Fiscal Note
Resolution RES-16-00328 (File ID 42488) authorized the City to submit an application on behalf of the Madison/Dane County Continuum of Care requesting 2016-2017 ETH grant funds to the Wisconsin Department of Administration, Division of Energy, Housing and Community Resources. An award letter from the State, dated June 14, 2016, announced a total award of $547,117, including “bonus” funding. This amount will cover costs associated with local programs serving individuals and families who are homeless or at-risk of homelessness, as well as costs of related grant administration. Of the total award, $11,667 will be retained by the City to defray costs associated with administering the grant. Up to $500,000 in ETH grant revenues and commensurate expenditures was authorized in the Community Development Division’s 2016 Adopted Operating Budget. Since the actual award exceeds the amount budgeted for 2016, the CDD Operating Budget requires an amendment to reflect an additional $47,117 in grant revenues and commensurate expenditures.
