Prepared by: Community Affairs Committee (CA)
In 2000, the Legislature established the Community-Based Development Organization Assistance Act for the purpose of providing community-based development organizations with administrative and operating funds to retain project staff to plan, implement, and manage job-generating and community revitalization developments in distressed neighborhoods. The program has not been funded or implemented since it was created by the Legislature in 2000.
This bill eliminates the Community-Based Development Organization Assistance Act.
This bill repeals the following sections of the Florida Statutes: 163.455, 163.456, 163.457, 163.458, 163.459, 163.460, 163.461, and 163.462.
If approved by the Governor, these provisions take effect July 1, 2012.
Vote: Senate 38-1; House 105-9
