(a) Establishment of Fund. The Navigation Partnerships Fund (the “Fund”) is established to pay for navigation services provided by the City or contracted community-based organizations. “Navigation services” provide low barrier-to-entry alternatives to shelter with the goal of moving homeless individuals off of the streets, providing case management and connection to social service benefits, with an ultimate goal of stabilizing these individuals in housing placements in San Francisco or otherwise resolving their homelessness. The Fund is a category eight fund, authorized to receive private donations, grants, gifts, and bequests of money which may be offered to the City to assist in the provision of navigation services.
(b) Use of Fund. Money received into the Fund shall be used exclusively for the provision of navigation services. No costs which may be incurred by any City department in administering the Fund shall be recovered therefrom. Monies in the Fund may only be drawn and expended when the City has appropriated an equal amount of funds for navigation services. Appropriations include, but are not limited to, the budget process set forth in Article IX of the Charter, supplemental appropriations, receipt of state or federal grants mid-year, and re-allocation of departmental budgets mid-year.
(c) Administration of Fund. The Department of Homelessness and Supportive Housing shall administer the Fund.
(d) Reporting Requirement. The Department of Homelessness and Supportive Housing shall report at least annually to the Board of Supervisors and the Local Homeless Coordinating Board on private donations, grants, gifts, and bequests of money to and expenditures from the Fund.
