Agenda Item

The HACB assists low and moderate income residents of Butte County to secure and maintain high quality affordable housing. Subsidized housing is provided to families, seniors and disabled individuals whose income is between 50% and 80% of median area income. Funding for the various programs is provided by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and the USDA Rural Development. The HACB is governed by a seven-member Board of Commissioners appointed by the Board of Supervisors and comprised of the following: one member appointed by each member of the Board of Supervisors, whose terms coincide with the appointing Supervisors; and two Tenant Commissioners (one Tenant Commissioner, At-Large; and one Tenant Commissioner, Over the Age of 62), appointed by the full Board to two year terms. A total of seven applications were received for these positions. While all seven qualify to serve as the Tenant Commissioner, At-Large, only two of the seven qualify to serve as the Tenant Commissioner, Over the Age of 62. As all vacancy posting requirements for these two positions have been met, it is recommended that the Board of Supervisors appoint a Tenant Commissioner, At-Large and a Tenant Commissioner, Over the Age of 62 to the HACB, with both terms to end August 25, 2022. At the August 25, 2020 Board of Supervisors Meeting, the Board requested recommendations from the HACB. Pursuant to State law, the HACB is precluded from making recommendations for appointments.
