The Housing Review Committee (HRC) is responsible for providing recommendations to City Council on the selection of development projects to be funded with State Housing Initiative Partnership (SHIP) and HOME Program funds throughout the year. The HRC is comprised of representatives from City Planning, Urban Design, OPD, Permitting Services, Real Estate Management, Code Enforcement, the Orange County Housing Finance Authority, the Affordable Housing Advisory Committee, the CDBG Review Committee, and the Municipal Planning Board.
At their meeting on December 1, 2014, the HRC voted to recommend approval of a funding request from ATTAIN, INC for $63,147 of SHIP Program FY 2013-2014 funds to develop two additional bedrooms and one bath to the group home at 5172 Neponset Ave., Orlando, Florida. This addition will allow each of the six female residents with developmental disabilities currently residing in the home to have their own bedroom. The home renovation will include upgrades to the existing fire and safety systems.
