Budget Highlights

Transfers the Minority and Woman-owned Business (MWBE) Program from the Office of Economic

Development and Innovation to Housing and Neighborhoods (2 positions). A Senior Business Assistance

Program Manager position ($85,000) is added to support the program.

Funding for a new leased space ($500,000) and related up-fit costs ($300,000) that will allow for all three

divisions of the Housing and Neighborhoods Department to be collocated is included in the Engineering

Services Department.

The FY2017 budget allocates one cent of property tax revenue to provide a permanent funding source to

expand the City’s affordable housing program in the capital budget. This additional funding will enable us to

increase output by over 60%, to roughly 325 units per year.
