Description: WEDNESDAYS, JUNE 2 AND JUNE 9
This series is exclusively for residents of public housing.
On June 2 and 9 join the Mel King Institute, DHCD, Mass Union and Mass Law Reform for two sessions about the Annual Plan. Session 1 will take place from 11:00 – 12:00 on June 2, and Session 2 from 10:00 – 11:00 on June 9.
Every Local Housing Authority (LHA) is required to prepare and post an Annual Plan. This Plan includes the LHA’s budget, capital improvement plan, maintenance information, a list of policies, a list of waivers, and more. Residents have the right to weigh in, especially Local Tenant Organizations!
Every Housing Authority is also required to hold a public hearing about their Plan. For Housing Authorities whose fiscal year ends in September, the hearings will be held over the summer. Most will be held using the GoTo Meeting virtual platform which is similar to Zoom. Residents and others can participate in the hearing over the computer OR phone. A computer is not needed!
