PUBLIC HEARING TO CONSIDER APPROVING RESOLUTION NO. 21-153 OF THE CITY OF CARSON, CALIFORNIA AUTHORIZING THE APPLICATION AND ADOPTION OF THE PERMANENT LOCAL HOUSING ALLOCATION PLAN FOR THE PERMANENT LOCAL HOUSING ALLOCATION PROGRAM

Body
I. SUMMARY

The State of California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) has issued a Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) for the Permanent Local Housing Allocation (PLHA) Program. HCD is authorized to provide up to $304 million to local governments statewide for a variety of housing-related purposes. Carson has been deemed eligible for this non-competitive grant in the amount of approximately $2,488,380 over a five-year period. The application deadline for this program is December 31, 2021. Among the application requirements is the adoption of a resolution by City Council authorizing the submission of the application. Resolution No. 21-153 has been drafted for this purpose (Exhibit No. 1). The language and format of the resolution are consistent with HCD's format.
In addition, HCD requires inclusion of a PLHA Plan as an attachment to the resolution. HCD requires that the draft PLHA Plan be subjected to a public comment period and a public hearing. Accordingly, the draft plan was prepared by staff and has been made available for public review for the required 10-day public comment period. The draft plan includes the following three proposed activities at an even 33.33% funding allocation each:
* First time home buyer program (33.33% Allocation),
* Rehabilitation, and preservation of affordable ownership housing (33.33% Allocation); and
* Assisting persons who are experiencing or at risk of homelessness (33.33% Allocation).
HCD gives cities flexibility to amend the PLHA Plan. Changes can be made to the PLHA plan with proper notice to the community and approval by the City Council and HCD. Any change...
