Public Hearing/Request for Public Comment – Proposed Revisions to the Housing Choice Voucher Program Administrative Plan


The Columbia Housing Authority (CHA) is holding a public hearing and requesting public comment on a proposed revision to the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program’s  Administrative Plan, Chapter 17 – Project-Based Vouchers.

The proposed revision will add an “absolute waiting list preference” for CHA public housing residents living in CHA public housing properties that have received Low-Income Tax Credit reservations through the Missouri Housing Development Commission (MHDC).

This alteration of the HCV Administrative Plan will allow absolute preference for any approved applicant on a CHA administered Project-Based Vouchers (PBV) waiting list if that applicant currently resides on a CHA public housing property that has received LIHTC reservations through MHDC.
