FY 2011 Annual Action Plan (Action Plan: One Year Use of Funds -- III.C.2.)

The rating factors and corresponding points used to rate applications follow:

  • Cost Effectiveness (maximum possible points - 49)
  • Program Impact (maximum possible points - 49)
  • Target Area within a Designated Renewal Community (maximum possible points - 2)

Total Maximum Points: 100

Owner- and renter-occupied single-family units as well as multi-family housing units are eligible.  Funds expended on rental unts require a 50 percent dollar match from the landlord/owner and every renter-occupied residence must be made available and affordable for occupancy by low-to-moderate income persons for a period of five years.  The applicant will be responsible for tracking availability and affordability of these units for this period.


EVALUATION CRITERIA
Cost Effectiveness

The cost per disabled person benefiting will be calculated.  The lowest cost per disabled person benefiting will be determined among the applications and that applicant will receive 49 points.  Each applicant will then be scored relative to the lowest cost per person.

Determined by the following formula:
Cost Effectiveness Pts. =
Lowest cost per disabled person benefiting /
Applicant cost per disabled person benefiting x 49
Program Impact

Measured by the expected duration of a disability for each person with a disability.  The duration is measured as follows: 1) more than 5 years, 2) between 2 and 5 years, and 3) less than 2 years.  A household will not qualify where the disability of a person is expected to be for a period of less than 2 years.  If over a 2-year period, weights will be assigned to each disabled person: for more than 5 years - a weight of 10; between 2 and 5 years - a weight of 5; for less than 2 years - a weight of 1.

Determined by the following formula:

Program Impact Pts. =
Combined weight of persons in each household /
Number of households x 30   x  49
Target Area within a Designated Renewal Community

Applicants whose entire target area(s) is within a renewal community will receive 2 points.

Tie Breaker

Highest percentage of low and extremely low income persons.
