ACTION: X INFORMATION:
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development requires each public housing agency to prepare a 5-year Plan for administering public housing assistance programs pursuant to Section 511 of the Quality Housing and Work Responsibility Act of 1998 (QHWRA). Administration of the Housing Choice Vouchers makes Albemarle County subject to this requirement. In addition to completing the 5-year Plan, an Annual Plan must be submitted each year. A Public Hearing is required prior to both plan submissions.
Goal 3.2: Promote a variety of safe, sanitary and affordable housing types.
The County’s Office of Housing has developed a new 5-year Plan and Annual Plan with input from a Resident Advisory Board consisting of current recipients of rental assistance under the Housing Choice Voucher Program. The plans have been provided to members of the Albemarle Housing Committee for review and recommendation. A required 45-day public comment period began on March 7, 2005. Any additional comments received during this period including those received during the requested public hearing will be addressed in the final submission to HUD.
Staff recommends setting a public hearing to receive comments on the 2005-09 Housing Choice Voucher 5-Year Plan and the 2005/06 Annual Plan for April 20, 2005.
