BACKGROUND: 

On May 5, 2020, the Board of County Commissioners approved the submission of FY2020-2024 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Capital Improvement Plan (CIP), approved a project list, and authorized staff to submit the CDBG Pre-Award Approval Request to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), and subsequently approved the FY 2020-2024 CDBG CIP. The County Manager or his designee are authorized to sign any resolutions or agreements necessary for implementation of the CDBG CIP.

The CIP originally included an allocation of $893,275 to NPHY for the partial demolition/renovation and new construction to double the size of an existing 2,200 Sq. Ft. facility to a 4,400 Sq. Ft. facility dedicated to strengthening NPHY's critical direct client services for homeless youth aged 12-21. The new facility will be known as the NPHY OVO Center.  This is a "drop-in center"; NPHY also operates 7 housing properties and 2 emergency shelters.

On February 2, 2021, the BCC approved additional funding in the amount of $800,000 in FY20-24 CDBG funds to meet increased costs of construction for the design and construction of the NPHY OVO Center, bringing up the total to $1,693,275.

Due to more recent increases in costs, an additional $288,000 is needed to meet the current market pricing for materials and labor to complete the project, bringing up the total to $1,981,275. The project is nearly complete. CDBG administrative cost savings will be reallocated to the project.

The District Attorney's Office has reviewed and approved this item as to form.
