ACTIVITY QUESTIONS

Owner Occupied Housing Rehabilitation

Has any of the information in Section A below changed since the Preliminary Proposal?

If the data in Section A is the same as was presented in the Preliminary Proposal, skip Section A and begin answering the questions in Section B. If changes are being made since the Preliminary Proposal, complete only the areas in the section in need of change.

Section A

Owner-Occupied Housing Rehabilitation: Criteria: Rehabilitation of substandard stick- built or double-wide manufactured homes on a foundation. Household incomes of participating homes cannot exceed 80% of the county median income and the house must be in standard condition after the rehabilitation is complete.

Background

If this activity is part of a multi-community application complete and provide separate answers to the following questions for each partnering community.

Proposals will need to designate a target area of the city. A Plan B option can be proposed that would serve as a contingency if the interest in the primary target area proves not sufficient to meet the proposed goals. Designating a Plan B should be strongly considered as DEED will not allow any other target area expansions for projects that are being implemented.

Cities of 1000 or less can propose city-wide target areas. Cities of 1000 or more must propose a target area and cannot propose a city-wide option as Plan B. If the total population of the combined cities for multi-community applications exceeds 1000, each city will need to propose a target area and Plan B options, if applicable.

Public Facilities/Municipal Water and Wastewater

Has any of the information in Section A below changed since the Preliminary Proposal?

If the data in Section A is the same as was presented in the Preliminary Proposal, skip Section A and begin answering the questions in Section B. If changes are being made since the Preliminary Proposal, complete only the areas in the section in need of change.

Section A

Eligibility

SCDP funds cannot be used for projects anticipating future population growth.

SCDP funds can only pay for service connections if a permanent easement is secured, or if the service connection is publicly-owned. Finally, service connections can only be paid for with SCDP funds under a SCDP housing rehabilitation activity and Housing Quality Standards (HQS) must also be met on the property.

Does the project involve service connections to individual households and properties? Y/N

If yes, how are the connections being paid for?

Federal Objective

The federal objective used for public facilities projects that relate to municipal wastewater and water activities is benefit to low and moderate income people on an area basis (LMA). A low and moderate income (LMI) person resides in households with incomes that are up to 80% of county median income. The federal objective can be met through Census or survey.

#1- Census. The easiest way to meet the LMA federal objective is through a Census determination. If Census data shows that 51% or more of the people in the community are (LMI), the federal objective is met and no survey is needed. To find out a communitys LMI percentage by Census, access this portion of the DEED website: http://mn.gov/deed/assets/hud2010-census_tcm1045-132496.pdf

#2 Survey. A survey will need to be conducted if the Census indicates that the communitys LMI percentage is not at least 51%. Surveys will also need to be conducted if the project will benefit a targeted area of the community. Contact the SCDP prior to completing this application if a target area will be proposed.

The survey form, sample and instructions are contained under SCDP Survey Results Spreadsheet Example, toward the bottom of the Apply page of the SCDP website.

LMA Federal Objective For Activity Met Through: Census Survey (See results attached)

Note: Column G, SCDP Admin %, is the maximum percentage amount that can be drawn on a project (address) based on total SCDP project costs. For example, Mrs. Jones' house gets rehabilitated at a total cost of $20,000 and admin is 14%. The most that can be drawn for admin is $2,800. SCDP understands that the budget page is an estimate of average SCDP costs per unit. The admin allowed to be drawn is based on actual total SCDP project costs.
