BACKGROUND:
The San Mateo County STD/HIV Program has received funding from the federal Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS Program (HOPWA) to provide housing services to County residents affected by HIV/AIDS. For the past 20 years, San Mateo County Health has contracted with Mental Health Association of San Mateo County (MHA) to provide housing and housing-related services.

DISCUSSION:
Under this agreement, MHA will provide short-term rent and mortgage assistance, benefits counseling, and case management services to County residents affected by HIV/AIDS. A Request for Proposals was released in January 2020, and MHA was the sole participant with a proposal to provide housing and related services. The selection committee reviewed the proposal and determined that the proposal met the service requirements.

The resolution contains the County's standard provisions allowing amendment of the County's fiscal obligations by a maximum of $25,000 (in aggregate).

The agreement and resolution have been reviewed and approved by County Counsel as to form.

It is anticipated that these services will enable 95% of clients receiving housing assistance services to maintain or improve their quality of life.
