3. RDA Business:
a. Discussion and consideration of approving Resolution No. RDA 17-01 committing funds to Neighborhood Solutions for either the perpetuation of the Neighborhood Improvement Program or the Single Family Rehabilitation and Reconstruction Grant and Loan Program
Manager Warnke noted the RDA has partnered with Neighborhood Solutions in the past. The Board has two options to commit funds. They can approve $50K toward grants for low to moderate income homeowners. The funds would be used for home improvement projects. If the homeowners stay in their homes for five (5) years, it is a full grant. If they sell their home before the five (5) years is up, they must repay a portion of the housing funds.
The second option would be a loan program. The loans would be from Olene Walker Housing Fund and have a cheaper interest rate. The RDA funds would be used as a grant and would lower the amount homeowners would be borrowing. There would be a five (5) year trust deed that is recorded and would be on their property.
The program has had great success and helped people. The Neighborhood Housing Solutions would apply for grant funds. If the grant funds were not granted, the second option would apply and it would be a loan program through Olene Walker. Neighborhood Housing Solutions is a non-profit organization located in Logan. These funds have been earmarked for this type of program, the Board is just directing where it will go.
Motion by Board Member Vance to approve Resolution No. RDA 17-01 committing funds to the Neighborhood Housing Solutions as it states here. Motion seconded by Board Member Doutre. Roll Call Vote: Board Member Doutre – aye, Board Member Holmgren – aye, Board Member Rohde – aye, and Board Member Vance – aye. Motion approved.
