Background Discussion

State Statute 420.9075(10) requires each county or eligible municipality to submit to the Florida Housing Finance Corporation (FHFC), by September 15th of each year, a report of its affordable housing programs and accomplishments through June 30th.

The annual report specifically details the County's distribution of funds expended and encumbered from fiscal year(s) 2012-2013 through 2014-2015.

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, and 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 August 24, 2015, through the Bradenton Herald.  All written comments received will be transmitted to FHFC for consideration.
