Title
Approving the carryover of CDBG, HOME and other funds, and the extension of previously authorized funds within the Community Development program budget.

Body
BACKGROUND

The CDBG Committee has traditionally requested Council approval to “carry over” previously authorized funds for certain Community Development Division (CDD) projects. Typically, this annual request has identified:

? selected capital projects with unforeseen delays in project development;

? programs that have encountered some difficulty beyond their control, or which face unusual circumstances; and

? programs or projects for which funds are not yet 100% encumbered via written agreement.

Specifically, the CDBG Committee has identified the following previously authorized CDD projects and programs that meet one or more of the above criteria, and recommends their extension into 2016:

? Home-Buy the American Dream (HBAD) loan program [CDBG, HOME, HCRI and City funds]

? Common Wealth Development (CWD) Rental Housing Development [HOME and CDBG funds]

? Community Development Authority (CDA) Truax Park Phase 2 Permanent Supportive Housing [HOME and AHTF funds]

? Madison Area Community Land Trust (CLT) Housing Acquisition and Acquisition/Rehab [CDBG funds]

? Wisconsin Partnership for Housing Development (WPHD) Lease-to-Purchase Housing Development and NSP Homeownership [HOME, Match and NSP funds]

? 2015-2016 Emerson East / Eken Park / Yahara neighborhood revitalization projects, which are yet to be selected by the EEEPY Neighborhood Plan Steering Committee [CDBG funds]
