GEOGRAPHIC DISTRIBUTION OF RESOURCES AND LOCATION OF EXPENDITURES

All projects were undertaken in eligible areas or were the benefit was principally to low and moderate

income persons. No distribution of funds was based on race need, due to the fact that no racial or

ethnic group has a disproportionately greater need for any income category in comparison to the needs

of that category as a whole although most of the funds are targeted to low income areas. The

geographic distribution of most activities is related to the nature of the benefit they are designed to

have.

LOCATION OF HOPWA PROJECTS

City of San Juan, Puerto Rico

2011-2012 Annual Action Plan

Funds for HOPWA projects were awarded to eligible entities and Municipalities through a competitive

funding process. All HOPWA project sponsors for activities in the metropolitan area are selected through

a competitive process which is coordinated by a committee designated by the Director of Housing of the

Municipality of San Juan. Notices of funding availability are sent to all agencies that have applied for

HOPWA funds in the past and to any other interested agency that provide services to people with AIDS

in the metropolitan area. The HOPWA application and review process ensures that all project sponsors

are eligible along with their proposed activities. Tenant based rental assistance funds are assigned to

municipalities taking into consideration the need, the fiscal and administrative history, waiting list, and

past performance. Due to the characteristics of the HOPWA program funds were distributed to all

eligible municipalities and sub grantees in the EMA area. The HOPWA section of the CAPER include

maps of the specific location were funds were disbursed.

LOCATION OF ESG PROJECT

The ESG Funds were used to support La Casa de Nuestra Gente, a homeless shelter located in Muñoz

Rivera Avenue #875.

The Project is located in Census Tract 6600.02 an area were 69.89% of its population is considered low

income.

Igualdad Court II Santuce 00250.02

SELF EVALUATION

We believe that the City complied with most of the goals established in the Action Plan 2009-2010. The

accomplishment in producing affordable housing with HOME and CDBG funds during the reporting

period was also significant. Procedural changes and new approaches were adopted in order to make the

program more attractive to the private sector, without losing perspective of its basic objectives and

futures years.

Most activities were completed or initiated and will be completed during the current year. There were

other areas in which performance exceeded the projection and the expectations such as supportive

services to persons with low income.

The HUD level of funding for the community development programs has decreased during the past

years; the City has been able to increase its revenues in order to cope with the ever increasing demand

of citizens for more and better services.

SELF EVALUATION OF THE CBDG PROGRAM

We understand that the use of CDBG funds by the City of San Juan had an impact on the identified need

included in the Consolidated Plan.

Process used in the development of the consolidated plan

City of San Juan, Puerto Rico

2011-2012 Annual Action Plan

Between January and April 2011, the CDBG office and the Interagency Committee held multiple

meetings to consult with stakeholders, citizens, and review new data and comments from interested

parties in order to prepare the Consolidated Plan.

Summary of the Citizen Participation Process

During the preparation of the Consolidated Plan, the Citizen the Participation Plan was revised and

implemented in accordance with Title I of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, as

amended, and Title 24, Section 91.105, of the Code of Federal Regulations. Implementation of this Plan

enabled the connection between the Municipality, for-profit and not-for-profit organizations, and

individual citizens, deemed crucial to the development of an appropriate and successful Consolidated

Plan. The following section of the Citizen Participant Plan was revised:

� Document Retention Policy

� Identification of Agencies to be Consulted during Consolidated Plan Preparation

The Municipal Government posted a Notice of Public Hearing on February 1, 2011 edition of El Vocero (a

newspaper of Island-wide circulation), inviting the public to attend the public hearings. Two public

hearings were held. Both meeting were held on February 15, 2011, at the Gualberto Rabel Integrated

Services Center, in Santurce. As established in the published agenda the first meeting began at 10:00

a.m. and the second at 2:00 in the afternoon. To facilitate public participation there were a translator

and a sign language interpreter present. The meetings were attended by 52 individuals, who were

provided with questionnaires for the identification of needs particular to the population served by their

organizations. This was followed by a presentation of the Consolidated Plan process, including:

objectives; description of the Plan, the planning process and its integration; the community consultation

process; identification of needs; design of strategies; and the Action Plan. The consultation process was

explained further, to include the legal framework, objectives, and the following beneficiaries of

participating programs: persons with low and moderate income, elderly persons, persons with physical

and mental disabilities, homeless persons, and persons with HIV/AIDS. The Community Development

Block Grant program, its national objectives, and eligible activities were presented to attendees. Also

presented were the HOME, ESG and HOPWA programs. The RFP of each program was explained and

copies of the proposal guides were distributed. Copy of the presentation used during the meeting is

included in the appendix section of the plan. All the comments received during the public hearing were

addressed directly during the meeting. A list of the comments received during the hearings is included

in the appendix section.

The Interagency Committee held a meeting to discuss and evaluate the needs that had been identified

during the consultation process. The results of this meeting led to the establishment of priorities and

activities to be included in the Action Plan. The process of planning was completed in this meeting, with

the delineation of the planning process and the establishment of a methodology.

A committee was established for the evaluation of the CDBG proposals presented by non profit and

municipal agencies. On March 2011 this Committee held a meeting to evaluate the proposals presented

by the community. Proposals were evaluated for compliance and rated according to the requirements

and thresholds established by the guidelines. The proposals selected for funding are included in the

2011 action plan.

On April 13, 2011 the Municipality informed the citizen of the availability of the draft plan. The public

notice was published on El Vocero, a newspaper of general circulation.

Public Comments

The City received comments from different agencies regarding the needs of the communities.

Information and comments presented by the agencies were incorporated into the consolidated Plan.

The appendix section of this document includes copies of these letters from consulted agencies and

entities and the comments received from citizens.

Efforts made to broaden public participation

The purpose of the Citizen Participation Plan of the Municipality of San Juan is to promote the

participation of citizens in the preparation of the Consolidated Plan, including its implementation,

substantial amendments and Annual Performance Report.

24


City of San Juan, Puerto Rico

2011-2012 Annual Action Plan

This has been achieved mainly through the notices in general circulation newspapers 15 days prior to

the hearings. In addition, the Municipality has an Interdepartmental Committee composed by

representatives from the different municipal departments that assist by promoting the activities of this

program among the different offices and departments. An all-out effort was made to advertise all of the

public hearings. A certified American Sign Language Interpreter was made available to increase

participation of deaf persons.

San Juan provided information to citizens, public agencies and other interested parties, including those

most affected, on the submission of the Consolidated Plan including grant amounts, proposed projects,

program income and the estimated amount of funds that will benefit low- and moderate-income

persons. In addition the public was encouraged to review all Plan information and submit its comments

Housing Opportunity Act of 1990, and revised under the Housing and Community Development Act of

1992. The HOPWA program provides states and localities with resources and incentives to devise long-

term comprehensive strategies for meeting the housing needs of low-income persons with acquired

immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) or related diseases and their families. This program authorizes

entitlement grants and competitively awarded grants for housing assistance and services. Pursuant to

federal regulations implementing the AIDS Housing Opportunity Act of 1990, the City of San Juan (City),

as the municipality with the largest population, serves as the grantee for HOPWA funds, on behalf of the

San Juan EMSA. To attend the need of this population the City works with all levels of government,

service providers, consumers and the private sector in developing resources and services, particularly

$1,806,368 from the State HOPWA program.

ESG Program

The Emergency Shelter Grant program is funded under the Stewart B. McKinney Homeless Assistance

Act. Funding from the program is established on a formula basis equal to the percentages allocated to

that of the CDBG program for states, metropolitan cities, and urban counties. The purpose of the ESG

program is to provide assistance necessary to bring buildings into a suitable condition so they may be

used as emergency shelters for homeless persons, to develop and implement homeless prevention

2011-2012 Annual Action Plan

activities, to provide certain essential services for homeless persons and to maintain and operate

shelters.

As a grantee for the ESG funds the City of San Juan will use the ESG funds to fund Casa Nuestra Gente. A

total of $629,766 will be used for the operating cost of the City’s shelter for the homeless known as Casa

Nuestra Gente that provides different services to the homeless population of San Juan. This shelter

provides transitional housing to 400 males, as well as year-round ambulatory services to over 1,800

persons.

It is the policy of the City to allocate all the ESG funds to this shelter because it is the largest project of

its type, serves the largest population, and there are other funding available for services under other

CPD and CoC programs. ESG funds will be distributed in the following categories:

Program Income

Service Category Allocation Percentage

Essential Services $188,929.80 30%

Operating Cost Shelter $346,371.30 55%

Administration $31,488.30 5%

Total $629,766.00

During this program year the Municipality anticipates program income from the proceeds of loan

awarded by COFECC. At this time the amount of program income to be received is not available. If any

program income is received from activities funded with CDBG they will be used for eligible activities of

the program.

Housing Act that authorized it) is the largest federal low-income housing assistance program. Families

who are awarded vouchers use them to help pay the cost of renting housing on the open market.

Because vouchers are provided to particular tenants to live where they choose, they are often referred

to as “tenant-based” assistance. Vouchers can also be used to help families buy homes. The City of San

CDBG Economic Development Activities

CDBG Activity # 8- Entrepreneur Development Center

City of San Juan, Puerto Rico

2011-2012 Annual Action Plan

The Centro de Desarrollo Empresarial - CDE, is a nonprofit division of the Economic Development

Department of the Municipality of San Juan. The purpose of the Center is to promote the creation

and/or retention of jobs and to promote economic development in San Juan. The objective of the

program is to generate and promote economic activity with the creation of more and better

employments to improve the quality of life in the community specifically for the low and moderate

income people of San Juan.

CDE is a Services Center that supports the entrepreneurial community of San Juan. Among the services

offered are the following: Interest Subsidy Program; Grants for micro enterprises; Tax Incentive

Program; Entrepreneur Capacitating Program; Business Advisory Program in Finance, Accounting; Legal

and Marketing; Business Alliance with the private sector and other government agencies; and

Participation on Business Activities. The program operates with combined funds.

Since its beginnings in 2001, the Center has created and retained approximately 3,282 jobs and the

promotion of over 540 small businesses. CDE has continued to experience an increased demand for the

services it offers within the small business areas of San Juan and with individuals with new business

initiatives. The current economic crisis that the country is experiencing has made the Center the only

alternative available for the small businesses owners to keep their operations and employments running

and for the low and moderate income citizens to be able to achieve their new business ventures and

become self-employed.

The Center’s main goal with the grants program for micro-enterprises is to create or retain 12 non

specialized jobs. Under this program businesses will receive a financial aid between $6,000 to $8,000 to

create or retain jobs. This amount is significantly lower than the amount of $35,000 for jobs required by

CDBG Activity # 9- CODEVISA

Corporación para el Desarrollo Empresarial y Cultural de la Isleta de San Juan (CODEVISA,CD) is a non-

profit corporation created within the General Corporation Laws of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. It

was created at the end of the year 1985 and is governed by a Board of Directors consisting of 12

members including a President, Vice-President, Secretary and Treasurer. Its members represent

different sectors of the community such as commercial, residential, government and public interest.

The Corporation promotes the economic, cultural, touristic and social development of the San Juan Islet.

On March 1999, CODEVISA became a Special Corporation, under the Autonomous Municipalities of the

Commonwealth of Puerto Rico Law. The purpose of the Corporation is to reduce the burdens of the

Government by promoting social welfare and economic development in the Islet and its environments.

During this program year funds will be provided to CODEVISA as a CBDO. It is our understanding that

CODEVISA qualifies as an eligible CBDO in compliance with CDBG regulations. Before executing the

grant agreement the organization will be certified as a CBDO. CBDO eligibility will be maintained on file

evidencing compliance with the regulation.

In order to achieve its purposes during the year 2011-12, the Corporation will: Provide free

transportation to residents, private and government employees, local and international visitors in the

San Juan Islet.

CODEVISA will provide qualified licensed drivers and keep a record on the necessary vehicle inspections

as required by state and federal laws. It also designs and maintains complete and accurate records of

51


City of San Juan, Puerto Rico

2011-2012 Annual Action Plan

the trolleys, including information on the maintenance, inspections, repairs, use, and accidents.

CODEVISA,CD will retain sixteen (16) job, out of which nine (9) will be held by low income persons.

In addition CODEVISA will continue the implementation of the following activities:

� Offer free transportation twelve (12) hours a day, seven (7) days a week in the area of Old San

Juan, covering three (3) routes: Casa Alcaldia, El Morro and San Cristobal forts, Puerto Rico

Capitol building, with a seven (7) vehicle fleet.

� Celebrate the Old San Juan SOFO Culinary Fest twice a year. More than 38 restaurants

throughout the historic district take part in the Old San Juan Culinary Fest. A number of streets

are closed to traffic and tables are set up to create a giant open-air café atmosphere and the

chefs of the surrounding restaurants pull all stops to make sure the food is extraordinary.

Visitors choose from an array of appetizers, entries, drinks and desserts. In addition, musical and

dance groups perform at various stages set up throughout Old San Juan, and strolling musicians

serenade with traditional island music. There are tastings and exhibitions by both master and

future chefs.

� Promote Outside Café's - The intent of this program is to increase jobs opportunities and

restaurant's sales while enhancing the streetscape and festive air to downtown activities.

CODEVISA is the administrator of this program in accordance with the Municipality of San Juan

regulations. (Attachment #3)

� Old San Juan Street Beautification Project – Maintenance of San Justo and Norzagaray Streets in

alliance with Old San Juan Business Owners.

CODEVISA's activities will benefit more than three hundred (300) businesses within the Islet of San Juan;

helping to maintain the employment of over approximately two thousand workers (2,000). Most of this

workforce is mainly low- and moderate-income persons. Businesses in the area are restaurants, retail,

art galleries, souvenirs shops, small hotels, and artisans among others.

The trolley transportation system in the Islet of San Juan benefits over eight hundred eighty thousand

persons (880,000) a year. It is used by residents, employees and visitors alike. Having a safe and reliable

public transportation system gives all members of the community access to shopping, schools, medical

appointments, recreation, museums and more. Besides economics and accessibility benefits, it's also

good for the environment. The trolley system will reduce the number of private autos, cabs and shuttle

buses needed to move over 1 million visitors. Old San Juan is the Caribbean's number one embarkation

point for cruise ships, with over 1.3 million cruise passengers; cruise ships docks right at the edge of the

52


City of San Juan, Puerto Rico

2011-2012 Annual Action Plan

Old City. The City has recently evaluated the restriction and elimination traffic into the historic city. As

part of that draft study, the trolley system would be the only transportation allowed. Therefore, the

demand for public transportation is likely to increase dramatically

To demonstrate compliance with the CDBO requirements we prepared the following table in which we

indicate the requirements established by 24 CFR 570.204 and how CODEVISA complies:

the participants to control their health condition. It has all the assistance services of social

workers, nurses, doctors, psychologists, psychiatrists, assistive personnel, nutrition services

(breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack), independent living skills, educational activities, recreational

therapy, among other. This project has the capacity to place 12 persons in semi-private

accommodations.

� Centro de Acogida (Acceptance Center)- The Acceptance Center offers residential treatment

services (Post-Detox) for the homeless person with mental health disorders, (among these use

and abuse of controlled substances and/or alcohol). The Center offers services 7 days a week,

24 hours a day for a maximum of a year. The purpose is to offer prevention services, as well as

psychosocial treatment for the homeless population.

The served population confronts severe problems of chronic homelessness, alcohol and or drug

dependence, risk of getting HIV/AIDS and other diseases related to such like Hepatitis A, B or C

among others. The center has established a continuous care model among the components that

provide recuperation services for the homeless people.

At the residence, specialized treatment is provided by multidisciplinary teams, which prepare an

individual intervention plan for each client based upon the nature and severity of his condition.

This plan takes a year of follow-up, covering individual and family aspects by using a therapeutic

community focus, and by preventing a relapse.

The capacity of the Center is of 72 beds (60 male, 12 females). The participants receive case

management services by social workers; Psychologists, psychiatrists, and nurses provide

physical and mental services. Recreational services, occupational therapy, socio-educational

activities, food services (breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack), and transportation are also provided.

Services also include provision of hygiene articles, clothing, showers, and laundry service. Interagency

services are coordinated in order to cover the particular needs of the population.

During the fiscal year 2011-2012 we seek to offer services to 250 participants in shelter (males) and

through outpatient services; and provide supportive services to 1,000 homeless people.

The Municipality anticipates that each project or activity funded by the HOME, CDBG, and ESG programs

will fall under one of the three objectives, which relate back to the statutory purposes of the programs:

� Creating a Suitable Living Environment: In general, this objective relates to activities that are

designed to benefit communities, families or individuals by addressing issue in their living

environment. It relates to activities that are intended to address a wide range of issues faced by

LMI persons from physical problems with their environment, such as poor quality infrastructure,

to social issues such as crime prevention, literacy, or elderly health services.

� Providing Decent Housing: The activities that typically would be found under this objective are

designed to cover the wide range of housing possible under CDBG, HOME or ESG. This objective

focuses on housing programs where the purpose of the program is to meet individual family or

community needs and not programs where housing is an element of a larger effort, since they

would be more appropriately reported under "Creating a Suitable Living Environment".

� Creating Economic Opportunities: This objective applies to types of activities related to

economic development, commercial revitalization, or job creation.

For each objective selected for a specific project, one of three outcome categories that best reflect what

is expected to be achieved by funding that activity will be chosen. The three outcome categories are:

79


City of San Juan, Puerto Rico

2011-2012 Annual Action Plan

� Improving Availability or Accessibility: This outcome category applies to activities that make

services, infrastructure, public services, housing, or shelter available or accessible to low- and

moderate-income people, including persons with disabilities. In this category, accessibility does

not refer only to physical barriers, but also to making the affordable basics of daily living

available and accessible (i.e., increased access to various services, housing units, or facilities) to

low- and moderate-income people where they live. Note: Where a service or facility did not

exist, the assistance provided results in "new" access to that service or facility. Where a service

or facility was limited in size or capacity, and the assistance expanded the existing service or

facility, the result would be improved access.

� Improving Affordability: This outcome category applies to activities that provide affordability in

a variety of ways in the lives of low- and moderate-income people. It can include creating or

maintaining affordable housing, basic infrastructure hookups, or services such as transportation

or daycare.

� Improving Sustainability: This outcome applies to projects where the activity or activities are

aimed at improving communities or neighborhoods, helping to make them livable or viable by

providing benefit to persons of low- and moderate-income or by removing or eliminating slums

or blighted areas, through multiple activities or services that sustain communities or

neighborhoods.

In the context of HUD's framework, sustainability is specifically tied to activities that are meant to

ensure that a particular geographic area as a whole (neighborhood, downtown, etc) remains viable. It is

targeted at supporting a specific physical location. Availability is related to making services,

infrastructure, housing, or shelter available or accessible to individual residents/beneficiaries.

The three objectives are combined with the three outcome categories to come up with a matrix of nine

outcome statements (see the Outcome Statement Matrix, following).

Geographic Distribution of Funds

Description of Areas

All of the activities included in the 2011 Action Plan are allocated geographically to meet the needs of

the low income residents. As required by the regulation most of the activities and initiatives are

targeted in census tracts that have high percentages of low and moderate-income population or need.

The City certifies that 100% of the activities will benefit low income persons and will be used in areas of

minority concentration.

Maps showing the geographic areas of San Juan where CPD funds will be allocated are included in the

following pages.

*Although this activity is located in an area that is not predominately low income the combine service area

LMI % is 57%.

** Although this activity is located in an area that is not predominately low income 100% of the population

is low income

By directing significant assistance to those areas found to be the most economically and physically

distressed in the City, San Juan will greatly increase the measurable and effective impact of these federal

dollars by enhancing the quality of life in its most blighted neighborhoods.

No distribution of funds was based on race need, due to the fact that no racial or ethnic group has a

disproportionately greater need for any income category in comparison to the needs of that category as

a whole although most of the funds are targeted to low income areas.

ESG funds will be allocated to Casa NuestraGente. This facility is located in Census Tract 06600.2 with a

69.89% of low income persons. The area where the facility is located has a high incidence of homeless

persons.

The allocation of CDBG funds is based on a competitive process that considers the need of the citizens as

presented in the public hearings and the priorities established by the Municipality. As demonstrated in

the previous table and map the funds are allocated were most needed.

Priority will be given to HOME projects located in predominantly low and moderate income areas.

86


Rationale for allocating investment HOPWA funds

City of San Juan, Puerto Rico

2011-2012 Annual Action Plan

Funds for HOPWA projects are awarded to eligible entities and Municipalities through a competitive

funding process. All HOPWA project sponsors for activities in the metropolitan area are selected

through a competitive process which is coordinated by a committee designated by the Director of

Housing of the Municipality of San Juan. Notices of funding availability are sent to all agencies that have

applied for HOPWA funds in the past and to any other interested agency that provide services to people

with AIDS in the metropolitan area. The HOPWA application and review process ensures that all project

sponsors are eligible along with their proposed activities. Tenant based rental assistance funds are

assigned to municipalities taking into consideration the need, the fiscal and administrative history,

waiting list, and past performance.

Copies of the application and selection factors are included in the appendix section of this document.

Actions to be taken during 2011 to address obstacle to meet underserved needs

The primary obstacle to meeting the underserved needs in the City is the lack of available funding to the

Municipality and to the various non-profit agencies the partners with in serving the low and moderate-

income residents of San Juan. As entitlement grants shrink or remain level-funded the cost of delivering

services and completing projects increases, creating, in the recent past and present, an ever widening

spread of cost and available funds. Mirroring this trend is the increasing difficulty in leveraging funds

through municipal and private resources, also decreasing or stagnant in recent times. Other obstacles

and actions to remove them are included in the following table:

OBSTACLE ACTION TO REMOVE OBSTACLE

Funding Availability-Absence or lack of sufficient funds to

provide or sustain services

Funding Accessibility-Inability to access funding available for

such purposes, but for which procurement remains hampered

or unsuccessful

The principal action to be taken during program year 2011 is the

provision of additional funding for the operation of the San Juan

Office in Washington D.C. The Office is located near Congress and is

Puerto Rico’s first municipal office in D.C.

The Federal Program office will be reinforced to allow the City staff

to prepare proposals in response to RFP and NOFA to request

additional funding to seek additional funding for services.

This office will continue to provide technical assistance to human

Actions to address the need of the public housing residents

The City administration is committed to the Public Housing residents and will continue to provide

essential services needed. The City government has historically provided the majority of basic public

services to residents of Public Housing. To maximize and expedite the rendering of services, the City has

created the San Juan Integra Center. This is a One-Stop service center that coordinates the various

direct and indirect services provided by Municipal Departments and Offices to residents of all public

housing projects located within the Municipality. In most cases services are provided on the premises of

public housing developments, or at least in locations immediately accessible to residents of public

housing.

City of San Juan, Puerto Rico

2011-2012 Annual Action Plan

Homelessness is a problem that can affect all sectors of the society. The basic strategy to reduce and

address chronic homelessness is to prevent its occurrence. Unfortunately, more persons continue

to fall into homelessness every day. There is not a “one size fits all” solution for the chronic

homeless persons. The prevention efforts to be implemented as a result of this plan are oriented

to match the level and type of services to the distinct needs of the population experiencing or at-

risk of homelessness. Three distinctions can be made: 1: Youth at risk, 2: Persons who face

short-term, unanticipated hardship that leads to homelessness, and 3: Persons who have long -

term disabilities or chronic health issues that require ongoing support to maintain stability and a

productive life.

Prevention efforts are the most cost-effective way to reduce the number of persons that will

become homeless and eventually chronic homeless. Homelessness is not an isolated issue a nd in

most of the occasions is accompanied by other multiple problems and conditions. Thus, the costs

associated to provide housing and to address the damages caused by the experience of

homelessness are much higher than the costs of simply preventing its occurrence.

Puerto Rico does not have a discharge policy that prohibit publicly funded institutions releasing

persons into homelessness As the stock of permanent supportive housing increases, the need to

discharge into short-term shelters or into homelessness will be decreased and eventually

eliminated. In actually, the emergency shelter system is one of the institutions most likely to

release persons into homelessness. Other publicly funded institutions known to release persons

into homelessness include jails, prisons, hospitals and mental health and alcohol and drug

treatment centers.

The main source of funds to be available during program year 2011 will be the Homelessness

Prevention and Rapid Rehousing Program. For program year 2011 the Municipality will have a

total of $1,693,616 for prevention and rapid rehousing. As a public policy for the implementation

of the HPRP the mayor determined that the program will be administered and implemented by

the City Offices and Departments. Specifically the following structure is used:

The Family and Community Department will provide assistance to individuals and families who are

experiencing homelessness (residing in emergency or transitional shelters, mental facilities, jail, on the street,

etc.) and need temporary assistance in order to obtain housing and retain it (rapid re-housing). The

population to be served includes:

� Individuals and/or families with or without children that are homeless and live in

emergency shelters. When individuals that reside at the emergency shelters La Casa de

NuestraGente and the Centro de Acogida, meet the time limit of the shelter, or

transitional housing they are moved towards permanent housing. If permanent housing

is not available at the time of discharge, the individuals will be relocated in a hotel for a

maximum period of 30 days while housing is available for them.

� Families that request emergency shelter and there is no space available. If there is no

adequate space at shelters for individuals, such will be evaluated by a social worker

whom will determine the eligibility of the individual to receive the voucher of payment

for the hotel for up to 30 days.

� Participants that have found a house for rent but such are not immediately available for

the participant to move in. The participants will be placed in a hotel for a maximum

period of 30 days as long as the housing is available before such 30 days expire. Once

the participants are placed in a hotel such will be referred to the Municipal Department

of Housing.

� Individuals that are referred to a shelter where there is a waiting list for the availability

of beds and there is no space available will be placed in a hotel for up to 30 days. Before

the 30 days are over, the homeless person will be placed at La Casa de NuestraGente or

at the Centro de Acogida. They will be referred to the Municipal Department of Housing

to coordinate placement in permanent housing.

� Ex-convicts. The social worker assigned to Programa Mano Amiga, in coordination with

the pre-discharge office of the Correction Administration, will serve as a link to identify

convicts that will be released out of jail, that are without housing, and therefore have no

place to go once out of jail, including the lack of emergency shelter availability. The

social worker is in charge of coordinating the placement of this person in a hotel. Once

placed in a hotel, such will immediately be referred to the Department of Housing for a

rapid re-housing evaluation such that once the 30 day period at the hotel has covered,

the individual be placed in a hosing for a period ranging for up to 18 months.

� Individuals with Mental Health problems, HIV, or addiction to illegal substances. Persons

without housing that are under these conditions need assistance to pay the security

deposit. They will be offered the payment of the security deposit for water and

electricity utilities in order for them to be placed in permanent hosing. Pre -qualified

cases will be referred to the Municipal Department of Housing to complete the location

and evaluation process.

� Individuals and families that graduate from transitional housing. The social worker will

evaluate the case according to the Program criteria and will refer the case to the

Municipal Housing Deparment for evaluation and placement in housing for a period of

time ranging from 1 to 18 months. Assistance may be offered to search for housing in

the community that meets all of HUD’s requirements, and case management.

� Individuals and families that have lost their housing due to disasters such as floods and

fires. Persons that have completely lost their housing due to fires or floods and become

homeless can be placed in hotel or rapid housing. These families or individuals will be

identified through the Emergency Management Department of the Municipality, which

will certify the condition. The social worker of the Department of Family and Community

will work on the placement of the person in an emergency hotel for a period of up to 30

days, and will refer such case to the Municipal Housing Department.

� Homeless veterans. The Department of Family and Community, through its Veteran’s

Affairs office, in coordination with the Veteran’s Hospital will offer re-lodging services to

homeless veterans that will be discharged from a hospital in two weeks. They may be

placed in a hotel for up to 30 days. Such will be referred to the Municipal Department of

Housing for evaluation for housing.

� Domestic Violence Victims. Women and or other families that are victims of domestic

violence that seek lodging services at the La Casa de NuestraGente Program, will be

placed in a hotel, for up to 30 days, after all reasonable arrangements that have been

carried out to place such in housing have failed. During their stay at a hotel the families

or individuals will be referred to the Department of Housing of the Municipality for

evaluation, they will be provided with case management in order to be relocated in an

emergency shelter for victims of domestic violence before the 30 days expire.

ELIGIBILITY DETERMINATION, HOUSING RELOCATION AND STABILIZATION SERVICES- The

Housing Department through its Housing Choice Voucher Program will undertake the eligibility

determination, housing relocation and stabilization services of the Homeless Prevention

Program.

component of the HPRP to be administered by the City.

99


City of San Juan, Puerto Rico

Centro de Acogida, centers operated by the Family and Community Department of San

Juan. These facilities provide the opportunity to the homeless to receive the integrated

and multiphase services that assist the particular needs and facilitate the reincorporation

to the community. The problem of the homeless population requires a community effort

and the interaction of various agencies since the problems that these present have

various dimensions: health, social, economic, housing, spiritual, educational, employment,

among others.

100


City of San Juan, Puerto Rico

2011-2012 Annual Action Plan

The first step to end homelessness is to quickly re-house everyone who becomes

homeless- open the back door out of homelessness. Different subpopulations of homeless

persons require different housing strategies. The two major groups to consider are

homeless families and homeless single adults. Both groups face system-based barriers to

“getting out the back door.” To address the need of the homeless, the City of San Juan

and its partners has the following housing choices available to the homeless:

Emergency Shelter

Emergency Shelter facilities provide a safe and decent alternative to the streets for up to

90 days for a family or individual who is homeless, in addition to providing access to case

management, health care assessment and referral services. This emergency placement

includes meals, sleeping arrangements, and access to phone and mail services. Before the

conclusion of the 90-day stay limitation, each family or individual will have completed an

assessment to determine self-sufficiency goals and housing needs. A family can then be

referred to transitional housing, move to permanent supportive housing, or move into

other low-income housing. Each client agrees to the conditions of stay within the facility

and agrees to work on a case plan designed to make self-sufficiency possible.

serve the Homeless Population of the City of San Juan.

psychologists, nurses, doctors, psychiatrists, nutritionists, and assistive personnel. Transportation

and recreational activities as well as educational activities are among other services offered.

Transitional Housing

Transitional housing is a type of supportive housing used to facilitate the movement of homeless

individuals and families to permanent housing. Basically, it is housing in which homeless persons

live for up to 24 months and receive supportive services that enable them to live more

independently. The supportive services may be provided by the organization managing the

housing or coordinated by them and provided by other public or private agencies. Transitional

housing can be provided in one structure or several structures, at one site or in multiple

structures at scattered sites. The following table summarizes the transitional housing projects

Strategy to Reduce Chronic Homelessness

The City of San Juan’s 10-year Plan to reduce Chronic Homelessness is based on the prior experiences of

the City and the non-profit organizations dealing with the problems of the population. The

Department of The Family and Community of the Municipal Government of San Juan has assumed

the responsibility of offering and facilitating integrated, comprehensive services to homeless

persons who are mentally ill, including substance abusers.

The Department provides direct services by developing and implementing a cooperative,

comprehensive and specialized system for such population. The Department has established

partnerships with community and faith-based organizations, recognizing that these have assumed

a portion of the State’s responsibilities for treatment and protection of populations with special

needs. The participation of these organizations is vital to the improvement of quality of life.

One of the Mayor’s programmatic items is the establishment of partnerships, and the

development of community and faith-based organizations into a formal system which provides

continuity of services to this special population. The objective is to integrate the collaborative

and specialized system which complements the strategies for social action and program services.

The “Protocol for Services”, developed by the Department in 2001 to attend the needs of

homeless persons, is based on cumulative experience and knowledge as well as on Treatment

Improvement Protocols for substance abuse developed by the Substance Abuse and Mental

Health Services Administration (SAMSHA). The result of the implementation of this protocol is a

reduction in the number of homeless and chronic homeless persons in San Juan.

The Service Protocol for Chronic Homeless Persons integrates the knowledge of various

disciplines which form a professional, scientific system for treatment based on best practices.

108


City of San Juan, Puerto Rico

2011-2012 Annual Action Plan

Included are administrators, physicians, nurses, and other health care professionals. The system

is built within the conceptual frameworks of treatment, prevention and law used to intervene for

early attention and appropriate referral, evaluation, and services.

This protocol also provides a general vision of the various classes of treatment, follow-through,

and services available according to a person’s condition. It also gives service providers the rules

and procedures to be followed for adequate care, and for adequate attention and respect for

treatment and recovery rights of patients and service consumers. In addition, it provides

instructions on how to access other services. The Ten-Year Plan to End Chronic Homelessness is

built on the concept of the existing Continuum of Care Strategy modified to include the Housing

Components and the City

Model for specialized treatment of the Homeless as described in the following diagram :

109


The protocol is divided in seven levels as explained in the following pages:

Level 1 (Identification, evaluation and referral)

114


Confidentiality

City of San Juan, Puerto Rico

2011-2012 Annual Action Plan

Federal statutes, such as HIPAA, are enforced to guarantee privacy regarding health conditions,

thus preventing stigmas and discrimination. Prior to initiation of treatment, the participant is

required to authorize in writing such treatment, and is informed of the requirem ents to provide

necessary information to initiate and/or to continue such treatment.

This protocol has proven its effectiveness in reducing the number of homeless and chronic

homeless in San Juan City. The City understands that the implementation of this protocol shall be

continued in combination with other strategies and action steps that will improve it effectiveness.

To be successful in the implementation of the plan and to achieve the goals and outcomes,

reducing chronic homelessness, and making a greater positive difference in homeless person’s

lives will require additional coordination and collaboration. The implementation of the plan must

be based on flexibility, innovation, and reinvention of the current approaches.

The City of San Juan chronic homeless strategy is based on two major goals, described in the next

pages, and articulated in terms of action steps, responsible organizations and target dates. These

services are geared to retain and increase the number of chronically homeless persons in

emergency, transitional and permanent housing options and to better ascertain their needs to

improve planning, services, treatment options, as well as income and self-determination options.

These goals are:

� Goal 1- Close the front door -Reduce the number of persons that become chronic homeless.

� Goal 2- Open the back door- Increase the number of chronic homeless that are rehabilitated and

obtain permanent housing and independent living.

These strategic goals are consistent with our past performance and provide continuity with our

prior action steps, they heighten and expand the impact areas we have focused, and effectively

address the major obstacles we have recognized.

The success of the Plan will depend on the availability of resources for implementation and the

willingness of the partners to implement the recommended actions that will have an effect of

ending chronic homelessness rather than perpetuating it. The City of San Juan Coalition for

115


City of San Juan, Puerto Rico

2011-2012 Annual Action Plan

Continued Support for the Homeless has the knowledge, creativeness, and drive to make this Plan

a reality on the scale required for success. We believe that chronic homelessness can in fact be

ended when the social, political and moral will is strong enough.

These efforts, strategies and activities are explained in greater detail in the tables provided in the

forthcoming pages.

General Priorities

To reduce the number of chronic homeless, tremendous effort and tremendous resources are

needed. The City government cannot undertake this task alone. Collaboration and integration is

needed. It is important to improve relationships and partnerships among State government

agencies, municipal departments, non-profits and institutions in order to leverage funding

available for permanent supportive housing. Most of the resources available are directed to

outreach and essential services. Prevention and permanent housing receive the least resources

although they can be the key to the reduction of the number of chronic homeless so retooling of

the existing models are needed to achieve the goal of ending chronic homelessness. A strong

commitment from the stakeholders is critical and needed. Specifically the City expects the

following:

� Long-term commitment from the first planning steps to full implementation

� Staff time and energy

� Willingness to engage diverse stakeholders and forge new partnerships

� Ability to think creatively about old problems and existing resources

The 10-Year Plan to end chronic homelessness recognizes the importance of partnerships between

stakeholders and the task force considers them to be one of the critical components in the plan to develop

permanent solutions to homelessness.

Section 5- Other Actions

Action to reduce barriers to affordable housing

City of San Juan, Puerto Rico

2011-2012 Annual Action Plan

Predominant barriers for the development of affordable housing in San Juan continue to be,

among others, the high cost of real estate and extensive, costly and many times, bureaucratic

processes necessary to obtain mandatory state permits approvals. Considering the fact that, for

decades the predominant pattern of urban development within the Municipality was single -family

residential developments, the end result was the consumption of practically the totality of

available lands. Thus, the resulting scarcity of land for the development of single-family housing,

and the subsequent negative experiences with the development of high-density, high-rise social

interest housing has provoked a marginal affordable market supply.

To mitigate this problem the municipal government will provide developers with parcels of land,

property of the City to construct housing units. As stated in the previous version of this Plan, the

City of San Juan carried out a bid for the submittal of affordable housing development propos als

for various parcels located among the City limits. Unfortunately, none of the projects presented,

were found to be responsive to this segment of our housing market, as the proposed unit costs

surpassed those currently affordable to our low to moderate income families. Developers are

required to produce affordable housing for low-income families, as a condition to acquire lands

from the City. Another action the City will take is preparing an inventory of housing units

available in market that may be acquired by ours participants.

119


City of San Juan, Puerto Rico

2011-2012 Annual Action Plan

The following table identifies the barriers to affordable housing and the strategies to minimize

the problem:

BARRIER STRATEGY FOR AMELIORATION

Tax policies affecting land and other properties

Municipal taxes.

Land use controls and zoning ordinances.

Land use versus cost of land.

Building codes and consultation processes

Burdensome building permits requirements.

Fees and charges

Impact fees

Minimum salary requirements

Policies that affect the return on residential

investment

Increasing cost of construction materials.

Other Actions

High Cost of Rental Housing

High Cost of Housing Units

The Municipality will provide tax exemption (construction taxes) to developers

of affordable housing. For this purpose the Municipality will continue with

Ordinance NUM. 12. This local legislation provides local tax exemption to

affordable housing project.

The City, through its Housing and Urbanism Department, will continue its efforts

to overcome this barrier by considering the use of City-owned land, whenever

possible, for development as affordable housing. The City will provide land at

reduced costs to developers that will develop housing for low and moderate

income persons.

The City aggressively will support the purchase of land by the nonprofits, to

ensure long-term affordability. Given San Juan’s strong real estate market, the

vacant land would be permanently lost if nonprofits are not move quickly to

purchase and preserve the land for the development of affordable housing.

The City’s Urbanism Department has worked for many years to support zoning

policies that would promote incentives to encourage developers to provide

affordable housing. During this program year it is expected that the land use

plan of the City is finally approved. The Land Use plan provides multiple zoning

incentives that reduce the costs of development of Affordable Housing.

The municipal government will continue to support the permit office. This office

will expedite the endorsement process of affordable housing project.

Local Ordinance #12 provides State agencies will be encouraged to review their

impact fee policies on social housing projects. No amelioration is possible.

The City will work to eliminate any regulatory gaps by working with federal and

other agencies to identify problems and, where appropriate, to seek refinements

or waivers of regulations that impede efficient affordable housing production.

The Legislature of Puerto Rico will be made aware of the need to reduce import

duties on construction materials for affordable housing projects.

Rental subsidy will be offered to low and very low-income families reducing the

economic burden of the renting a housing unit.

HOME funds will be offered for the development of rental housing.

Homeownership subsidies will be offered to low and moderate-income families

to allow them to acquire a housing unit.

The City will work to reduce the resource gap by aggressively seeking out

additional federal, state and private resources to support its affordable housing

priorities

120


Action to Foster and Maintain Affordable Housing.

City of San Juan, Puerto Rico

2011-2012 Annual Action Plan

It is of vital importance in this Annual Plan to identify how well the City will foster and maintain

the quality and quantity of affordable housing units. The City fosters and maintains affordable

housing by using local and federal resources for the provision of rental, rehabilitation, acquisition

and new construction assistance through CDBG, HOME, HOPWA, and other housing programs to

implement these strategies. Additional resources include Section 8, Shelter Plus Care, SRO

Moderate Rehabilitation, and the Supportive Housing Program (SHP).

Development of affordable housing policy and programs is the responsibility of the Department of

Housing and Community Development and its different programs.

The following table shows the actions to be taken by the City of San Juan to foster and maintain

affordable housing:

PROBLEM

A large number of the single-family

homes within the City limits pre-date

1960 and are in need of rehabilitation

assistance.

A lack of buildable sites in the city or

unaffordable for the development of low

income housing.

Lack of affordable housing units for the

low income persons

Rents are not affordable to the very low

income persons

LOCAL PROGRAM THAT ADDRESS

THE PROBLEM

CDBG- Housing Rehabilitation Program will provide

rehabilitation assistance to low and moderate

income families for the rehabilitation of the Housing

Units. It is expected that a total of 152 units will be

rehabilitated during program year 2011.

HOME- Funds will be awarded for homeowner

Substantial Rehabilitation. It is expected that at least

6 units will be rehabilitated during this program year.

HOME- Grants will be awarded to developers for the

acquisition of land for the development of affordable

housing units. This will result in the reduction of the

sale price of the housing unit.

HOME- Grants will be awarded to developers for the

acquisition of land for the development of affordable

housing units. This will result in the reduction of the

sale price of the housing unit. It is expected that at

least 60 units will be developed using the HOME

funds.

Section 8 Program- The Municipality will enhance the

section 8 Homeownership option to allow very low

income families to acquire an affordable housing

unit.

Section 8 Program- The City will continue to provide

section 8 assistance to very low income persons. It is

expected that at least 500 families will received

rental opportunities to Homeless

population.

The City of San Juan will continue to undertake the following actions in order to comply with

current lead based paint regulations:

� The Municipal Department of Housing, along with the Code Enforcement Program, and

sub recipients must participate actively in educating the public regarding the LBP

Program, and in providing orientation to owners of priority houses that are targeted for

assessment and abatement efforts. Although temporary relocation is not anticipated,

both owners and tenants of priority housing will require orientation on the potential

risks of the assessment and abatement actions, legal rights and responsibilities, potential

health risks in the case of positive test results, lead poisoning examination procedures,

and treatment services if poisoning is determined.

� EPA-certified personnel assigned to the Department of Housing, and/or IPA-certified

contractors will undertake assessment and abatement expeditiously. LBP assessment

and abatement activities will be carried out consecutively, but once housing units with

LBP content requiring abatement work, and in which children under age 6 are residing

have been identified, abatement will be initiated on a first-come-first-served basis, as

funding permits.

� Contractors certified by the Puerto Rico Environmental Quality Board will carry out all

abatement work.

122


City of San Juan, Puerto Rico

2011-2012 Annual Action Plan

Program financing will be shared by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, the

Section 8 Program, the municipal CDBG, ESG and HOME programs, and by the Municipality of San

Juan funds. Blood tests for detection of lead poisoning are not available in Puerto Rico. Families

of children at risk will be referred to a medical facility, where a medical history will be compiled

and a physical examination will be performed. Children will be referred to the laboratory of the

Río Piedras Medical Center, where blood samples will be taken and conveyed to stateside labs for

analysis. Results will be returned to the laboratory at the Río Piedras Medical Center, where they

will be interpreted to the test subject. Children and adults determined to be lead-poisoned will be

treated through the Medical Center.

It is the goal of the Municipality of San Juan to continue to assess and abate lead -based paint

hazards. These activities will be intensified in order to continue the reduction of risks associated

with lead-based paint under current housing rehabilitation programs and other assisted housing

programs.

In addition to the actions to be taken to comply with the Lead Base Paint Regulations, the Code

Enforcement Program identifies dilapidated structures, which represent health and/or safety

hazard. This program is responsible for the identification and demolition of dilapidated structures

that may affect the health and safety of San Juan residents. Before advertising for a demolition

contract the City conduct a study by means of qualified environmentalists to determine the

presence of lead-based paint in the structures. If the study indicates the presence of lead-based

hazards specific requirements for the handling and disposition of the materials and rubble are

included in the demolition contract between the City and private contractors. According to Code

Enforcement Program data less than 6 cases per year had been detected with lead-based hazards.

In the Section 8 Program, landlords are required to disclose any knowledge regarding the

presence of lead-based paint in the housing units rented. Housing inspectors are alert to identify

the presence of lead-based hazards in their annual physical on inspections of properties occupied

by Section 8 tenants. It is expected that the section 8 program conducts at least 3,500 HQS

inspection that include the verification of deteriorated paint.

123


City of San Juan, Puerto Rico

2011-2012 Annual Action Plan

The Housing Rehabilitation program will conduct visual inspection and will comply with the

requirements of the lead based regulation.

Actions to reduce the number of families below the poverty line

The actions to reduce poverty during FY 2011-2012 evolve around a continued strategy to

provide, maintain and upgrade the housing stock and the creation of jobs for low and moderate –

income persons. As it has strived to achieve throughout this Consolidated Plan, the City will

continue to provide affordable alternatives for adequate and safe housing, so that a substantial

portion of participating family’s income does not have to be used to cover its housing payment.

On the other hand, the development of micro businesses, capital improvements and activiti es to

boost the economy continue to be the catalysts for job creation. As anti-poverty strategies must

include coordinated and effective efforts to ensure economic stability and satisfy basic needs, the

range of activities funded for the program year is one that covers every angle of the issue. These

include; education, economic assistance, utility assistance, housing rental assistance, orientation

and counseling for homeless, youth, drug abusers and persons with physical disabilities. Some of

the specific strategies planned for the year are:

� The HPRP program will reduce the rent and utilities cost of families at risk of becoming

homeless

� The San Juan Educational system will provide educational opportunities to low income

students.

� Continue provision of HOME Program economic assistance to low-income level families

with down payment and closing expenses in the acquisition of a home, including

homeownership under Section 8 (y) of the Housing Choice Voucher Program.

� Continue the construction of new housing for persons of low income. Furthermore, this

activity will continue generating employment opportunities pursuant to Section 3 of Title

I of NAHA, as amended.

� Continue the provision of economic assistance to homeowners to rehabilitate or

construct their housing units.

� Provide incentives to private investors for new construction in sectors with serious

economic and social problems. These incentives will be extended to the Enforcement

This program is responsible for the identification and demolition of dilapidated

structures that may affect the health and safety of San Juan residents. Before

advertising for a demolition contract, the City determines the presence of lead-based

hazards specific requirements for the handling and disposition of the materials and

rubble included in Enforcement Program data.

� Support the creation of non-profit organizations to encourage the participation of

communities in the construction and rehabilitation of affordable housing by Community

Housing Development Organizations (CHDOs).

� To develop community micro enterprises addressed to promote the economic

development activities in sectors with economic disadvantage.

� Continue with the identification and support of neighborhood groups and non-profit

organizations, which aim to create micro-businesses.

� The provision of education, health and recreational services to young persons and

children, courses on arts and crafts, as well as tutoring, are offered after school hours

through the Extended Hours program to students enrolled in the regular courses.

� Housing Rehabilitation Program funds to carry out limited rehabilitation or expansion of

at least ninety (156) existing housing units to extend their useful lives.

Actions to develop institutional structure and coordination

City of San Juan, Puerto Rico

2011-2012 Annual Action Plan

In carrying out most of the activities that comprises the Consolidated Plan the City utilizes its own

departmental structures, alliances with the State Government, and the private sector including

banks, developers and non-profit entities.

In the implementation of the CDBG Program, most of the activities are established, developed

and carried out by the City’s offices and Departments that possesses the knowledge and

experience to perform well. This permits us to maintain a better control over the expenditure of

funds, the reasonableness of the cost of the activity, and the timely completion of the activity.

In the case of the HOME Program most of the projects are carried out by the private sector.

Housing developers and mortgage bankers work closely with us to produce affordable housing at

a reasonable cost. The screening of applicants to determine their eligibility for homeownership is

primarily the responsibility of the mortgage banker. We expect the private sector to be a

continuing driving force in the implementation of this program.

With respect to the HOPWA Program its main activity; rent supplement; in which about 725

housing certificates are provided to persons with AIDS and their families. The activity is carried

out by 25 of the 40 municipalities that comprise the San Juan EMSA. The procedures and

resources that these municipalities utilize for the regular Section 8 Program are used for this

HOPWA rent supplement activity.

HOPWA funds are allocated to municipalities and organizations using a competition system that

take in consideration the following:

• Need

• Past performance

• Administrative capacity

• Proposed use of funds

• Years of services

126


City of San Juan, Puerto Rico

2011-2012 Annual Action Plan

During this program year an MOU will be executed that will allow the HOPWA program of the City

to administer the HOPWA funds of the State.

A committee evaluates the proposals and recommends the selections of the organizations.

The other services which consist mainly in the provision of transitional housing and supportive

services are provided through project sponsors, all of which are non-profit entities.

The ESG program is carried out by the City’s Department of Social Development which administers

an emergency shelter known as “Casa Nuestra Gente”.

Lead Office

The municipality’s Community Development Block Grant Office coordinates all activities designed

and implemented to attend to the needs of low and extremely low-income families, elderly

• private sector

• not-for-profit organizations

This office also offers technical assistance to not-for-profit organizations, and administers all

CDBG funds. In addition this office prepares the consolidated plan that includes strategies for

the HOME, ESG and HOPWA programs.

Other Local/State Entities

Various local offices coordinate very closely with the CDBG Office in order to best serve the

municipality’s eligible families/persons. These offices are:

� Municipal Housing Department: This Department administers the Section 8, HOME, and

HOPWA programs at the local level. In addition, it administers the CDBG’s Housing

Rehabilitation program for low and very-low income families. It coordinates new

deteriorated the economic condition of the family.

When this situation happens the Municipality of San Juan will subordinate:

� if proceeds will be used to consolidated debts and reduce the total monthly payment of all the

households monthly debts;

� if the new mortgage payment will be lower than the total monthly payments of the debts that

will be consolidated;

� if the participant will not receive any cash amount;

� if the new mortgage amount will be the current amount of the principal plus the equity

accumulated by the participant.

The refinancing must be coordinated with the HOME program staff and must be approved by the

program manager.The Homebuyer must present evidence of catastrophic disease determined by

a Medicine Doctor and as defined by the American Medical Association, the Medical Association

of Puerto Rico or the American Psychiatrist Association.

In addition to the recapture restrictions to be incorporated in the deed of sale and promissory

note, other provisions will be established. These provisions include the following considerations:

� A provision restricting refinancing and subsequent mortgages of the property, witho ut

the written consent of the Municipality. Refinancing will be limited to home

improvements without equity return, to reduce originals interest or mortgage years.

This restriction is necessary, as refinancing with cash return will have the effect of

reducing the profit at resale thus violating the purpose of the recapture provisions. In

addition, a higher monthly payment after refinancing could represent a risk of

foreclosure due to income adjustments.

� A requirement that the property will be used as the main residence of the homebuyer

may not be leased. The homebuyer may not convert, sold, donated, and permuted to

other such use without written consent of the Municipality.

In the implementation of the Homeownership Program, the Department will comply and will

require recipients to comply with the provisions of 24 CFR 92.217 Income targeting

Homeownership and 92.254 Qualification as affordable housing: Homeownership.

Use of HOME funds to refinance existing debt secured by multifamily housing

Home funds will not be used to refinance existing debt secured by multifamily housing that is

being rehabilitated.

135


City of San Juan, Puerto Rico

2011-2012 Annual Action Plan

All developers of the San Juan HOME program who use the funds to assist five or more units must

submit an Affirmative Marketing Plan. The Plan should be designed to promote and equal choice

of housing options and a unitary housing market. Developers will be required to maint ain all

documents concerning their affirmative marketing efforts. These records should include

documentation of any contact with community groups or neighborhood associations, copies of

current advertisements, surveys or marketing instruments used, relevant demographic data, and

other information deemed necessary in relation to the HOME funded activity.

The affirmative market process established includes the following:

� Communicating the equal housing opportunity message, or the equal housing

opportunity logotype or slogan, in outreach to the general community. This will be

inserted into all written outreach tools, such as press releases, newsletters, brochures,

advertisements, direct mail solicitations, requests for proposals, and related advertising.

� The adoption of a affirmative marketing plan by owners and/or developers. Such plan

must be deemed acceptable by the Municipal Government, and must include advertising

guidelines and frequency of marketing cost estimates.

� Periodic meetings with citizens, particularly with those from communities assumed to be

of low and moderate income, to provide orientation regarding HOME Program projects

and application requirements.

� Marketing campaigns through the media, flyers and distribution of information.

� News coverage and press conferences have been organized, to provide full information

on these projects and available assets, offering program alternatives.

� Promote activities in collaboration with Mortgage Banking Institutions and others

agencies to create an impact in all of the communities.

Actions to be taken to establish and oversee a minority outreach program within its

jurisdiction to ensure inclusion, to the maximum extent possible, of minority and women, and

entities owned by minorities /women

Due to the race composition of Puerto Rico the majority of the population is considered minority,

thus no actions are required to attend this population. The City of San Juan requires an MBE/WBE

report form for each project as part of the HOME agreement. The City will continue to make

every effort to encourage the inclusion of minority and women's business enterprises concerning

future HOME-funded activities, consistent with 24 CFR 92.350.

PROYECCIÓN DE INGRESOS A CUATRO AÑOS 2012-2015

El estimado anual de ingresos y gastos del Municipio de San Juan se realiza tomando como referencia el Plan Estratégico para

los años 2009-2012, establecido por el Primer Ejecutivo y aprobado por la Legislatura Municipal. En el mismo, se definen las

metas y estrategias a seguir por las oficinas o departamentos, que son los organismos responsables de llevar a cabo la

implantación del mismo. Estos recursos son asignados y distribuidos a través de los programas adscritos a las unidades

administrativas municipales, orientados hacia el logro de resultados, mediante el ofrecimiento de servicios en una forma ágil y

de calidad, que resulte en una gestión gubernamental eficiente y efectiva. Para viabilizar el mismo, se proyecta para cada año

fiscal, los ingresos que el Municipio estima que recaudará al fisco municipal. La proyección de ingresos combinados se realizó

considerando la liquidación de ingresos, y los efectos de años anteriores, las distintas situaciones y variables que inciden e

impactan a la economía del país. Debido a la crisis económica y fiscal por la cual atraviesa el país, algunos conceptos de

ingresos son impactados directamente como los son los arbitrios de construcción, patentes y el impuesto sobre ventas y uso al

detal (IVU).

El Municipio ha identificado, y continuará identificando, nuevas fuentes de ingresos mediante la preparación de propuestas a ser

sometidas al gobierno federal, con el propósito de maximizar los recursos que generen mayor cantidad de fondos al fisco

municipal. A continuación, se presenta tabla por tipo de ingreso, para los años fiscales del 2012 al 2015.

PROYECCIÓN DE INGRESOS A CUATRO AÑOS 2012-2015

El estimado de ingresos combinados para el año 2015 refleja un aumento de $72 millones, el cual representa un cambio de 9.4

(%) al compararlo con el estimado de $763.4 millones para el año fiscal 2010-11. Se estima que el Fondo Ordinario aumente

para el año 2015 en $26.2 millones ó 5.9 (%) al compararlo con el estimado de $444.3 millones para el año fiscal 2010-11. La

proyección a cuatro (4) años de este recurso representa el 56 (%) del total de recursos combinados proyectados. Éste es el

Fondo con el cual cuenta el Municipio para llevar a cabo sus gastos operacionales y demuestra ser un fondo estable para

atender los reclamos y necesidades de los ciudadanos capitalinos. El Municipio continúa continúa con la evaluación de

alternativas que estén dirigidas a maximizar los recursos existentes y atraer mayor ingreso al fisco municipal.

Los Fondos Federales son recursos que complementan los ingresos locales en el financiamiento de programas para ofrecer

servicios de calidad en las distintas áreas de salud, vivienda, transportación, adiestramiento y empleo, seguridad pública,

educación y nutrición, entre otros. Este recurso experimentará un aumento de $14.9 millones al compararlo con el estimado de

$117.6 millones para el año 2010-11. El Municipio continuará identificando fondos para los cuales la Ciudad de San Juan sea

elegible, preparará y someterá propuestas al gobierno federal, con el propósito de continuar ofreciendo servicios de calidad a

los ciudadanos de la Ciudad Capital.

Los Otros Fondos incluyen el CAE, empréstitos, los Ingresos Intergubernamentales que recibimos a través del gobierno central,

los ingresos generados del IVU, las penalidades por no rendir el impuesto, y el Fondo de Redención del IVU. En los mismos se

proyecta un aumento de $30.9 millones al compararlo con el estimado de $201.5 millones para el año 2010-11. Este aumento

se debe mayormente a consecuencia del fondo especial de la contribución adicional especial (CAE). Mediante la Ordenanza

Núm. 27, Serie 2009-10, la Legislatura Municipal aprobó la revisión de las tasas contributivas sobre la propiedad mueble e

inmueble, no exenta o exonerada, que radica dentro de los límites territoriales del Municipio. Esta revisión resulta necesaria

para continuar con el Programa de Mejoras Públicas, el cual está dirigido a mejorar la calidad de la infraestructura que redunda

en una mejor calidad de vida y bienestar social de la ciudadanía. El tipo contributivo del CAE aumentó de 2.00% a 3.50%. Esta

imposición será aplicable para años contributivos comenzados luego de 31 de diciembre de 2009, a toda persona que a tenor

con la Ley Núm. 83 de 31 de agosto de 1991, según enmendada, conocida como “Ley de Contribuciones Municipales sobre la

Propiedad”, está sujeta al pago de contribuciones sobre la propiedad inmueble. La proyección a (4) años de este concepto

representará el 50 (%) y el impuesto sobre las ventas y uso al detal (IVU), representará el 25 (%), para un total de 75 (%) del

total de recursos del Fondo Especial. Los ingresos generados por el IVU se utilizarán para el uso de programas dirigidos al

recogido de desperdicios sólidos y reciclaje, la construcción de obras públicas, salud y seguridad, según estipulado en la Ley

Núm. 117 del 4 de julio de 2006, según enmendada. El Fondo de Redención del IVU se finaliza de pagar para el año 2014,

cuya emisión original se utilizó para mejoras a la infraestructura vial (cunetones, aceras y asfalto). Estos ingresos representarán

el 27 por ciento (%) del total de ingresos combinados proyectados para los próximos cuatro (4) años.

Appendix 2- Citizen Participation Process


Comment Response

We strongly suggest that the Action Plan 2011 as

well as the Consolidated Plan be made

electronically accessible to allow us to study it and

better present our comments and

recommendations.

We recommend that organizations should have

more participation in the planning process; more

information about the processes and requirements

related to fund access; information related to

remaining fund balances from previous years and

how to access them, information on affordable

rental housing, and information and accessibility of

federal housing vouchers.

Through the Action Plan and specifically in the

Services Flow Chart, it appears as if the

municipality defines needs, plans for solution,

provides the services and therefore receives the

funds for almost the totality of the homeless

population. The fact remains that La Fondita de

Jesús provides services to over 3,500 homeless

persons a year.

For the 2012-2011 program year the Plan will be

made available at the web page of the

Municipality. In addition the final plan, once

approved by HUD, will be posted at

www.sanjuan.pr.

We disagree with the statement because is

incorrect and unfounded. The City of San Juan

unlike other CPD grantees in Puerto Rico promote

the participation and integrates non-profit

organizations in the planning process of the

Consolidated Plan. Our process has been

recognized by HUD, and even we received a Best

Practice Award for our planning and citizen

participation process.

Technical Assistance is provided to non profit on

remaining (available) fund balances from previous

years and how to access them, information on

affordable rental housing, and information and

accessibility of federal housing vouchers. Even the

organization that presented the comment has

received the TA and funds for the development of

housing.

Again we disagree with the statement because is

incorrect. The Annual Action Plan explain the

strategy used by the City for servicing the

Homeless Population. As part of the strategy

various organizations, including La Fondita de

Jesus, play a role in the Continuum of Care of the

Homeless Population.

Although we generally describe the role of each

organization, the inclusion of such information is

not required by the regulation. The Municipality is

required to include "Activities it plans to undertake

during the next year to address emergency shelter

and transitional housing needs of homeless

individuals and families (including subpopulations),

to prevent low-income individuals and families

with children (especially those with incomes below

30 percent of median) from becoming homeless, to

help homeless persons make the transition to

permanent housing and independent living, and to

address the special needs of persons who are not

homeless identified in accordance with §

91.215(d);"


Comment Response

We noticed that it appears that there’s a mistake

in the information summarized at the table that

summarizes the transitional and permanent

housing projects and the beds available, including

information about La Fondita de Jesus

Allow mortgage payments on existing

indebtedness secured by a property being

rehabilitated with CDBG funds if such financing is

necessary to achieve the community needs. (Might

require amendment to the present Consolidated

Plan)

Allow maintenance and rehab funding, including

refurnishing, for existing transitional housing

facilities that are over 5 years old and are fully

owned by NGO’s,. (Might require amendment to

the Consolidated Plan)

Allow funding for NGO’s acquiring land and/or

structure for the development of housing

(transitional or permanent), or applicable services.

A one-year timeframe to begin construction could

be required. (Might require amendment to the

Consolidated Plan)

Allow funds for rental housing under “Housing

Priority” for CDBG funds since access to affordable

housing in Puerto Rico is generally of rental

housing.

We would like to see that a significant amount of

CDBG 2011 funding estimates ($10,404,612) are

allotted to other non-governmental organization

that work with the homeless people.

The information included in the plan was taken

from 2009 CoC application as posted by HUD in

the HRE web page. Any information regarding the

number of beds is consistent with the information

presented in the CoC application as approved by

HUD.

Due to lack of performance by nonprofit

organizations this activity is not used by the City.

Instead of this activity the Municipality uses HOME

funds to provide low interest rate rehabilitation

loans to low income individuals.

Maintenance is not an eligible activity of the CDBG

program.

Regarding rehabilitation the City of San Juan has

provided funds for the rehabilitation of facilities

operated by NGO.

In the past La Fondita de Jesus has received such

funds.

Funds are available for those uses but not under

the CDBG Program. The Annual Action Plan is an

integrated strategy that require the allocation of

resources for the best uses. It is public policy the

provision of HOME funds for the development of

housing.

Again HOME funds are provided for the

development of rental housing. We want to clarify

that "access to affordable housing in Puerto Rico is

generally of rental housing" is incorrect. The

majority of the affordable housing produced with

CPD funds has be for homeownership and not

rental.

Historically organizations that serve the Homeless

in Puerto Rico has used federal funds for the

provision of services. Unfortunately only 15% of

the CDBG funds can be used for the provision of

public services. It is our understanding that

homeless population is served and funded better

than other populations we greatest need. During

program year 2011 the City allocated CDBG,

HOME, ESG and HOPWA funds to activities that


Comment Response

will serve the homeless.

Allow rehab funding, including refurnishing, for HOME funds are available and awarded for such

existing transitional housing facilities that are over uses.

5 years old and are fully owned by NGO’s, (Might

require amendment to the Consolidated Plan)

Allow funding for NGO’s acquiring land and/or

structure for the development of housing

(transitional or permanent), or applicable services.

A one-year timeframe to begin construction could

be required. (Might require amendment to the

Consolidated Plan)

Allow for HOME funds to be used to provide

tenant-based rental assistance. The advantage of

“tenant-based” rental assistance is that the person

can search and choose for himself/herself, and

that it promotes diversification.

Allow Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program

and their Project-Based Rental assistance program

to be coordinated with rental units developed and

rehabilitated through HOME.

Allow funding for NGO’s acquiring land and/or

structure for the development of services. A oneyear

timeframe to begin construction could be

required. (Might require amendment to the

Consolidated Plan)

Allow ESG Operational Costs for mortgage

payments as well as for rent. Such allocations

would contribute to non-profit organizations being

less dependent.

Allow funding to NGO’s for payment of utilities,

operational, as well as administrative costs

Allow for undeveloped public land and unused

structures to be accessible to NGO’s

Allow funding for services, transitional and

permanent housing structures that need to be

rehabilitated so as to comply with ADA, and other

federal and local government requirements.

HOME funds are available and awarded for such

uses.

It is not public policy of the City of San Juan to

provide HOME funds for TBRA. The policy of the

City is promote homeownership with HOME funds

and to provide TBRA with Section 8 funds,

HOPWA, and other funding sources.

HOME funds are used, when possible and allowed

by the regulation, in combination with Housing

Choice Voucher Program funds. During the past

years more than 10 section 8 families has

benefited from the HOME program.

Acquisition of real property is a ineligible activity

of the ESG program.

HPRP funds are available for the proposed uses

thus is not necessary to allocate ESG funds.

HPRP funds are available for the proposed uses

thus is not necessary to allocate ESG funds. In

addition ESG funds are available from the State for

those purposes.

Authorization for undeveloped public land and

unused structures is under the authority of the

Municipal Legislature.

HOME and HOPWA funds are available for those

uses.


Comment Response

When funds are to be reimbursed to the NGO’s,

provide the NGO a two -month advance of

projected expenses. This enables the entity to

function with an adequate cash flow without

having to incur additional costs for carrying a

credit line.

On the Housing Activities Proposed Household to

Benefit 2010-2011 chart, we suggest that the

HOME Funds allotted to benefit 86 moderate

income household instead be allotted to benefit

extremely low income renters through qualified

NGO,s organizations.

The 2011 Action Plan should have a process

through which it would assure complete

transparency and access to information pertaining

to the totality of funds available, how they are

accessed, how the funds are assigned, how and

when they are in fact used, and what funds are

unused but available.

For a better monitoring of the Action Plan, we

suggest that everything regarding the funds—their

quantities, assignment, use, results—be available

in a Matrix, so that everyone interested can readily

monitor the Plan.

The Action Plan needs to make clear that we are

all seated at the table and included in the needs

analysis and decision-making process, as well as

the Interagency Committee. We suggest including

in this Interagency Committee representatives

from the NGOs.

The Plan needs to spell out how coordination

between public and private social service agencies,

including non-profit housing providers, will be

enhanced.

The Policy and Procedures to Affirmatively Market

Housing Containing Five or More HOME-Assisted

Units should include not only “the use of minorityowned

media as part of the marketing efforts”, but

Two months cash advances are not permitted by

the regulations.

It is the policy of the City of San Juan to use HOME

funds for homeownership and not to develop

rental housing. Housing Choice Voucher Program,

HPRP, HOPWA TBRA, and Shelter Plus Care Funds

are available to serve the extremely low income

renters depending on their needs.

We disagree with your statement. The process

used by the city complies with all the requirements

established by HUD.

See page 131 of the plan.

During the preparation of the strategies of the

consolidated NGO are consulted regarding the

need of their organizations. In addition during

public hearing all organizations and the general

public are invited and encouraged to participate

and expose their needs. We understand that

current level of participation is adequate and

complies with the regulations.

The plan include such information.

Faith based organizations and other nonprofit

organization are used during the affirmative

marketing process.


Comment Response

also churches, NPOs, etc.

The Action Plan should include a clear definition of

what constitutes criminalization of the homeless,

which we understand to be the prohibition of

human activities in public spaces by those who

lack a private space for them. In addition, the Plan

should detail the specific action steps to combat

this problem, which seems to us

far more serious than the Plan recognizes. For

example, the large majority of

Puerto Rico’s municipalities have criminalizing

measures in their Municipal Codes

and/or Ordinances.

A housing needs assessment should be tied to

demographic and other valid

studies.

There needs to be standards of what is an

adequate housing unit to be built with

federal funds. This would help assure the “quality

of housing” as well define what

an adequate space is. For example: 40sq.ft per unit

and in the case of units for

independent living, each unit having its own

kitchen and bathroom.

We believe that one of the Barriers to Affordable

Housing for underserved citizens

under the HOME Program is that people in fact

don’t know about it. This barrier

should be mentioned in the Action Plan, as well as

strategies for overcoming it.

The Action Plan needs to facilitate and promote

two-way communication among all

the stakeholders to allow the exchange of ideas,

needs, changes, and opportunities

at the base level.

This is not required by the regulations.

The consolidated plan and the annual action plan

are based on actual data and valid demographic.

Your comment fail to identify which areas should

be tied studies or data and assume that the

information in the plan is not correct.

The housing standards used by the City are

available for review at the HOME program.

The Municipality understand that the barrier

identified by the organization is addressed

properly with proactive actions that include:

� Outreach during housing fairs

� Participation at the Affordable Housing

Annual Conference

� Periodic meetings with Asociación de

CHDO

� Direct Technical Assistance to NGO

The Consolidated Plan and the Action Plan are

based on two way communication and

consultation with required parties. Comments

from all parties are integrated into the plan.


Comment Response

Provide information with regards to all the carryover

funds available (not exclusive

to the 2011 appropriation).

Create and include a communication plan to

inform that there is no prohibition

against using other federal, local, and state

subsidized financing or Section 8

homeownership vouchers in conjunction with the

Homeownership Assistance.

The outreach for the distribution of HOME funds

should include direct email to prior

grantees, foundations, coalitions, and other means

of communication besides a

single newspaper.

The carryover funds by program are:

CDBG $5,508,016.42

HOME $14,813,918.56

HOPWA $3,476,384.51

ESG $191,809.75

SECTION 108 $1,213,093.74

The Municipality of San Juan combines the HOME

funds with all other homeownership funds

available permitted by the regulation including

federal, local, and state subsidized financing and

Section 8.

Your comment will be noted, but The Municipality

is in full compliance with the requirements of the

regulations.
