Annual Action Plan FY17/PY16

Year 4 of the

Consolidated Plan 2013-2017

Executive Summary

AP-05 Executive Summary - 24 CFR 91.200(c), 91.220(b)

1. Introduction

The City of Tampa has realized many programmatic changes over the last four years as we work to build a solid foundation for future growth.  This past year the Housing and Community Development Division expanded to include Human Rights Investigation.  The merging of the two divisions allows the two individual divisions to share resources and better serve the community. This merger will allow the City of Tampa to implement the new rules under Affirmatively Furthering Fair housing. The 2016-2017 Action Plan provides details on the specific activities the City of Tampa will undertake during Program Year 2016 to implement the final year of its Five Year Strategic Plan. The Action Plan outlines how the City of Tampa plans to allocate the resources it expects to receive from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to address the priority housing and community development needs outlined in the Consolidated Plan. The funding covered by the Action Plan are the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), Home Investment Partnerships Program (HOME), Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA), Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) and Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP).

2. Summarize the objectives and outcomes identified in the Plan 

This could be a restatement of items or a table listed elsewhere in the plan or a reference to another location. It may also contain any essential items from the housing and homeless needs assessment, the housing market analysis or the strategic plan.

The objectives and outcomes outlined in this Action Plan are intended to achieve the remaining goals in the Consolidated Plan with an emphasis on expanding the supply of affordable housing and address the homelessness in the City of Tampa. Funding is being provided to agencies that have a strong track record of serving the community and achieving measureable outcomes that improve the lives of the clients they serve. There are three main components to the Outcome Performance Measurement System: objectives, outcomes, and indicators. The objectives and outcomes are interconnected and defined by HUD. Each of the activities described in this Action Plan is designed to meet one of the major objectives and to contribute accomplishments under one or more of the three categories of outcomes. These activities were selected based on the FY 2013-2017 Consolidated Plan priorities and competitive Request for Application for housing, community development, homelessness services, public services, economic development, Persons with HIV/AIDS housing and supportive services, and public facilities projects. The applications were evaluated and ranked to determine funding levels.

3. Evaluation of past performance

This is an evaluation of past performance that helped lead the grantee to choose its goals or projects.

The City reports on its progress towards goals set in the Consolidated Plan and Action Plans in the Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER). The PY 2014 CAPER was submitted to HUD December 29, 2015.

The City has exceeded the majority of the housing and community development goals set in the program year 2014 Action Plan. Even with this success, some of the specific housing activities have been negatively impacted by an increase in housing costs in the City of Tampa due to the demand for affordable housing. For instance, with the high foreclosure rate has pushed many families into the rental market. The large jobs increase has made Tampa attractive to young professionals. Housing production is having a hard time keeping up with the demand. Rents increased last year by over 20% and affordable housing units at the end of the affordability period are being converted to market rate rents where the requirements are lower and the rewards are higher.

Outcome Performance Measures

During PY 2016, the City plans to utilize CDBG, NSP, ESG, HOME and HOPWA funding to implement the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) goals of creating decent housing, a suitable living environment, and expanding economic opportunities for individuals and families earning at or below 80% of the area median income.

The Department of Housing and Urban Development requires an outcome performance measurement system for communities that receive formula grants. The City of Tampa’s outcome performance measures allow HUD to clearly demonstrate program results at the national level.

A detailed analysis of the City performance measures is identified in the Goals and Objectives Section of this Annual Plan.
