocated HOME funds to Movin' Out Inc. for the provision of affordable rental housing.
Body
Movin' Out, Inc. has an accepted offer to purchase 11 units of affordable rental housing at Harbor House Condominiums using Council authorized HOME funds of up to $200,000 (previously authorized through the 2009 and 2010 operating budgets).

WHEREAS, the successful completion of this project will add to the permanent, accessible, and affordable rental housing stock which is in high demand for low-income people with disabilities; and

WHEREAS, the proposed amendments to the loan a...
