The San Francisco Human Services Agency (HSA) shall administer the Rental Subsidy Program for Low-Income Families ("Rental Subsidy Program"), which shall not include the City's "First Avenues Program," a program that provides rental housing subsidies through the auspices of the Hamilton Family Center. The Rental Subsidy Program shall be funded through the general fund, subject to the Annual Appropriations Ordinance. HSA shall adopt rules and regulations to implement the Rental Subsidy Program consistent with this ordinance. HSA shall ensure that contractors administering this program communicate with families eligible for the Rental Subsidy Program in the families' primary languages. In addition. HSA shall administer the program so that families who meet program eligibility requirements are served on a first-come, first-served basis until the total amount of money designated for this program in the Annual Appropriations Ordinance is gone. Families receiving a rental subsidy through the original program as administered by HSA prior to the effective date of this Ordinance shall be deemed to have applied for the Rental Subsidy Program and to have received a subsidy under the Rental Subsidy Program as of the date that they received their first rental subsidy from the City.
