Overview: This item provides an overview of the Affordable Housing Development Reserve (AHDR) and the Housing Advisory Board's (HAB) funding recommendation.


Recommendation(s):
That the Council approve the Housing Advisory Board's funding recommendation for the Affordable Housing Development Reserve (AHDR) applications received in October 2021.

Background
* On March 23, 2015, the Town Council approved recommendations by staff and the HAB to use the affordable housing funds in the FY15 budget to establish an Affordable Housing Development Reserve.
* Since its creation, the Town has supported the development of over 330 units of affordable housing and the preservation of 30 affordable homes with funding from the AHDR.
* The AHDR is dedicated exclusively to the development and preservation of affordable housing and focuses on four priority project areas:
1. Land bank and land acquisition
2. Rental subsidy and development
3. Homeownership development and assistance
4. Future development planning

Overview of the FY22 AHDR Funding Cycle
* Staff announced the first FY22 AHDR Request for Proposals (RFP) at the beginning of September 2021 via the Town website, news release, email to local affordable housing partners, and direct outreach. We received five applications by the October 1st deadline:
* On October 14, 2021, the Housing Advisory Board unanimously recommended the below funding plan.
