Title

Consider recommendations regarding the adoption of an Authorizing Resolution accepting a Cash Flow Loan of State of California General Funds, in an amount up to $31,460,126.00 from the State of California Housing and Community Development Department (State HCD), to ensure, as may be necessary, continued, uninterrupted processing and payment to eligible households that applied for Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP) financial assistance on or before to March 31, 2022, as follows:

 

a) Adopt a Resolution for the application for a Cash-Flow Loan from the State of California in an amount not to exceed $31,460,126.00 to ensure that every qualified applicant for ERAP assistance that applied on or before March 31, 2022 receives assistance;

 

b) Authorize the County Executive Officer, or her designee, to execute a Master Standard Agreement (MSA) and related documentation, forms, and reports as may be requested and required by State HCD in a form substantially similar to the included MSA, subject to the approval and concurrence of the Auditor-Controller, County Counsel, and Risk Management; and

 

c) Determine that the above recommended actions are not a project under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) pursuant to CEQA Guidelines Section 15378(b)(4), because they consist of the creation of government funding mechanisms or other government fiscal activities, which do not involve any commitment to any specific project which may result in a potentially significant physical impact on the environment; and are otherwise exempt pursuant to CEQA Guidelines Section 15269 as they consist of specific actions necessary to mitigate an emergency.
