Letter from State Department of Economic Opportunity Regarding Review of Community Development Block Grant Procurement Policy
Received the attached correspondence from Sherri Martin, Bureau Chief, Bureau of Small Cities and Rural Communities. The Department of Economic Development (EOC) has reviewed the County’s Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Procurement Policy which was adopted on September 2, 2017. The policy complies with the requirements of Title 2, Code of Federal Regulations, Sections 200.317-200.326, Sections 255.0525 and 287.055, F.S. and Rule 73C-23.0051(3), Florida Administrative Code. The policy is approved for use in conjunction with the County’s CDBG subgrant activities.
Adherence to the procurement policy is required to avoid DEO’s disapproval of a procurement or resulting contract using CDBG funds. Any revisions to this approved policy are to be submitted to the DEO for review and written approval prior to implementation. This letter also documents the County’s compliance with Special Conditions 1 through 7 of the referenced subgrant agreement.
Hugh Brown, General Counsel, Florida Housing Finance Corporation (Florida Housing), notified Hernando County that Florida Housing has scored and ranked the Hammock Ridge II/2017-018C within the funding range to receive a 2017 Housing Credit allocation.
