The Public Housing Agency Plan is a comprehensive guide to policies and programs that informs HUD, residents and the public of the mission of the Public Housing Agency (PHA) for serving the needs of low-income and very low-income families, as well as the strategy for addressing those needs. PHAs must submit 5-year plans for tenant-based assistance and public housing programs. Some PHAs are also required to submit an HUD Annual Plan to supplement the 5-year plans. In order for the PHA plan to be approved, it must meet the three statutory standards of completeness, consistency and compliance.
The Violence Against Women and Justice Department Reauthorization Act of 2005 (“VAWA”) was reauthorized and signed into law on March 7, 2013. VAWA protects qualified applicants or current residents and household members of applicants or residents who are victims of domestic violence, dating violence, or stalking from being evicted or terminated from housing assistance based solely on acts of such violence against them.
