PUBLIC NOTICE

In conformance with Section 511 of the Quality Housing and Work Responsibility Act of 1998, the Helena Housing Authority (HHA) Board of Commissioners invites public comment regarding Helena Housing Authority’s FY 2023 Annual Plan, 2022 Capital Plan, revisions to the Public Housing Lease, and  Public Housing Admissions and Continued Occupancy Policy (ACOP);   and discussion of HHA’s redevelopment needs, and the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Administrative Plan. 

The HHA Annual Plan is a plan that informs HUD, residents, program participants and the public of the HHA’s mission serving the housing needs of low-income and very low-income families and the HHA’s strategy for addressing those needs.   The Annual Plan public process is a great opportunity to share ideas and make comments to improve how the HHA operates including our low rent public housing (including Capital Fund improvements), Housing Choice Voucher, Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH), and VASH Programs. The HHA Capital Fund Plan details HHA’s proposed use of its public housing Capital Funding to address needs at its public housing sites. The Proposed Revisions to the Public Housing lease and ACOP are to update these documents to incorporate recent changes in state and federal law and to address minor syntax and format issues.

Please contact the HHA at (406) 442-7970 ext. 124, or moneil@hhamt.org if you have a disability and require a reasonable accommodation or need assistance to participate in this process, or if you have questions.
