Provided, however, that all expenditures of any community development block grant funds in addition to those appropriated and enumerated in this section shall be subject to the following limitations and restrictions:

The Housing and Community Development Act of 1981 made it possible for states to assume administration of the Small Cities Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) previously administered by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). In Tennessee, the CDBG Program shall be administered by the Department of Economic and Community Development (ECD).

There shall be appropriated by the General Assembly to ECD such funds as may be allocated to Tennessee by the federal government for the CDBG Program. The state administered CDBG Program shall be developed within the parameters of the CDBG legislation, applicable federal regulations, and consultation with citizens and elected officials in Tennessee.

The CDBG goals shall be three-fold: (1) target on areas of economic distress; (2) stimulate the growth of jobs and income in these areas; and (3) maximize the number of grantees. Additionally, all CDBG projects must meet one of the three national objectives of (1) principally benefiting persons of low and moderate income; (2) elimination or prevention of slums and blight; or (3) elimination of conditions detrimental to health, safety or public welfare. ECD shall be authorized to make grants and/or loans of CDBG monies to eligible city and county governments in Tennessee to achieve these goals. Loan payments and interest shall be reserved for reappropriation and shall not revert to the general fund balance at year end.

Eligible applicants shall be all city and county governments in Tennessee except those cities and counties designated by HUD as CDBG entitlement areas. Cities excluded from the state-administered CDBG Program include Memphis and Shelby County, Nashville (Davidson County), Chattanooga, Knoxville and Knox County, Clarksville, Bristol, Johnson City, Oak Ridge, Murfreesboro, Kingsport, Hendersonville, Morristown, Cleveland, Franklin, and Jackson. These cities and counties will receive their CDBG funds directly from HUD.

Based upon anticipated CDBG allocations of $25,612,100 in fiscal year 2016-2017 and of $25,612,100 in fiscal year 2017-2018, the following target funding levels shall be established:

2016-2017 2017-2018
Administrative Costs $ 605,300 $ 605,000
Industrial Location/Expansions/Retentions 0 0
Community Livability 3,425,600 2,500,000
Water/Sewer/Solid Waste 18,028,400 18,000,000
Housing and Neighborhood Revitalization 1,536,000 1,500,000
Commercial Facade Improvements 500,000 500,000
Microenterprise 500,000 500,000
Broadband 0 500,000
Set-Aside 1,000,000 1,000,000
Miscellaneous 16,800 507,100

A fifty percent (50%) reduction in any category will be permitted to facilitate proper program management and allow administrative flexibility. The funds so reduced shall be allocated to other categories with priority given to water/sewer/solid waste projects.

Selection criteria for project approvals shall be uniform within categories, objective and quantitative, and shall be based on project need, project feasibility, project impact, community need, the percent of project beneficiaries that have family incomes below the low and moderate income (LMI) levels, and, for community livability projects, essentialness.

Project application materials will be supplemented, as appropriate, by site visits and by informed opinions of state agencies knowledgeable about particular projects.

The level of CDBG assistance for individual projects shall be determined by the following factors: (1) a maximum grant of $500,000.00 and/or a maximum loan of $750,000.00 for individual projects ($300,000.00 for community livability projects); (2) a maximum grant and/or loan to any applicant of $750,000.00 in two successive years; and (3) the grantee's ability to pay. Higher grant levels (up to $1,000,000.00) may be approved for regional projects.

If modifications in the expenditure plan for the CDBG Program are required, said modifications shall be accomplished in the following manner: (1) If the General Assembly is in session, such modifications shall be approved by the General Assembly; or (2) if the General Assembly is not in session, the Governor may either (a) submit such modifications to the State Funding Board for approval or (b) call a special session of the General Assembly for approval.

The Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008, U.S. Public Law 110-289, authorizes additional funding for the Small Cities Neighborhood Stabilization Community Development block grant. It is the legislative intent to appropriate the proceeds, as assumed by the State of Tennessee, in fiscal year 2015-2016 in the amount of $200,000 to the Tennessee Housing Development Agency. Any unexpended funds at June 30, 2017 , are hereby reappropriated in the 2017-2018 fiscal year.

A transfer may not be made if it would result in a deficiency in available funds for any FastTrack or Business Development project for which a contractual agreement has been made, unless such agreement has been amended to reduce the amount required to be expended in the amount to be transferred or unless appropriations are available otherwise.

Transfers also may be made from the capital projects fund to the two operating budget programs from available funds appropriated to the Department of Economic and Community Development for economic development capital outlay projects. Transfers are authorized only from available current funds in the capital projects fund and may not include any amounts from bond authorizations. Before transfers from the capital projects fund may occur, the Commissioner of Finance and Administration shall determine that the current funds are available, that any associated grant agreement for the capital outlay project has been amended to reduce the capital outlay grant in the amount to be transferred or that an agreement has not been made for the capital outlay grant, and that the State Building Commission has approved the capital outlay project current-funds reduction. Such transfers may not be made if they would result in a deficiency in available funds for any capital outlay project previously funded, except under the conditions of this item.

Transfers authorized in this item are subject to the approval of the Commissioner of Finance and Administration.

SECTION 56. Federal Program Reductions. The General Assembly recognizes that reductions in federal grants-in-aid of federal programs by the United States government will require extraordinary actions by the Commissioner of Finance and Administration to manage the state budget within available resources and without detrimental effect on state finances. It is the legislative intent that the reduced programs not be maintained at their former level by substituting state funds for the reduced federal aid.

Item 1. Accordingly, the Commissioner of Finance and Administration shall reduce the federal and other departmental revenue estimates and reduce the allotment of funds in an amount equal to the revenue reductions, in accordance with Section 23, Item 1, it being the legislative intent that such withdrawal of federal aid necessitates a reduction of spending authorization in order to protect the state finances.

Item 3. State funds appropriated to match federal aid that has been reduced shall be set aside in an allotment reserve of the affected program and shall not be expended except to the extent necessary to provide for severance benefits and other actions necessary to reduce programs; provided, however, that the allotment of state funds shall be authorized to the extent necessary to fulfill state maintenance-of-effort (MOE) requirements under federal law. To the extent that state MOE requirements are reduced by the federal programs, state funds in the amount of the allowable MOE reduction also shall be reserved and not expended, except as provided above in this item. The provisions of this item shall not operate to require the reserving of state funds that have been appropriated in excess of the previous level of required state match or MOE in order to enhance the affected joint federal-state program.

Item 4. It is the legislative intent that the state matching funds held in allotment reserve as a result of these actions revert to the appropriate fund balance at June 30, 2018, in addition to the amounts estimated in the over-appropriation in Section 43 of this act, and that such funds as may be estimated at mid-year, when the 2018-2019 Budget is transmitted, be available for the Governor's budget recommendations for the maintenance of any priority program services, if approved in the 2018 appropriations bill enacted by the General Assembly.

Item 5. The Commissioner of Finance and Administration, by December 31, 2017, shall report to the Senate and House Finance, Ways and Means committees and the directors of the Office of Legislative Budget Analysis on the reductions made by department and by state program, including the amounts of federal and other departmental revenue and allotments reduced, the matching state appropriations held in reserve and not allotted, the number of positions reduced, and a general summary of the impact on program services. After the report date, the commissioner shall provide any updated information in a fiscal year-end report encompassing the same categories of information, if the program reductions have changed from the earlier report.

In addition to the amounts appropriated in Sections 1 and 4 of this act, the following amounts are appropriated, and the Commissioner of Finance and Administration is authorized to allocate the appropriations to the appropriate organizational units and to adjust federal aid and other departmental revenues and position authorizations accordingly.
