An eleven member advisory board has been created for reviewing and creating programs to help the city’s neediest housing and community development residents. Each Board member represents a certain sector of the housing industry.
The Board makes public service program recommendations to the City Council that pertain to the use of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds. The Board also acts in the capacity of the Local Affordable Housing Committee and has the responsibility of reviewing affordable housing incentives for continued receipt of State Housing Initiates Partnership Program funds. Other responsibilities of the Board include reviewing: 1) All policies pertaining to affordable & fair housing in the City of Palm Bay; 2) Activities being proposed for the annual CDBG Action Plan submission to Brevard County and the Federal government; 3) The Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER) prior to its consideration by the City Council; and 4) All revisions to the State Housing Initiatives Partnership's Local Housing Assistance Plan (LHAP) prior to its consideration by the City Council.
