EXECUTIVE ORDER NO. 88-02 AMENDED
THE METROPOLITAN GOVERNMENT OF NASHVILLE AND DAVIDSON COUNTY
PHIL BREDESEN, MAYOR
Subject: Coordination of Metropolitan Government Activities to Aid the Homeless
The Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County administers a variety of activities which are designed to assist the City's homeless population.
The United States Congress passed in June 1987 the Stewart B. McKinney Homeless Assistance Act which authorizes Federal funding for a wide variety of services for the homeless at the local level. Given the diverse nature of these activities which cross inter-departmental lines throughout the Metropolitan Government, it is necessary to create an administrative mechanism to facilitate effective coordination.
There is, therefore, hereby appointed an Inter-Departmental Task Force on the Homeless. Its responsibilities shall initially focus upon effective implementation of the Metropolitan Government's participation under the Stewart B. McKinney Homeless Assistance Act. This task force shall further serve as a vehicle to assess all homeless activities currently being conducted by the agencies and departments of the Metropolitan Government. It shall also make recommendations to the Metropolitan Mayor as to means by which available resources can be most effectively utilized to assist the homeless. This task force shall be composed of the following members:
Executive Director, Metropolitan Development and Housing Agency, or his/her designee
Director, Metropolitan Social Services, or his/her designee
Executive Director, Mayor's Employment and Training Resources Agency, or his/her designee
Executive Director, Metropolitan Action Commission, or his/her designee
Director of Homeless Programs, Metropolitan Health Department
Homeless Coordinator, Council on Community Services
Director, Room in the Inn Program
For organizational purposes, the Executive Director of the Metropolitan Development and Housing Agency shall serve as Chairman. Staff assistance will be provided by MDHA. The Metropolitan Department of Law shall provide any necessary legal assistance.
Ordered this 31st day of October 1991.
