  1. Introduction

    Hollywood Housing Authority (HHA) has an aging Public Housing portfolio and has conducted a comprehensive physical needs assessment that looked at each property to help determine critical, immediate, and future needs. Driftwood Terrace is a Public Housing property located at 7300 Davie Rd Ext., Hollywood, FL 30024 that was constructed in 1984. After the physical needs assessment, the HHA has determined that the property requires significant rehab and will be looking to address the property's physical needs by applying to convert the property into a Housing Choice Voucher subsidy through the Streamlined Voluntary Conversion process (Section 22), in order to leverage additional funds to address the physical needs of the property.

    Driftwood Terrace is a senior property for residents age 62+, which provides affordable, ADA accessible housing, which is pet-friendly and close to public transportation. Driftwood Terrace is a three-story property, consisting of 90 one-bedroom units, with an onsite Community Room, Library, Balconies, Patio and onsite laundry facilities.

    The rehabilitation of the property will require the current residents to be relocated. In order to facilitate the rehab, the project intends to relocate one entire floor of residents offsite, in which each floor has 30 residents. Due to Streamlined Voluntary Conversion process, residents will have the option to receive a tenant protection voucher and move offsite, receive a tenant protection voucher and remain onsite or receive a project-based voucher and remain onsite. Determining the residents who will be relocated offsite will be based off of which residents are interested in moving with their voucher to a private unit which is not owned or operated by the HHA. After those families have been identified, the relocation team will work with the remaining residents to either locate housing for them to move temporarily offsite or to other vacant units within the building on different floors.

  2. Driftwood Terrace - Proposed Rehabilitation and Relocation

    The proposed rehabilitation of Driftwood Terrace includes the renovation of all 90 units, in order to improve the quality of life for the residents and the longevity of the property. The newly rehabbed community will be equipped with new kitchens & baths, energy efficient appliances in the units, updated community facilities and improved curb appeal. To rehabilitate the property, the partnership will be submitting a tax credit application to Florida Housing Finance Corporation as well as a Section 22 Voluntary Conversion application to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The Section 22 application and approval will trigger relocation benefits to the residents under the Uniform Relocation Act (URA) (46 U.S.C. § 4600 et seq.), its implementing regulations (49 C.F.R. Part 24).

    The purpose of this Relocation Plan is to establish the policies and procedures for the residents who will be relocated from Driftwood Terrace either permanently or temporarily, as well as the unit transfers within the property to facilitate the rehabilitation, in a manner consistent with HUD's provisions under the URA. Any residents who are temporarily relocated offsite will be eligible to return as long as they are in good standing and income eligible.
