The Los Angeles City Council approved CF 22-0876-S2 on June 28, 2023 to obligate funds to projects admitted to the Affordable Housing Managed Pipeline (AHMP). This transmittal enabled projects to obtain funding commitments from the City making them competitive for an application to the California Department of Housing and Community Development's SuperNOFA by July 12, 2023.
Since the passage of that transmittal, Harmony Seniors, an 83 unit project located at 11416 W. Burbank Boulevard Los Angeles, CA 91601, in Council District 2, completed applications for outside funding. Given that Harmony Seniors has already been admitted to the AHMP and plans to apply to the SuperNOFA in the next few weeks, it is necessary that the Housing Department obligate funds to the Harmony Seniors project, already awarded to admittance to the pipeline.
I MOVE that the matter of the Council’s action on June 28, 2023 relative to the 2021 and 2022 Affordable Housing Managed Pipeline (AHMP) Project approvals for the 2023 Round 2 Multifamily Finance Super NOFA funding (CF 22-0876-S2) BE AMENDED to:
