The Housing authority of the City of Erie has received a “Certificate of Superior Accomplishment” from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development for the way it runs the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program.

Members of the Authority’s Section 8 staff, with John Horan, are, from left:
Roxane Stovall, Joseph Angelotti, Lisa Kasbee, Kim Preston, John Horan,
Nealy Lealy-Ruff, Darrin Kinander, and Rose Mary Renner.

The high performer award is for the Erie Housing Authority’s fiscal year that ended on March 31, 2007. Housing authorities nationwide must score at least 90 out of 100 points to achieve the designation.

“It’s a big accomplishment for an authority to receive this award,” said John E. Horan, executive director of the authority. “This is a reflection of the hard work of the Housing Authority’s Section 8 staff members who are responsible for the day-to day operation of the program.”

In Erie, approximately 900 families receive housing assistance through the Section 8 Program.
