CDBG-DR Homeowner Opportunity
Program (HOP)

Client: Texas General Land Office (TxGLO)

Metric was selected by TxGLO to provide CDBG-DR program administration, case management and mobility counseling services in support of its Homeowner Opportunity Program (HOP).  HOP involved relocation of low-income applicants in FEMA-designated high-risk areas or areas of high minority or poverty concentration to higher opportunity areas. The Metric team drafted and implemented policies and procedures involving the provision of real estate services, housing counseling, protection of housing choice, affirmatively furthering fair housing, Uniform Relocation Assistance and Real Property Acquisition Act (Uniform Relocation Act of 1970/URA) regulations concerning real property acquisition and rights of displaced persons. 

We were tasked with determining program eligibility, conducting counseling to determine housing preferences and requisite amenities for relocated households, grant execution, real estate closing, and applicant management through closeout. To achieve the goals of the program, Metric was tasked with coordination and collaboration with multiple vendors contracted to deliver specific aspects of the program. Metric spearheaded orchestration of legal services for title clearance, provision of real estate services, environmental reviews, and construction, allowing the program to serve hundreds of applicants who were successfully relocated to safe, sanitary homes.
