Additional Analysis:
• Permanent projects are funded through the HTF’s biannual competitive process and are reported as “units.”

• Off-farm, or community-based, seasonal projects are funded through the HTF, but applications are accepted on an open-door
  basis. Projects are reported as “beds.”

• On-farm seasonal projects are funded through a separate program for agricultural employers. Projects are funded on an
  ongoing basis and are reported as “beds.”


For the 09-11 Biennium, the Legislature appropriated $7 million within the HTF specifically for community-based farmworker
housing projects. Those funds were fully obligated by the end of Q1. The on-farm seasonal housing program was funded at
$3.5 million. Those funds are expected to be fully obligated by the end of Q4.

Additional Analysis:
 Targets have been revised based on a better understanding of HUD requirements. The number of total households served
(grant-to-date) is based on the Quarterly Performance Report (QPR) submitted to HUD.

Please note that total households served (grant-to-date) is unduplicated. For example, a household may have received financial
assistance twice (to-date) and may also have received stabilization services five times (to-date). That household is only reported
once in the total.

Additionally, within an activity (i.e. rental assistance) the number of households served is unduplicated. For example, a
household may have received rental assistance a couple of times (to-date). That household is only reported once as receiving
rental assistance.

Lastly, households can be reported in more than one activity area and so the number of households in each activity area may
not be added together because it will result in a duplicated count and will not match the total number of households served
(unduplicated).

Additional Analysis:
As projected, stalled projects have decreased and have gone from 21 to 10 to 5 remaining . This is mostly due to the Housing
Finance Commission, ARRA funding becoming available and funding the gaps created from the equity market. The current
economic environment will have substantial impact on the amount of units that are placed in service. This will not be evident for
at least another year, as projects take an average of two years to place in service, so many of the projects that are coming on
line currently have had financing and bids in place. Many of the current projects we just funded are having considerable
problems with completing their financing, which will impact our unit production in the future.

Additional Analysis:

The O&M revenue stream is based on a county-wide document recording fee. It is expected that this revenue stream will ebb and
flow with the economic environment as it has been doing over the past two years. There is tension in managing the current
resources caused by the continuing need to make new awards to projects through the HTF funding rounds, requests to increase
dollars already granted when projects experience operating budget shortfalls, and maintaining a strategic reserve to ensure the
necessary resources are available to meet the ongoing years of commitment. In an effort to mitigate some of this tension,
stakeholder input was solicited and their recommendations have informed program staff to take the following steps:

Changes to New Award Commitments
•Capped the total yearly available dollar amount for new funding awards to $150,000;
•Capped new awards per project at $50,000;
•Capped one-time awards through the Asset Management workout process to a total available funding of $100,000 yearly;
•No new O&M funding awards were made in Q8 and no new commitments will be made through the HTF funding rounds or Asset
Management workout process between 1/1/2010 and 6/30/2010.

Changes to Renewal Grants
•Made no grant renewal amount increases to the 2010-2011 grant agreements regardless of operating budget shortfalls;
•Reduced all Buy-Down grants by 20% for the 2010/11 fiscal year.
•All O&M grants starting 1/1/2010 will be on the State’s fiscal calendar.

Program staff already follows OFM guidelines in establishing a strategic reserve equal to approximately 3 months of expenditures,
which at this time is at the $1.13 million dollar level.
