Norfolk Redevelopment and Housing Authority (NRHA) Board of Commissioners regularly scheduled March 8 meeting will move to March 22 to coincide with a public hearing on the Annual Plan for Assisted- Rental Housing at Ruffner Middle School, 610 May Ave.
 
The Board will meet at 4 pm prior to the public hearing at 6:30 pm.
 
The Quality Housing and Work Responsibility Act (QHWRA) of 1998 requires housing authorities to complete a five-year plan and an annual plan for its assisted-rental properties and Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program. NRHA is developing its 11th annual plan and preparing to enter the second year of its third five-year plan, beginning July 1, 2010.
 
The plans include information on NRHA’s major goals, objectives and strategies for assisted-rental housing and HCV program, such as demolition/disposition, site-based waiting lists, requirements/mandates by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and NRHA’s objectives and strategies for achieving the mission of “providing quality housing opportunities that foster sustainable mixed-income communities.”
 
As a part of NRHA’s annual plan preparation, the third annual resident forum was held on the evening of December 8, 2009 at Ruffner Middle School. Over 200 residents and HCV participants were in attendance to provide feedback and suggestions.
