Notice is hereby given that the North Little Rock Housing Authority (NLRHA) will hold a Public Hearing to solicit comments on the Annual Plan for fiscal year 2017 and the five year plan for fiscal years 2017-2021 to be submitted to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
The amended plan is available on January 13, 2017, which commences a 45-day comment period. The PHA Plan (Plan) has been amended to reflect NLRHA’s proposed plan for the submission of Section 18 Demolition/Disposition Applications for Willow House, Heritage House, and Campus Towers and proposed plan for RAD Conversion.
The Plan has also been amended to reflect changes to the Section 9 Low-Income Public Housing Admissions and Continued Occupancy Policy (ACOP), the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program Administrative Plan, the inclusion of a new Relocation Plan and the new Non-Smoking Policy for Public Housing.
This submission has been developed by the staff of the housing authority in consultation with the Resident Advisory Committee over the past several months. Interested citizens, residents of public housing, government officials and any others wishing to make comments or suggestions regarding the plan(s) may wish to attend a public hearing on these submissions, to be held at 10:00 A.M. until 11:00 A.M. on Wednesday, March 1, 2017, at the S.W.
