a. ORDER 09-7-8-1H/In the Matter of Approving the Submission of the 5-Year and Annual Agency Plan for the Fiscal Year Beginning October 1, 2009.

 

Dorothy Cummings, HACSA, reported that this year they put together the 5 Year Plan with few changes. She indicated there is a requirement of the Agency Plan that they work closely with the Consolidated Plan.  She noted that this year is the new 5 Year Consolidated Plan for the cities of Eugene and Springfield.  She said they have been busy working on that plan.  They took the approach of not making major changes to their 5 Year Plan even though it was required by HUD.  She indicated they made some technical updates and a few changes based on requirements that have changed.  She stated that each year the Public Housing Statement of Policy in the Section 8 Admin Plan governs the admissions and occupancy requirements of the program.  She added that every year they take the plan to the tenant advisory board.  She said there were a few changes to the statement of policy that were technical corrections based on recommendations from HUD.  She added that the rest of the plan focuses on the capital fund, the program that funds the modernization for all of their public housing units.  She indicated they will submit the Capital Plan to HUD.  She said they are still applying for competitive pieces to the capital grant.  She said the 5 Year Capital Fund Plan will change again and she didnít know whether the requirements will require them to go back to the Board at that time.  She indicated that the plan calls for a Board Resolution submitted to HUD along with the electronic submission of the pieces of the plan. She indicated that the plan requires a 45 day comment period.  She added that they met that and there were no tenant comments to submit or any comments from the public.
