Background Discussion

Through the 2013-2014 appropriation of SHIP funds through Senate Bill 1852, SHIP local governments are required to submit a SHIP Annual Report to the Florida Housing Finance Corporation (FHFC) on activity through September 30, 2015.

The annual report specifically details the County's distribution of funds expended and encumbered for fiscal year 2013-2014.

As required, the annual report verifies that the County's SHIP program is in conformance with the appropriate SHIP rules and regulations and includes the following information:

  1. The number of households served by income category, age, family size, race, and data regarding any special needs populations, such as farmworkers, homeless persons, persons with disabilities, and the elderly.  Counties shall report this information separately for households served in the unincorporated area and each municipality within the county.
  2. The number of units and the average cost of producing units under each local housing assistance strategy.
  3. The average area purchase price of single family units and the amount of rent charged for a rental unit based on unit size.
  4. By income category, the number of mortgages made, the average mortgage amount, and the rate of default.
  5. A description of the status of implementation of each local housing incentive strategy, or if applicable, the local housing incentive plan as set forth in the local government's adopted schedule for implementation.
  6. A concise description of the support services that are available to the residents of affordable housing provided by local programs.
  7. The sales price or value of housing produced and an accounting of what percentage was financed by the local housing distribution, other public moneys, and private resources.
  8. Such other data or affordable housing accomplishments considered significant by the reporting county or eligible municipality or by FHFC.

Availability of the proposed report for public inspection and comment was advertised on October 26, 2015, through the Bradenton Herald.  All written comments received will be transmitted to FHFC for consideration.
