The Norfolk Redevelopment and Housing Authority (NRHA) Board of Commissioners approved the Annual Public Housing Authority Plan at their monthly meeting April 12.
The Quality Housing and Work Responsibility Act of 1998 requires all federally funded public housing authorities to prepare a Public Housing Authority Plan consisting of two separate sub‐plans: an Annual Plan and a Five‐Year Plan. NRHA’s current plan, which has been submitted to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development for approval, includes the Five‐Year Plan for Fiscal Years 2015 – 2019 as well as the Annual Plan for Fiscal Year 2018 (July 1, 2018 to June 30, 2019).
Both plans provide information on NRHA’s Low Income Public Housing, Housing Choice Voucher and Project Based Voucher programs, property demolition/disposition and policy changes. They describe the goals, objectives and strategies that enable NRHA to serve the needs of low‐income, very low‐income and extremely low‐income families within Norfolk.
Included in this year’s annual plan:
  • St. Paul’s Area five‐year plan initiatives;
  • Conversion of public housing to Project Based Section 8 funding through the Rental Assistance Demonstration Program;
  • Demolition and disposition activity;
  • Proposed changes to the Admission and Continued Occupancy Policy for the Low Income Public Housing program;
  • 2018 flat rent schedule;
  • Notice of Non‐Smoking Policy;
  • Notice of Occupancy Rights under the Violence Against Women Act and
  • Capital Fund Plan
