Proposed Changes to Section 8 Administrative Plan

And

Public Housing Admissions and Continued Occupancy Policy (ACOP)

 

The Hagerstown Housing Authority (HHA) has reviewed and made changes to its Public Housing Admissions and Continued Occupancy Policy (ACOP) and Section 8 Administrative Plan. These policies govern the continued occupancy of residents in our Public Housing and Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Program. The changes made to these policies are to ensure compliance with federal regulations and state and local laws, as well as to allow HHA to adopt or change management practices and policies.

 

ACOP (Section 7.5 (O.))

  1. Have engaged in negative behavior indicative of poor tenancy. This includes, but is not limited to: inability to maintain peaceful enjoyment in a communal setting; threats, harassment, or coercion of any type, toward the Authority or any other entity or individual.

 

Previous language was: Have engaged in or threatened abusive or violent behavior         towards any Housing Authority Staff or Tenants.

 

 

SECTION 8 ADMIN PLAN (Section 4.8 (K.))

  1. Have engaged in or threatened abusive or violent behavior; this includes, but is not limited to: threats, harassment, or coercion of any type, toward the Authority or any other entity or individual.

 

Previous language was: Having engaged in or threatened abusive or violent behavior         towards any Housing Authority Staff.

The 30-day comment period begins September 22, 2017 and ends October 22, 2017 (4:30pm). All comments must be received by 4:30pm on October 22, 2017 to be considered and must be in writing.
