Funded means that money has been set aside (committed) to specific individual rehabilitation/repair projects during the reporting period. These funds are not available to other individuals until the project has been completed and if there is an unspent balance remaining.
Money can come from a variety of sources. Our office administers Community Development Block Grant Funds and HOME partnership funds for this program. Both of these come from the federal government. In addition we leverage other funds on occasion including state and federal weatherization, private homeowner funds and others. All of these sources are included in this report.
There can several reasons for this. Some cities don't have a lot of income eligible households, some may have their own home repair programs, and in some instances we need to do a better job of making people aware of services.
The number of new applications includes those applications that were received during the reported period. In the other categories the applications may or may not have been initiated but their status changed during the reporting period.
An approved application is one that has been approved, has been determined to be eligible for assistance, received competitive bids for eligible work, selected their contractor, signed loan documents (when a loan is involved) and funds have been earmarked for payment for that work.
A pending application is one where the application has been initiated but has not been either approved or cancelled. Typically a final eligibility has not been determined or the applicant has not received and selected a competitive contractor's bid.
