Public Comment Requested

The Columbia Housing Authority is requesting public comment on proposed changes to the composition of our Formal Hearing Panel.  The Formal Hearing Panel is composed of the following representatives appointed by the CHA Board of Commissioners:

  1. One member representing the CHA Board of Commissioners;
  2. One member representing the community at large; and
  3. One member representing public housing residents.

Background:  As the CHA has renovated its public housing properties using the HUD Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) program, these properties have been removed from the public housing program and now receive housing assistance through the Project-Based Housing Choice Voucher Program and the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit Program.

Recommended Change to the Composition of the Formal Hearing Panel: It is being recommended that the member of the Formal Hearing Panel be selected from any resident receiving housing assistance from the CHA, either in a CHA managed property or the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program.  This will ensure representation from all households receiving housing assistance from the CHA.
