Background Discussion

On June 17, 2014, the Manatee County Board of County Commissioners adopted Resolution R-14-067 adopting the 2014/2015 Annual Action Plan. 

On September 18, 2014, Manatee County received notification from HUD that the action plan was reviewed and approved as submitted. 

Execution of each funding approval/agreement must be signed and dated by Manatee County to accept grant funds from HUD.

Executed grant agreements must be returned to HUD, no later than November 5, 2014.  Since the County did not receive the grant documents until 10/21/14, and the next available BOCC meeting date was not until 11/6/14, HUD has agreed to an electronic submission on 11/7/14 with originals to follow in the mail shortly thereafter.
