a. ORDER 05-7-13-1H/In the Matter of Approving the Submission of the 5-Year/Annual Agency Plan for the Fiscal Year Beginning October 1, 2005.

 

Dorothy Cummings, HACSA, reported that this was the sixth year that HUD had required this document.She noted that over the last few years, as their funding had become harder and HUD had further delays, it made a meaningful document harder to put together.She commented that it is hard to have goals when they donít know what the budget would look like.She said they just received word about the capital fund plan but didnít know how much they are getting or when it would be effective.She indicated that with their five-year plan, they tried to stay ahead, keeping the agency in a high performer status even though it would be harder to maintain as HUD cuts the budget and they have less staff to do the job.She said it would be hard to turn around the units quick enough to keep the vacancies down.She hoped to continue to serve the people at the same level of service.She said this was the first year they received any resident comments and those comments are electronically submitted to HUD with the plan.They consider it an important part of the plan.

 

Pothier indicated that she had sat through a tenant meeting.She commented that†† they had been seeing how grants had been changed from HUD.She indicated that HUD is not providing things that are needed and they are going away from the needs of the people.
