Fiscal Note
The proposed resolution authorizes approximately $4 million to 11 community non-profit agencies to help finance the provision of an array of homeless services beginning in 2022. As shown in the attachment, the Community Development Division (CDD) staff recommend funding approximately $1.84 million in one-time funding and $2.08 million of recurring funding. Funding for the total allocation is included in the 2022 Executive Operating Budget and will draw upon the General Fund, CDBG fund, CARES Act funding, and Emergency Rental Assistance funds. The $2.08 million of recommended recurring funding will likely be largely funded by the continuation of the $2.2 million of General Fund support in CDD’s Affordable Housing service, subject to Common Council approval and future operating budgets. No additional City appropriation is required with the approval the proposed resolution.
