METHODOLOGY:

This bill appropriates $5,049,000 in general funds to the Department of Health and Human Services for the biennium ending June 20, 2021 to expand homeless services.  The bill specifies the appropriated amount will consist of the following:

 

  • $2,000,000 for eviction prevention assistance,
  • $2,000,000 for homeless shelter management,
  • $1,000,000 for rapid-rehousing for youth ages 18 to 24 years old and Temporary Assistance to Needy Families eligible families, and
  • $49,000 for a Business Systems Analyst position.

 

The Department states it will expend half of the appropriation in FY 2020 and half in FY 2021.  Although the bill appropriates $49,000 for a business systems analyst, the Department anticipates the total cost of this position will be $188,000.  The remaining $139,000 will be paid for with available federal funds.
