Santa Fe, NM – The City of Santa Fe’s Office of Affordable Housing is seeking candidates interested in serving on the Community Development Commission (CDC).  The CDC is a seven-member board appointed by the Mayor to serve three year terms. Staff is currently seeking to fill two (2) vacancies: one for a term that expires in March 2018, and one expiring in March 2020. Thereafter, the appointee will serve a three (3) year term subject to reappointment of the Commission.

 

The CDC is charged with advising staff and the governing body of the city about matters pertaining to the provision, construction, preservation of affordable housing and public services/facilities that serve very low income residents. The Commission oversees the following: a) funding allocation recommendations for the approximately $500,000 annual Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program in accordance with the city’s adopted consolidated plan; b) administration of the Santa Fe Homes Program (SFHP) and the Housing Opportunity Program (HOP) in accordance with adopted ordinance; c) making policy recommendations to the governing body relating to affordable housing and other community development issues; and d) allocating loan and housing assistance according the Affordable Housing Trust Fund Ordinance as set forth in Section 26-3 SFCC 1987.  All interested candidates who reside within Santa Fe County will be considered.

 

Meetings currently take place on the third Wednesday of each month as needed, with three mandatory annual meetings to allocate CDBG and AHTF funding in February (requires commitment to an all-day meeting), to review and approve the CDBG Program’s Action Plan in April and to review and approve the City’s Consolidated Annual Performance Evaluation Report (CAPER) in September.  Interested candidates may send a resume and letter of interest by email or USPS by 5 PM on October 27, 2017 to Alexandra Ladd, interim staff liaison to the CDC, at:
