Changing an Endowment isn`t Permissible

A Zakat committee intends to use a mosque`s accommodation (Which isn`t fit for living as indicated by the report of the Ministry of Awqaf). Thus, it was suggested that the committee rents an accommodation for the Imam at its expense, or pays a rent in return for using that accommodation in delivering its various activities, or that a doer of charitable actions rents a house for that Imam. The reason for this is that the Zakat committee is precisely against the mosque itself, serves the people of that neighborhood in specific and there aren`t vacant flats near that mosque. What is the Islamic ruling on this?
