Your Opinion Counts! - Notice of Public Hearing on the VHA’s 2020 Moving to Work Plan

The VHA is requesting your comments on the Moving to Work Plan for 2020. Changes to VHA policies being proposed in the Plan include the following:

  • VHA is proposing to develop two properties as Mixed Finance Public Housing projects. The first will be a new 46 unit property for formally homeless persons with behavioral health issues. The second is to utilize public housing subsidy for some of the units at Central Park Place, the existing Single Room Occupancy (SRO) project on the VA campus.
  • VHA will resubmit the MTW activity that utilizes a blended housing subsidy from both Public Housing and Section 8 funding for the Meridian, the proposed project noted above for persons with behavioral health issues.
  • VHA is also seeking HUD approval to transfer housing subsidy funded under the Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) from some existing VHA properties to another site so that the current sites can be remodeled and/or sold.

Beginning August 5, 2020, you can see a copy of the Plan Amendment on the VHA website at www.vhausa.com/vha-newswww.vhausa.comwww.vhausa.comwww.vhausa.com/vha-newswww.vhausa.com/vha-newswww.vhausa.com/vha-news or at the VHA Main Street Office (2500 Main Street).
