HUD Innovation Activities in Rural Housing & Economic Development

For FHIPs show both initiative and component

For illustrations purposes some actual proposal content was redacted from the original proposal. Microbusiness and Housing Development Company non profit housing provider is pleased to submit its proposal in response to the SuperNOFA regarding the Rural Housing and Economic Development Program. Last year our agency was awarded $700 in RHED funds to establish construction load to building housing for low income families in rural Arizona.

The contract with HUD was signed in 2006. These monies leveraged other funding for our program. For example we have received an additional $500 from local organizations and committed it to the project.

The first funding allowed us to build housing units for low income families. The need is great in rural Arizona. Although the first award is for three years we have been able to commit these funds very fast in response to significant needs in our area.

Therefore we are submitting second proposal to help us continue the work and other economic development activities. The availability of Rural Housing and economic development funds has made tremendous impact on rural areas in Arizona. For illustrations purposes some actual proposal content was redacted from the original proposal.

These required worksheets are typically forms provided by the government agency you are submitting the proposal to. There are many different agencies and also different RFPs for each agency.

If you are submitting proposals to different agencies or RFPs make sure to use the forms supplied by the agency for the specific RFP you are responding to. Forms may be titled the same and appear similar between different agencies and RFPs; however there could be differences. Make sure to get the most up to date form you are required to use from the government agency web site from which you got the original RFP instructions. Remove this instructional text and replace it all with the government agency supplied worksheet.

Abstract

The Microbusiness and Housing Development Company seeks $500 of Rural Housing and Economic Development funds to support the Innovation in Housing Program. RHED funds are to be used to offer direct economic development assistance to retain and expand existing small businesses and micro enterprises in need of growth or guidance in their technologies and communications capabilities thus helping to bridge the digital divide.

Technical assistance will also be offered to help these businesses assess their technology needs identify new business opportunities stabilize their organizations and sustain the expansion of their businesses. Initial funds will help small businesses effect jobs and offer the opportunity for compliant residents to obtain living wage.

Needs Assessment

Our region of Arizona includes small and isolated cities and are known as one of the poorest rural regions in the United States. Sometimes called "third world" by residents the area is blending of American and Mexican cultures. The population is predominantly Hispanic over 70% and the communities we serve include several of Arizona’s most crucial border crossings.

With the collapse of the Mexican economy in the mid 1990’s there was an unprecedented migration to our area. The decline of the peso and the growth of the North American Free Trade Act contributed to economic devastation on both sides of the border. The target area we have combined population. The area is strongly tied to Mexico vulnerable to its economic eccentricities and must respond to mandates from the federal government.

Unemployment rates are substantially higher then the nation as whole. It is currently about 5%. We also experience seasonal employment directly related to farm labor. According to the Arizona Department of Commerce major issue is the fact that the average weekly wage in the State is $600 while in our area it is $200.

One hundred percent of the children in our area are eligible for the Federal free lunch program.

Approach

The Microbusiness and Housing Development Company anticipates using the RHED funds to stimulate number of economic development activities in the rural communities in the Arizona Border Region. RHED funds in amounts up to $6 will be used to provide zero interest loans to qualified small and micro enterprise businesses to help them acquire or upgrade their equipment management information systems or communications facilities. The load can be blended with low interest SBA loan funds to use toward the purchase of additional inventory equipment or working capital.

Our approach is to blend the two sources of funding and create substantial source of very low interest rate loans available to stimulate the economy. The infusion of $500 into the local economy will strengthen the programs ability to meet the needs and build stronger capacity for small and Microbusiness enterprises in the area. A recent audit of our programs validated the success we have using this approach for example.

  • 78% of the businesses continue to operate more than years after the term of their loans;
  • 50% of the businesses report increased assets;
  • 68% of the businesses report net worth;
  • 60% of the Microbusinesses report an increase in household income;
  • 48% report and increase in household assets;

The average weekly wag of newly created or retained jobs is $10 per hour.

Policies

The policies and procedures governing our operation of our lending programs were established years ago and are modified in accordance with local regional state and federal laws. We use management plan to improve the processing and monitoring of all loans. Our plan provides for risk mitigation strategies flexible repayment plans collateral requirements and promotes affirmative action.

Our policy is to adhere to an aggressive lending strategy in order to capture the participation of residents and succeed in advancing the lives of our citizens. Our performance portfolio is constantly monitored and staff receives training quarterly.

Expected Results

By leveraging our RHED funds with SBA Loans we have shown an impact over the last five years that is anticipated to continue as follows. Created over jobs.

  • Increased the hourly wages by 75% or more;
  • Helped remove the obstacles to working online and thus ameliorated the digital divide experience;
  • Improve the type and quality of computer and communications equipment used by our small business and micro enterprises;
  • After three years appropriately 75% of the businesses will continue to be in operation;
  • 65% of the businesses will increase their net worth;
  • 85% of the businesses will report an increase in their assets;
  • 65% of the businesses will report an increase in gross sales;
  • 95% of the micro businesses will report an increase in household income;

The program has regenerated the highest amount of reinvestment in the area.

Leveraging Resources

Our company is committed to offer its low interest Small Business Administration loans for small and micro businesses operating along the Arizona Mexico border. The loan fund is used as leverage with RHED funds to provide substantially higher leverage of 50% desired funds. Additionally the SBA is providing in kind contribution to the project consisting of office space and supplies. Finally we added training program for potential borrowers to assist them with their applications money management and research for their businesses.

Coordination

Some of our clients are social service agencies faith based organizations and community housing development organizations. We serve non profit and for profit organizations that are directly involved with providing housing for the poor. By working through blended program we are able to offer the best of both worlds to potential clients. Additionally we solicit other funds from the USDA Intermediary Lending Program for pre site development and site costs and community facilities.

We have experienced blended loan funds working with Wells Fargo Bank and the U.S. Treasury Department $2,000. Such loans are used for low interest construction projects for low income housing.

Another element of our coordination effort has been with schools. We work to communicate to residents about new loan initiatives. We are currently working with network of charter schools to provide them with sites for community meetings classroom instruction and computer training facilities.

We also collaborate with our local community and year colleges. Some important programs are their small business learning centers that work jointly with us to advance our clients. Finally we participate in the Main Street Program for downtown revitalization in all of our communities.
