The draft Agency Plan describes progress made in carrying out ARHA’s approved One-Year Action Plan during the recently completed fiscal year and assesses annual performance in relation to the priorities and goals established in that document. The Plan identifies federal, state and local resources used, housing activities undertaken, HUD’s and ARHA’s policy changes, Capital Funds, Development activities, and Social Services programs during the one-year period represented by ARHA’s Fiscal Year 2011-2012.

The ARHA’s Five-Year Action Plan identifies Asset Management, Capital Funds and Community Development activities to be undertaken to address other needs and priorities established during the 2013 – 2017 and the One-Year Action Plan during 2013 program year. The Plan submission to HUD, which includes the ARHA’s application for Capital Funds based on the most current physical needs assessment, will take place on or before October 15, 2012.

During the public hearing, staff from the ARHA's Asset Management, Modernization, Social Services, and Administration will attend to receive public comments. All comments received through Monday, July 16, 2012 at 5 p.m., will, as appropriate, be addressed in the final draft and/or taken into account in the development of the Five-Year Action Plan and One-Year Agency Plan. Interested parties will have an additional opportunity to comment on the both “Plans” when the draft documents are released and prior to the “Plan’s” approval during the September 2012 regularly scheduled Board of Commissioners meeting, schedule to be published in advance with location and time.
