The department is often in danger of non-compliance to the timeliness standard test set by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). An unsolicited proposal policy is, therefore, needed to ensure the department’s compliance. Having this policy will increase entitlement grant spending prior to the yearly dilemma of being non-compliant.
Unsolicited Proposal Policy
Staff in the Housing & Community Services Department completed a Comprehensive Housing Policy to help shape and guide future decisions which may impact on the quality of life with respect to housing. The policy references housing affordability and availability, as well as neighborhood stability and resources needed to implement strategies which are recommended. The City plans to discuss elements of the policy in upcoming workshops.
