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 distributions of funds expended and encumbered for fiscal year 2014-2015 through 2016-2017.

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. 
  2. The number of units and the average cost of producing units under each local housing assistance strategy.
  3. The average purchase price of single-family units.
  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 Florida Housing Finance Corporation (FHFC).

Availability of the proposed report for public inspection and comment was advertised on September 4, 2017, through the Bradenton Herald.  All written comments received will be transmitted to FHFC for consideration.

For FY 2014-2015, the close out year, $1,393,862.36 was expended.  This funding assisted/supported 29 units of affordable housing (7 units for housing rehabilitation, 16 units with downpayment assistance, and 6 units for housing reconstruction).  These funds were used to leverage over $2.8 million of private and owner funds (a 2.52 to 1 leverage).
