Explanation:

Liberia Economic and Social Development, Inc.

(BAND) to construct twelve (12) affordable townhomes on the site.  The dwelling units will be offered for fee simple purchase to households earning up to eighty percent (80%) of the Area Median Income.

 

In order to proceed with the proposed development, LES approached the City to provide financing. The estimated Total Development Cost is $2,342,475.00.  Staff recommends investing State Housing Investment Partnership (SHIP) funding for the project in the amount of $201,560. The City’s approved Local Housing Assistance Plan (LHAP) envisions the City investing in projects of this nature and sufficient funding has been allocated for such an investment.  An investment of Home Investment Partnership Program (HOME) funds in the amount of $282,000 was previously approved by the City Commission on November 1, 2017 via Resolution R-2017-316. This item facilitates the investment of SHIP funds.
