The Board of Supervisors approved Resolution 162-06, requiring the Mayor's Office of Housing and Community Development (MOHCD) to administer the Fund. The Ordinance also stipulates that there should be a SoMa Community Stabilization Fund Community Advisory Committee (the Committee), composed of seven members of the SoMa community, to advise MOHCD and the Board of Supervisors on the administration of the Fund. In February 2006, the Board of Supervisors appointed seven members to the Committee.
