PURPOSE:
City Council is requested to authorize contracts with local agencies receiving annual funding allocations and agencies selected through a competitive Response for Proposal (RFP) process to address the housing needs of residents who experiencing homelessness in our community. The proposed funding recommendations are consistent with the goals identified in the City's 2020-2024 HUD Consolidated Plan and the FY 2020-2021 Annual Action Plan.
