Impact Statement

Purpose of Proposed Legislation and Background Information

The City of Portland, through the Portland Housing Bureau (PHB), has an existing intergovernmental agreement (IGA) with Multnomah County for the Joint Office of Homeless Services (JOHS). The City intends to amend the IGA to authorize the City Council approved FY22-23 budget allocation to the JOHS as set forth in this fourteenth amendment. The revised Exhibit H includes funding specific to responding to the emergency shelter, housing and rental assistance support needs by households experiencing homelessness and financial loss due to COVID-19.

Financial and Budgetary Impacts

Execution of the fourteenth amendment to the IGA will result in $40,348,547 in general and federal funds from the PHB budget being directed to Multnomah County JOHS for FY22-23. It includes $37,728,252 in City Funds and $2,620,295 of federal funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The JOHS intends to receive and subcontract amended funds for the provision of homeless services and permanent housing placement activities to people experiencing homelessness in the City of Portland and Multnomah County.

Community Impacts and Community Involvement

This Council item authorizes an amendment for the FY22-23 budget to the existing IGA between the City and the Multnomah County Department JOHS that has been reviewed, discussed and approved before City Council through its FY22-23 budget process. The authorization of an amendment to the IGA is a largely internal activity to city government processes and the transfer of funds from the City to the JOHS to subcontract for homeless services is consistent with the purpose of the IGA. Council’s action has low potential for controversy and a high level of support from the community.

100% Renewable Goal

Approval of the amendment does not impact the City’s total renewable energy use.

Budget Office Financial Impact Analysis

Funding has been allocated for this purpose in the Housing Bureau’s FY 2022-23 Adopted Budget. This does not include American Rescue Plan Act resources budgeted in Special Appropriations.
