Avant-Garde administers and implements housing rehabilitation programs for communities around Southern California, providing support and stabilization for people and cities.
Ongoing administration of HUD programs is a complicated process to ensure our clients remain in compliance with all applicable federal, state, and local laws, rules, regulations, and policies. Our management team is adept at serving as our clients’ liaisons with HUD. Avant-Garde updates and/or amends Consolidated Plans, Action Plans, Citizen Participation plans, and Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Reports (CAPERs). Our clients’ IDIS database is updated and maintained with project activity information and drawdown requests are processed with supporting documentation and approval. Project and property files are maintained in a way that allows audits to be performed smoothly. Avant-Garde is available to respond to any HUD audit findings and/or concerns, take corrective actions, answer questions, and follow up with any other information as requested. Additionally, Avant-Garde prepares housing and subrecipient agreements and performs subrecipient monitoring with quarterly reports and reimbursement requests.
Some of our clients participate in the CalHOME Program. Our assistance in its administration consists of processing loans to assist first-time homebuyers or grants to perform home rehabilitation. As with the federal HOME Program, our team is engaged throughout the rehabilitation process, conducting inspections, preparing work write ups and reports, and approving payments until project close out.
Avant-Garde conducts annual subrecipient monitoring of ESG funded agencies to ensure compliance with federal regulations. Program and financial records are reviewed including budgets, general ledgers, invoices, time cards, job descriptions, written procurement policies and procedures, written ESG policies and procedures for eligibility, applications, proof of match, marketing tactics, and many others. Reports are then generated detailing all findings and their recommended corrective actions.
