BUSINESS OF THE CITY COUNCIL YAKIMA, WASHINGTON AGENDA STATEM ENT Item No. 9. For Meeting of: February 19, 2019 ITEM TITLE: Public meeting to consider citizen comments on the proposed 2019 Annual Action Plan for Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and HOME Fund Programs SUBMITTED BY: Joan Davenport,AI CP, Community Development Director Archie Matthews, O N D S Manager(509) 576-6761 SUMMARY EXPLANATION: Every year the City of Yakima is required by the Federal Housing and Urban Development Department (HUD) to provide an Annual Action Plan that outlines the City of Yakima's budget plans for using Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) entitlement funds and HOME Investment dollars to meet the needs of its low to moderate income citizens with "eligible activities". The CDBG program has three primary objectives; to benefit low and moderate income persons, to assist with problems relating to slum and blight, and to assist with urgent health and welfare needs. The program can thus provide assistance in a broad range of activities and services, but at least 70% of all funds must be spent on assisting people with issues related to low income. The HOME Program can only assist low/moderate income persons with issues relating to housing; which can range from new construction of single-family to rental housing and down payment assistance for first time homebuyers. In keeping with HUD regulations, the City of Yakima must allow a thirty day written comment period and two public meetings in order to give the citizens of Yakima an opportunity to comment and provide input on the proposed 2019 Annual Action Plan "DRAFT". This is the first of two public meetings and within the thirty days written comment period that began January 22, 2019. The proposed 2019 Annual Action Plan DRAFT is available at the City Clerk's office or on the City's website at: https://www.yakimawa.gov/services/neighborhood-development-services/files/2019-AAP- Draft.pdf ITEM BUDGETED: NA STRATEGIC PRIORITY: Neighborhood and Community Building 2 APPROVED FOR City Manager SUBMITTAL: STAFF RECOMMENDATION: BOARD/COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION: ATTACHMENTS: Description Upload Date Type D 2019 DRAFT Annual kiwi Plan 112412019 Backup Meitendl 3 City of Yakima Office of Neighborhood Development Services Community Development Block Grant HOME Inv estment Partnership: i 2019 Annual Action Plan geI t 0 * . d ' xta Annual Action Plan 1 1019 min a rnmd no::sesmn Mn W+al+oi4 4 Executive Summary AP-05 Executive Summary- 24 CFR 91.200(c), 91.220(b) 1. Introduction As the annual recipient of federal Community Development Block Grant(CDBG)and HOME Investment Partnership (HOME)funds,the City of Yakima is required to engage in a careful planning process. This process involves a long-term five-year strategy,which is detailed in a document called the Consolidated Plan, and a subset of this document known as the Annual Action Plan. Each Action Plan specifies the things the City will do during the coming year to implement those steps it feels will lead to the accomplishment of the goals set forth in the Consolidated Plan. A key component of serving the needs of local residents is to meet with them,and listen to them as they express their thoughts. ONDS follows a Yakima City Council adopted "Citizen Participation Plan" as approved by HUD. This plan dictates how the Office of Neighborhood Development Services conducts citizen participation input meetings for both the Consolidated Plan and the Annual Action Plan. Information is collected from City residents and others in a variety of ways.There are regular surveys conducted of local citizens to ask about their needs and challenges. Meetings are held to provide the opportunity for people to speak. And as required by HUD City staff meet with other providers of services for low-income persons to hear about the things they feel are important. By the time the 2019 Action Plan is completed, City staff will have met with local residents on at least two occasions to share information on the possible activities and hear their ideas as is outlined in the HUD mandated "Citizen Participation Plan" as well as held a "Thirty Day Written Comment Period" on the proposed 2019 Annual Action Plan draft. This document is the 2019 Annual Action Plan for the City of Yakima's 2015-2019 Consolidated Plan. The format and content of the document is largely dictated by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development(HUD) regulations. These regulations provide a framework that helps ensure that each dollar invested meets local priorities and complies with Federal law. Congress implemented the CDBG program in order to provide assistance to communities such as Yakima,as they work to provide various forms of assistance to low and moderate-income individuals and families. According to law,the CDBG program has three primary objectives;to benefit low and moderate income persons,to assist with problems relating to slum and blight, and to assist with urgent health and welfare needs. The program can thus provide assistance in a broad range of activities and services; but at least 70%of all funds must be spent on assisting people with issues related to low income. Annual Action Plan 2 2019 OMB Control No:2506-0117(exp.06/30/2018) 5 The HOME program is of more recent origin. It can only assist low/moderate income persons with issues relating to housing. These services can range from new construction of single family, rental housing,down payment assistance and assistance with rents. While lacking the flexibility of the Block Grant program,the HOME program has provided valuable services to hundreds of families here in Yakima. By combining both programs under one strategy the City of Yakima has provided a broad-spectrum approach to helping the many local residents these programs serve. 2.

Despite the reductions of years past at the federal funding level and the recent increase,the City of Yakima is continually challenged to continue programs with the fluctuation of funding, in order to continue to serve it's low to moderate income citizens to the best of it's ability. Furthermore,any decision to change CDBG funding greater than 10%increase or decrease in any program funding line after the public comment period received by the City of Yakima ONDS will trigger an amendment as per the adopted Citizen Participation Plan. Although any increase or decrease in funding directly attributed to the Federal Allocation will be added or subtracted to the largest funded program as currently funded through those federal entitlement allocations.(CDBG would be either added or subtracted from the Single Family Rehabilitation program and HOME funds would be added or subtracted from the New Construction program line.Any addition or subtraction to or from either of these program lines equaling more than 10%would trigger a substantial amendment to the Annual Action Plan per the currently adopted Citizen Participation Plan.)

Match requirements are set by HUD,imposed upon the City of Yakima which are met on an annual basis. Depending upon the Match requirements imposed,the City of Yakima has an accumulated "Match amount"that has been banked through the years through the use of volunteers and local non-federal funds. Thus depending upon Match requirement,the City will draw upon that match reserve to fullfill any match requirements HUD sets. In years past the City of Yakima has been 100% match exempt to 25%match contribution as set by HUD,thus allowing the city to build up a match reserve account. 8 Annual Action Plan 16 2019 OMB Control No:2506-0117(exp.06/30/2018) 19 If appropriate, describe publically owned land or property located within the jurisdiction that may be used to address the needs identified in the plan Currently there is no publically owned land or property under consideration for use that isn't already addressed in other parts of the plan.

Many of the specific locations are to be determined throughout the year as need arises through the Senior/Disabled Emergency Home Repair program. Also in partnership with many HOME Investment projects the specific addresses are unavailable until the design and layout of the site has gone through the planning and zoning process prior to site preparation. Many of the HOME Investment projects take years of development through many types of funding grant rounds to include state and local funding, environmental reviews, planning and zoning reviews before a specific address can be allocated. Also be aware that many of the program numbers served are listed here as an "Approximate number" due to the ever changing nature of many of the development criteria as listed above. These numbers are subject to change depending upon the need,cost associated with the development as it goes through the many reviews, as well as the subject of the development and construction costs that can rise due to inflation over a long development and construction period.

Therefore,the programs are offered city wide,to qualified appicants. Discussion The City of Yakima does not limit any CDBG or HOME Investment funding to any specific geographical area and all programs are designed to assist eligible applicants and funding within the entire city limits of Yakima as appropriate. Annual Action Plan 31 2019 OMB Control No:2506-0117(exp.06/30/2018) 34 Affordable Housing AP-55 Affordable Housing—91.220(g) Introduction The main focus of the City of Yakima through ONDS in using both CDBG and HOME Investment funds is "Affordable housing". The Single Family Rehabilitation program is focused on rehabilitation of existing housing to enable the homeowners to continue to reside in their affordable housing,through the Senior/Disabled Emergency Home Repair Program to include;the Senior/Disabled Wheel Chair ramp program and the Exterior Paint Program. ONDS also supports and encourages Affordable housing through the use of HOME funds for;the First Time Homebuyers Program,the New Construction Program and the use of a minimum of 15%of yearly entitlement HOME funds in supporting Affordable housing though partnerships with certified CHDO/s One Year Goals for the Number of Households to be Supported Homeless 32 Non-Homeless 130 Special-Needs 10 Total 172 Table 9-One Year Goals for Affordable Housing by Support Requirement One Year Goals for the Number of Households Supported Through Rental Assistance 0 The Production of New Units 82 Rehab of Existing Units 90 Acquisition of Existing Units 0 Total 172 Table 10-One Year Goals for Affordable Housing by Support Type Discussion Due to the limited Federal Entitlement funds from HUD,the City of Yakima has cut a number of programs and continues to serve a growing number of Senior/Disabled homeowners with severe emergency repairs such as; no heat, no power, no water, no sewer, and deteriorated roofs that have become insurance concerns that may lead to cancellation. The City of Yakima through partnerships with two qualified Community Housing Development Annual Action Plan 32 2019 OMB Control No:2506-0117(exp.06/30/2018) 35 Organizations expect to construct two single family homes to be sold to qualifed low to moderate income first time homebuyers, as well as assist with land acquisition and development of an 80 unit multi-family low to moderate income apartment complex within the city limits of Yakima. Annual Action Plan 33 2019 OMB Control No:2506-0117(exp.06/30/2018) 36 AP-60 Public Housing— 91.220(h) Introduction The City of Yakima continues to support the Yakima Housing Authority(YHA),although indirectly. In the past,the City of Yakima has supported specific facilities through various ways, even though budget restrictions severely limit the City's participation in current projects, each request of the YHA is reviewed individually and participation is given consideration through the Yakima City Council as are other funding requests. The Office of Neighborhood Development Services(ONDS)as the local environmental representative for HUD projects has worked with the YHA to enable projects to have the proper documentation in order to meet the HUD regulation criteria needed for those specific prjects as requested by the YHA. Actions planned during the next year to address the needs to public housing The City of Yakima ONDS expects to continue to partner and support the YHA as our limited federal budget will allow.Specific projects and funding requests will be analyzed and given consideration by due process regarding the most beneficial use of entitlement funds. ONDS expects to continue to support the YHA with environmental review and documentation as requested by the YHA. Actions to encourage public housing residents to become more involved in management and participate in homeownership The Yakima Housing Authority encourages resident involvement with programs like the Resident Advisory Board (RAB).The RAB provides the YHA and the residents with a forum for sharing information about the agency's Annual Action Plan. RAB membership is comprised of individuals who reflect and represent the residents assisted by the public housing agency(PHA).The role of the RAB is to assist the PHA in developing the PHA Plan and in making any significant amendment or modification to the Plan. In addition,the Yakima Housing Authoirity is an active participant in crime-free rental housing which allos the residents to be a part of the local block watch which ONDS participates in every year,inviting the residents and local organizations to partake in National Night Out. The YHA also participates in the Yakima County Asset Building Coalition,and they are establishing a partnership with YVOCAN for the Union Gap and Yakima area.YHA is also in the process of collaborating with the AmeriCorps VISTA Education Award with the goal of every eligible resident signing up for the College-Bound Scholarship. Lastly,YHA is administering the Family Self-Sufficiency(FSS) Program.This program enables families assisted through the HCV program to increase their earned income and reduce their dependency on Annual Action Plan 34 2019 OMB Control No:2506-0117(exp.06/30/2018) 37 welfare assistance and rental subsidies. If the PHA is designated as troubled, describe the manner in which financial assistance will be provided or other assistance The Yakima Housing Authority is not designated as "troubled". Discussion The Yakima Housing Authority continues to do an extraordinary job in assisting Yakima residents with decent,safe,and affordable housing though its many diverse housing programs.The City of Yakima looks forward to continuing its partnership with the YHA to provide this type of housing to its residents. Annual Action Plan 35 2019 OMB Control No:2506-0117(exp.06/30/2018) 38 AP-65 Homeless and Other Special Needs Activities—91.220(i) Introduction The Yakima Valley Conference of Goverments(YVCOG)is the coordinator of the Yakima County 10-year Homeless Housing Plan.YVCOG is comprised of a board group of public, non-profit, and private human service agencies in Yakima County.WOG conducts regular meetings and agendas, updates the Yakima County Continuum of Care Plan, and organizes annual Point-in-Time Homeless Persons Count. The City of Yakima recognizes homelessness as the most severe housing problem and strives to prevent the most at-risk populations from becoming homeless by using CDBG funds for the Single Family Rehabilitation Program.These programs are designated to help the high-risk senior and disabled groups with emergency rehabilitation,wheelchair ramps and exterior painting in the hopes that this will allow them to continue to occupy their current affordable housing units. ONDS also strives to support affordable housing with its homeownerhip programs,the First Time Homeownership Program,the New Construction Program and the direct and indirect support of certified Community Housing Development Organizations(CHDOs)in creating new single family housing that is decent,safe,and affordable.This directly affects the homeless by giving them the opportunity to own their first home, or by indirectly allowing someone in either a rental situation or a public housing situation to buy their first home and thereby indirectly allow another affordable rental or public housing unit to be occupied by an otherwise homeless individual or family. Describe the jurisdictions one-year goals and actions for reducing and ending homelessness including Reaching out to homeless persons(especially unsheltered persons) and assessing their individual needs The City of Yakima continues to support the Yakima County Continuum of Care Plan as a city policy.The first priority of Continuum of Care is to maintain existing resources that serve the ends of the homeless within the community.The plan identifies new projects and services that fill critical gaps in prevention services,outreach, emergency and transitional housing, support services, and long-term affordable housing. Addressing the emergency shelter and transitional housing needs of homeless persons The City of Yakima continues to work with the Yakima Valley Council of Governments(YVCOG)through Continuum of Care in addressing emergency shelters and transitional housing opportunities on an idividual project basis. Helping homeless persons(especially chronically homeless individuals and families,families Annual Action Plan 36 2019 OMB Control No:2506-0117(exp.06/30/2018) 39 with children,veterans and their families, and unaccompanied youth) make the transition to permanent housing and independent living, including shortening the period of time that individuals and families experience homelessness,facilitating access for homeless individuals and families to affordable housing units, and preventing individuals and families who were recently homeless from becoming homeless again Due to the severely limited Federal funds received by the City of Yakima through reduced entitlements, the City is unable to address this particular need until additional funding becomes available. Helping low-income individuals and families avoid becoming homeless, especially extremely low-income individuals and families and those who are: being discharged from publicly funded institutions and systems of care(such as health care facilities, mental health facilities, foster care and other youth facilities, and corrections programs and institutions); or, receiving assistance from public or private agencies that address housing, health, social services, employment, education, or youth needs. The City of Yakima,though its Senior/Disabled Emergency Home Repair Program, is often contacted by local hospital and nursing care facilities about seniors and/or disabled homeowners that need emergency repairs or wheelchair ramps in order to be allowed to be returned to their homes after being released from these care facilities. Discussion Due to severely limited resources,the City of Yakima continues to direct its attention to assisting senior/disabled homeowners through its Emergency Home Repair Program to enable the elderly,frail and disabled to remain in their homes and thereby not becoming homeless and adding to the Continuum of Care's burden with additional homelessness. Annual Action Plan 37 2019 OMB Control No:2506-0117(exp.06/30/2018) 40 AP-75 Barriers to affordable housing—91.2200) Introduction: There are high land costs within the city limits of Yakima,which makes affordable housing expensive to develop. Even when construction costs may be sustainable,the operation costs for managing special populations within affordable and/or public housing can make such projects very expensive in the long run, making them very difficult to develop. Another barrier to affordable housing is the reduction of federal funds allocated by HUD to the City of Yakima for affordable housing,along with the ever increasing amount of administrative burden which outpaces the amount of funds actually used to assist those in need. Actions it planned to remove or ameliorate the negative effects of public policies that serve as barriers to affordable housing such as land use controls,tax policies affecting land, zoning ordinances, building codes,fees and charges, growth limitations, and policies affecting the return on residential investment The City of Yakima continues to work with expanding economic development activities to bolster the local economy and spur building investment toward the construction of more affordable residential developments and units.The Community Development Department through its Planning Division continues to research and recommend new zoning policies to allow a more diverse range of housing types and make it easier to develop housing in certain areas. Discussion: The effective use of Federal allocations to the responsible local entities with a measured reserve of responsible recording and reporting is the only way of effectively reducing the barrier to affordable housing at the local level. Increasing the benefit to the low and moderate income workforce that has so effectively made our great county what it is,is the only way of increasing affordable housing and will not only effectively raise the entire nationss living standard but also serves it well economically. Annual Action Plan 38 2019 OMB Control No:2506-0117(exp.06/30/2018) 41 AP-85 Other Actions—91.220(k) Introduction: The City of Yakima continues to assist its residents with the use of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)and HOME Investment funds through the Office of Neighborhood Development Services(ONDS) by assisting qualified low to moderate income applicants with the rehabilitation of their exisisting homes, painting over graffiti, as well as stabilization with the use of volunteers and volunteer agencies in cleaning up and keeping our neighborhoods affordable and stable The City also provides public services for youth programs through its public community centers -The Henry Beauchamp(formerly Southeast)Community Center and YPAL. Separate funds are used for the maintenance of these facilities other than HUD regulated funds. Actions planned to address obstacles to meeting underserved needs The City of Yakima will continue to seek federal funding as well as other available funding to overcome the lack of sufficient funds to address all of the underserved needs. The City of Yakima Office of Neighborhood Development Services(ONDS) continues to partner with many non-profits, local service organizations,and other government and non-governmental agencies to assist in meeting underserved needs. Actions planned to foster and maintain affordable housing As discussed throughout the Consolidated Plan and elsewhere in this Annual Action Plan,the City of Yakima has a wide variety of programs directed at maintaining affordable existing housing through rehabilitation, as well as new single family dwellings through its homeownership program. The City oif Yakima continues to partner with local affordable housing agencies. Actions planned to reduce lead-based paint hazards As discussed in the Five-Year Consolidated Plan,ONDS aligns all of its rehabilitation programs with the Washington State lead-based paint refulations and continues to presume any disturbed paint surfaces are "Possible lead hazards" and thus are treated according to the state's regulations and HUD's lead- based paint policy. ONDS has both certified supervisors and staff on hand to assess and address lead-based paint as well as hires cerified state lead-based paint professionals to deal with all projects with pontential lead-based paint disturbed surfaces. Actions planned to reduce the number of poverty-level families Annual Action Plan 39 2019 OMB Control No:2506-0117(exp.06/30/2018) 42 The City of Yakima continues to address economic development opportunities to bring more businesses and jobs to Yakima that pay decent living wages, as well as encourage growth and development of existing opportunities to assist poverty-level families. Actions planned to develop institutional structure The City of Yakima continues to work with existing agencies and departments within Yakima as well as consultants and other governmental bodies outside Yakima to strengthen and enhance the current institutional structure.We will continue to seek out partnerships with organizations as well as private enterprises to further develop the institutional structure. Actions planned to enhance coordination between public and private housing and social service agencies The City of Yakima through the Office of Neighborhood Development Services(ONDS)will continue to coordinate with public and private housing and social service agencies through committee meetings and consultation to coordinate services to the residents of Yakima. Discussion: ONDS has served its community for over 40 years through its vast and varied programs,administering all kinds of Federal and State funds over the years,towards the betterment of the community and with a focus on affordable housing. Partnerships with other organizations have been instrumental in continuing affordable housing within Yakima with every agency struggling with funding from the past serveral years of economic struggle. The City of Yakima has focused on being a good steward of both CDBG and HOME Investment funds and stretching those dwindling resources to the best of its ability in serving the community. The City of Yakima continues to strive for affordable housing with the assistance of the community, neighborhoods and partners in effectively using its entitlement funds.
