Agenda Item

HACB is a nonprofit agency incorporated in 1946. The mission of HACB is to assist low and moderate income families, seniors, and disabled individuals of Butte County to secure and maintain high quality, affordable housing. The Department of Behavioral Health was awarded grants HUD to provide housing for unaccompanied, chronically homeless adults with a disabling severe mental illness. In addition to the renewal grants HUD provided to fund this agreement, previous year unexpended grant awards were extended into FY 2020-21 due to the impacts of COVID-19. Under this agreement, the measurable goal is to utilize 10 units as housing for eligible consumers for the fiscal year. The Department recommends entering into an agreement with HACB for the provision of housing assistance for the Butte County homeless, mentally ill population. The term of this agreement is July 1, 2020 through June 30, 2021, with a maximum amount payable of $120,533. Additionally, the Department recommends approving a budget adjustment allocating approved HUD prior year carryover funds to the FY 2020-21 budget in the amount of $39,920 to be utilized per grant requirements.
