The evaluation criterion is based on proposal content (eligibility profile –20 points,

proposal content and adherence to national objectives (as mentioned earlier in this
RFP). Subsequent to the committee review, proposals will be forwarded to the
Honorable Members of the City Council for review and funding determinations.

PROJECT PERFORMANCE ASSESSMENT
Proposing agencies are responsible for the achievement of stated goals and objectives
to meet the City of Inglewood priorities. Therefore, assessment is vital in determining
whether or not the project has met stated goals and objectives. The following is a
description of items to be assessed:

   1. Goals: Project assessment will determine whether the intent or purpose of the
      project was achieved.

   2. Objectives: The project will be assessed to determine if stated objectives were
      clearly defined, measurable, and if they were met.

   3. Units of Service: The units of service provided (i.e. the number of hours of
      counseling, children/families served, houses rehabilitated, etc). The performance
      assessment will verify documented evidence and on-site operation of stated units
      of service.

   4. Performance Measures: Performance measures are quantitative and qualitative
      indicators that determine whether a project has achieved stated goals and
      objectives. The project assessment will include reviewing such performance
      measures.

   5. Performance Schedule: This schedule identifies the major milestones for
      implementing the project. It provides the anticipated dates when major activities
      and events will take place during the program year. The performance assessment
      will focus on the timely implementation of the major project related activities.

   6. Expected Outcomes: Results and benefits of the project will be assessed to
      determine if it met expected results.

     cash, or volunteer services) equal to 100% of the grant-funding request.

     In-kind contributions must have a specific dollar value established in accordance
     with generally accepted accounting principles. The basis of determining the value
     for personal services and donated materials and supplies must be identified.
     Volunteer services may be counted if the service is an integral and necessary
     part of the project. To determine in-kind volunteer contributions, use the
     estimated amount of what a paid worker would earn doing the same type of work
     (verification documentation may be requested).

     Invoices submitted to the City must correspond to categories and amounts
     indicated in the budget.

The Fair Market Rents (FMR) for unit sizes larger than four bedrooms are calculated by
adding 15 percent to the four bedroom FMR, for each extra bedroom. For example, the
FMR for a five bedroom unit is 1.15 times the four bedroom FMR, and the FMR for a six
bedroom unit is 1.30 times the four bedroom FMR. For single-room occupancy units,
FMRs are 0.75 times the zero bedroom (efficiency) FMR.

              2. Be encouraged to apply
              3. Have equal opportunity to own/rent their own units.

preference. The City of Inglewood’s affirmative fair housing marketing procedures are

           •   Use of Language-Specific Media: HOME-assisted housing opportunities
               should be advertised in Spanish-language publications such as Inglewood
               Today, La Opinión or El Sol de California.

        G. Outreach to Section 8/Assisted Housing Clients: The City of Inglewood will
           provide targeted outreach to Section 8 participants whom are eligible to
           qualify for the Section 8 Homeownership Conversion Program.

4. MAINTENANCE OF RECORDS

     The City shall request that nonprofit organizations assisted under the CDBG and/or
     HOME Programs maintain the following records:

           •   Written description of how vacancies were filled
           •   Copies of newspaper advertisements and flyers or other printed material
               used
           •   Copies of mailing lists to organizations that were sent flyers and other
               material
           •   Dates and locations where flyers were delivered or posted
           •   Racial/ethnic and gender characteristics of tenants and applicants

     The City shall, on an annual basis as part of its annual performance report to HUD,
     review compliance with the City’s Affirmative Fair Housing Marketing Plan and
     consult with the property owners about any required improvements to fair housing
     marketing programs.

     The City will examine whether or not persons from a variety of racial and ethnic
     groups in the City applied for or became tenants of units that were affirmatively
     marketed. If the City finds that a variety of ethnic groups are represented, the City
     will assume that the affirmative marketing procedures were effective. If one or more
     groups are not represented consistent with their representation in the City or there is
     an overrepresentation of particular groups, the City will review its procedures to
     determine what changes, if any, might be made to make the affirmative marketing
     efforts more effective.

5.      TENANT SELECTION PROCESS

        A. Nonprofit agencies are required to have a written tenant selection policy; this
           document must be on file with the City.

        B. Documentation of Inglewood residency shall be made by providing at least
           two pieces of acceptable evidence, including but not limited to the following
           items and other appropriate evidence subject to City approval:

            and the number of hours of employment.

        •   Disability Check Stub
        •   Veteran’s Assistance Check Stub

6.   ASSESSMENT OF AFFIRMATIVE MARKETING EFFORTS:

     Annually, City CDBG staff will assess the housing provider’s affirmative
     marketing efforts and determine if the Plan is being implemented, what outreach
     efforts have been made and identify any corrective action that may be necessary.

     A. Timing of Assessment Activities: The City shall complete a written
        assessment of Affirmative Fair Marketing efforts no later than November 15th
        of every year and report results in the annual performance report to HUD. The
        assessment will cover marketing relative to when the units first made
        available for occupancy during the program year. The assessment will be
        made for projects/contracts with five (5) or more CDBG and/or HOME
        assisted units

     B. Basis of Assessment: The City of Inglewood will assess the affirmative
        marketing efforts of the subrecipient by comparing predetermined occupancy
        goals (based upon the area from which potential tenants will come) with
        actual occupancy data that the subrecipient is required to maintain. Outreach
        efforts on the part of the subrecipient will also be evaluated by reviewing
        marketing efforts. Corrective action will be required of project sponsors if
        affirmative marketing requirements are not followed. Failure to adhere to
        Affirmative Marketing requirements will result in a subrecipient being
        prohibited from further funding and participation in the HOME Program.

7.   CORRECTIVE ACTIONS THAT WILL BE TAKEN WHEN AFFIRMATIVE
     MARKETING REQUIREMENTS ARE NOT MET

     The City of Inglewood will take corrective action if it is determined that an agency
     has failed to carry out affirmative marketing efforts as required by the City’s
     agreement. The City, prior to taking any corrective action, will discuss with the
     agency ways to improve affirmative marketing efforts. Initially, the City will put
     the agency on notice and provide a reasonable time period to establish written
     procedures for future use. If an agency, after receiving fair warning and an
     opportunity to correct identified deficiencies, continues to neglect the
     responsibilities made incumbent by the terms of the participation agreement, the
     City will consider the following action:

     Declaring the nonprofit agency non-responsive and disqualified from any further
     assistance made available under the HOME/CDBG Programs.
