Background and Discussion:

Attached for Commissioners Court review and approval is the funding for the new construction of 3300 Caroline Street, a new four-story elevator-served building consisting of 149 efficiency apartments, shared space for the supportive programs and office space for the Magnificat Houses, Inc. staff, for permanent supportive housing (PSH) for homeless adults of Harris County, of which 76 units will be set aside as CDBG-DR assisted units for homeless adults of Harris County through the Continuum of Care’s (CoC) Coordinated Access System, and Magnificat Permanent Affordable, LLC will maintain ownership at Project Completion. The total CDBG-DR funding will be $8,538,278.00, the total of all funding is $39,228,425.00. The Project is jointly funded by the City of Houston with Community Development Block Grant-Disaster Recovery Harvey funds. 

 

On May 9, 2018, the GLO notified Harris County to complete a Supplemental Action Plan for 2017 Hurricane Harvey Texas CDBG-DR Round One funding, which will be amended into the State's Action Plan. In accordance with GLO requirements, on July 10, 2018, Harris County Commissioners Court approved the Supplemental Action Plan and resolved to submit to GLO. On February 11, 2019, the GLO and Harris County entered into a Subrecipient Agreement to provide hurricane disaster recovery housing and planning services utilizing HUD Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) funds appropriated under the Continuing Appropriations Act, 2018 and Supplemental Appropriations for Disaster Relief Requirements Act, 2017 (Public Law No. 115-56). The Subrecipient Agreement, as amended, commits $1.092 billion to Harris County housing recovery programs. HUD approved Amendment 3 to the State Action Plan on June 13, 2019, and (a) increased the Affordable Rental Housing Program allocation from $204.5 million to $224.5 million. On August 11, 2020, Harris County Commissioners Court approved funding for and submission of the Project (Project Number D2017-089). On March 18, 2021, the GLO notified Harris County it conditionally approved the 3300 Caroline Street Project, including the Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing review. The project was selected to receive CDBG-DR funds via a project application process that opened November 6, 2019 and closed January 22, 2020.

 

Expected Impact:

The expected impact will be for Magnificat Permanent Affordable, LLC to utilize CDBG-DR funds and enter into a Loan from Harris County to NHPF Caroline Conduit, LLC, which will in turn simultaneously loan such funds to Magnificat Permanent Affordable, LLC to pay for the partial costs of new construction of the Project and increase affordable housing for low-income households of Harris County.

 

Alternative Options:

Alternative options would be that the construction of 3300 Caroline Street would not begin, as Harris County would not enter into a Loan to NHPF Caroline Conduit, LLC, and NHPF Caroline Conduit, LLC would not in turn simultaneously loan such funds to Magnificat Permanent Affordable, LLC to pay for the partial costs of new construction of the Project and increase affordable housing for low-income households of Harris County.
