Prior to any action by the  board, the city must submit to the board an initial project  description  which  sets  forth,  to  the  extent  known,  (a)  a  detailed  physical  description of the property and the number of eligible homeless families  estimated to be served by the project; (b) the  tenant  population  that  will be served by the project and how the project will address the needs  of  these  tenants; (c) a description of other funding sources that will  be used to develop the project, if any; (d) the  category  of  permanent  housing  proposed  to be established; (e) a plan which provides that the  units for eligible homeless families provided under this article will to  the maximum extent practicable be occupied by eligible homeless families  referred from hotels, motels or shelters that  are  regulated  by  title  eighteen  of the official compilation of codes, rules and regulations of  the state of New York; (f) where relevant, information  stating  whether  the  city  intends to convey the project to a not-for-profit corporation  or housing development fund company, and, unless  stated  otherwise,  it  will  be  assumed  that  the  city  will  hold title to the project once  completed;  (g)  a  proposed  development  timetable;  (h)  the   names,  addresses and business background of the principals involved, the nature  of  their fiduciary relationship and their financial relationship, past,  present and future, to the project and to each  other;  (i)  information  regarding  the  operation  of such project and the affordability of such  project for eligible homeless families; and (j) such  other  information  as  the  board  may  require. The board will also require in the project  description  that  the  costs  associated  with  the   construction   or  rehabilitation  of  those portions of projects that are not designed for  occupancy by eligible homeless families are paid for  by  other  funding  programs   or  sources,  and  that  completed  projects  must  meet  all  applicable  city  or  state  codes  governing   such   construction   or  rehabilitation.   With  the  approval  of  the  city,  a  not-for-profit  corporation, housing development fund  company  or  a  person,  firm  or  corporation  that  will  agree to limit its profits or rate of return of  investors in accordance with a formula established or  approved  by  the  agency,  may  submit to the board one or more sites along with a project  description in the form prescribed above.    2. After receipt of the initial project description  described  above,  the  board  will review each proposed site and identify those sites that  the  board  finds  suitable  for  construction  or  rehabilitation   for  permanent  housing  for  eligible  homeless  families.  No  site  may be  considered by the board unless the project proposed for  the  site  will  carry  out  the  objectives  of the homeless families plan most recently  submitted to the council  of  the  city  by  the  New  York  city  human  resources administration.  In its review, the board will give preference  to  those projects that will result in the lowest costs per unit, can be  completed in the least amount of time, serve the greatest need for  such  housing  and  also  provide  housing  for occupants who are not eligible  homeless families.    3. After it has completed its review, the board shall advise the mayor  of the  city  of  its  recommendations  concerning  the  suitability  of  proposed sites for development as permanent housing for the homeless. No  project  shall  be  undertaken  by  the  agency pursuant to this article  unless the project site has been approved by the advisory board.
