"Out of the amounts appropriated for Housing Assistance Services shall be provided $4,800,000 in the first year and $4,800,000 the second year from the general fund to establish a Rental Assistance Fair Market Rent program."

(This amendment establishes a Fair Market Rent Program within the Department of Housing and Community Development. This program would provide rental assistance to fill the gap between 30% of an eligible family's income and fair market rent. This assistance would be limited to three years, and preference would be given to families leaving welfare for work and working families and individuals unable to leave the shelter due to difference between their housing budget and area rents.)
