Meeting: May 14, 2018

No additional detail provided

Subject: School Funding Policy

The School Funding Policy (Policy) outlines the method of funding to be provided to Roanoke City Public Schools (RCPS). It sets forth the formula used to determine the amount of funding including adjustments for dedicated revenues, as well as dates by which information and/or funding will be provided to RCPS.
Tagged Passions:education, policy, and funding

In May of 2003, the City increased the admissions tax rate for events held at the City's Civic Center from 6.5 to 9 . The increase was for the purpose of generating incremental revenue to fund the debt service cost associated with bonds issued to facilitate Phase II of improvements to the Civic Center.

In September of 201 7, Council approved a process for a revenue estimate to be established in the General Fund in order to comply with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles. The Berglund Civic Center previously retained the revenue derived from the admission tax. The revenue is now collected by The Berglund Civic Center, recognized in the General Fund and then transferred back to The Berglund Civic Center. The Policy should be updated to reflect the exclusion of the admissions tax collected by the Berglund Civic Center including admissions tax collected by The Berglund Civic Center for events held at Elmwood Park. Recommended Action:

This methodology will be used during budget preparation to determine the amount of funding appropriated for Schools, and the same method will be followed at the completion of the fiscal year to finalize the actual amount of funding provided to Schools.

CITY COUNCIL AGENDA REPORT

To: Honorable Mayor and Members of City Council Meeting: May 14, 2018 Subject: Consideration and Approval of 2018-2019 HUD Annual Plan Background: The City of Roanoke receives entitlement funds annually from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development under the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnership (HOME) and Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) programs. The City receives approximately 2.0 million in new federal funds each year. These funds are leveraged with monies and in-kind support from agencies that provide services to low and moderate income individuals and families in the City. The City then develops programs to provide services such as affordable housing, public services, neighborhood revitalization, economic development and homeless services. Each program also allows the City to recover administrative costs to oversee these funds. The City is required to submit a five-year Consolidated Plan with a related Annual Plan to HUD for approval. The Consolidated Plan, adopted and approved in 201 5, covers the years 201 5-2019 and describes the City and its overall priorities and objectives for the anticipated funds for the next five years. Each year, the City is required to develop an Annual Plan to describe the specific activities to be undertaken for the program year, which coincides with the City's fiscal year. In compliance with the City's Citizen Participation Plan and HUD requirements, a public meeting was held November 9, 2017 to receive citizen input on development of the plan. City Council held a public hearing on the plan on April 26, 2018, which served as a second public meeting to receive input on the draft plan. A 30-day public comment period was advertised on April 4, 2018. Considerations: The proposed Annual Plan represents the efforts to be made in directing a majority of HUD funds into the Melrose-Orange Target Area (MOTA). This will be the third year that HUD funds are fully devoted to MOTA. The Annual Plan provides for 1 ,7 44,1 09 in CDBG and HOME funds to be used for projects and programs in MOTA for FY18-19. The Annual Plan has been properly advertised publicly for a required 30 day public comment period beginning April 4 and concluding May 4, 2018. During this period, City Council held a public hearing on April 26, 2018 on the HUD Annual Plan. Three formal comments were received during the public comment period. The proposed HUD Annual Plan is summarized below: Revenues CDBG Entitlements CDBG Carryover HOME Entitlements HOME Carryover ESG Entitlements

CITY OF ROANOKE HUD ENTITLEMENT GRANTS

FY 2018-2019 ANNUAL PLAN SUMMARY Overview The City of Roanoke anticipates receiving approximately 2.4 million in new funds annually from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in three grants: Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME) and Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG). Roanoke is an entitlement community under these HUD programs. This means that HUD funds are allocated to the City every year using a formula based on population, income levels, and other factors. The amount that the City receives then depends on how much Congress appropriates for the entire nation. CDBG funds have been allocated to the City since 1975 and can be used for activities ranging from housing to economic development and from job training to infrastructure projects. For the 2018-2019 program year, the City is expected to receive 1,732,287 in new CDBG funds. However, with carry-over and program income, the City estimates that a total of 2,093,287 in CDBG funds will be available. CDBG funds are primarily intended to benefit low- and moderate-income persons and areas, though a limited amount can also be used for reducing blight in economically distressed areas. The amount of funds that can be used for administration, planning, and human services is also limited by regulation and City Council policy; however, the 2018-2019 Annual Plan has proposed administrative costs at 14.7 of total entitlement, well below the 20 threshold allowed by HUD. The HOME program is exclusively for housing to benefit those of low or moderate income, including rehabilitation, new construction, homeownership assistance, and improvements to rental housing. The City has been receiving HOME funds since 1992. For the 2018-2019 program year, the City is expected to receive 606,064 in new HOME funds. HOME funds require a 12.5 match, which is met with volunteer labor from Habitat for Humanity projects funded with HOME dollars. At least 15 of each annual HOME grant must be invested in qualifying projects conducted by Community Housing Development Organizations ( CHDOs ). Currently, Habitat for Humanity is the only CHDO serving the city. Administration of HOME funds are 8.1 , substantially lower than the 10 allowed by HUD. The emphasis for use of Emergency Solutions Grant funds has shifted from providing for activities that assist homeless individuals and families to early Intervention and prevention of homelessness. HUD has issued new rules for the distribution of these funds by entitlement communities, which are being assessed by city staff and the Roanoke Valley Council of Community Services. Total funding in FY 2018-2019 is expected to be 139,611, with administrative expenses of 2.0 of an allowed 7.5 . Available Funding: Category CDBG HOME ESG: Description
