BACKGROUND

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development requires each public housing agency to prepare a five-year plan for administering public housing assistance programs.  Administration of the Housing Choice Vouchers makes Albemarle County subject to this requirement.  In addition to completing a five-year plan, an Annual Plan must be submitted each year.  Prior to submission, the plan must be available for a 45-day comment period and reviewed by a Resident Advisory Board for comment and input. After receipt of this input, the final plan is presented for adoption at a Public Hearing.

 

 

DISCUSSION:

The 5-year plan was submitted to HUD in January 2001.  Subsequent annual plans have been submitted and approved.   Work has begun on the proposed plan – a summary having been sent to members of a Resident Advisory Board for review and comment and a summary prepared for review by the Housing Committee at their March 10, 2004 meeting.  The final plan may include revisions and/or comments as a result of these processes and input at a public hearing.

 

 

RECOMMENDATION:

Staff recommends setting and advertising a public hearing on the proposed Annual Plan for the April 21, 2004 Board of Supervisors meeting.
