RECOMMENDATION:
Recommendation Concerning Execution of Certification of Consistency with the Consolidated Plan Forms for Continuum of Care Application - Tonya Gant, Neighborhood & Human Services Department Director

That the Board authorize the County Administrator to sign Certification of Consistency with the Consolidated Plan Forms for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Continuum of Care (COC) applications for homeless housing, planning and service projects by the EscaRosa Coalition on the Homeless (ECOH).
BACKGROUND:
The EscaRosa Coalition on the Homeless (ECOH) is submitting projects through the annual HUD Continuum of Care competitive funding solicitation. HUD regulations require that these proposed or continuing projects be in compliance with and supportive of the governing Consolidated Plan, which is the HUD Escambia Consortium 2015-2020 Consolidated Plan approved by the Board last year.

The following projects are being submitted:
1. Continuum of Care Planning (Agency: EscaRosa Coalition on the Homeless)
2. Centralized Coordinated Entry (Agency: EscaRosa Coalition on the Homeless)
3. HMIS Supportive Housing Program 2016 (Agency: EscaRosa Coalition on the Homeless)
4. New Permanent Housing Program 12 Beds (Agency: Lakeview Center, Inc.)
5. Permanent Housing Program 50 Beds (Agency: Lakeview Center, Inc.)
6. Transitional Housing Program (Agency: Loaves and Fishes Soup Kitchen, Inc.)

These housing, planning and service projects are each consistent with housing and homeless goals outlined in the Escambia Consortium HUD Consolidated Plan and therefore should be executed by the County. These certifications with their corresponding Project applications are due to HUD by September 14, 2016.
