--- Issued September 11, 2010

The Erie Housing Authority has posted its schedule for preparation of, and taking resident input for, its 2011 Agency Plan.


The first meeting of residents to discuss the plan and resident needs will be held October 6 at the John E. Horan Garden Apartments Learning Center, 730 Tacoma Road, at 6:30 P.M.

The Authority’s Agency Plan, also called the Annual Plan, is a document submitted annually to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). It details how HACE will spend federal funds for construction, renovation, programs, equipment, and services.

The plan provides a summary of the programs, operations, and clients assisted by the agency, as well as a description of major initiatives to be undertaken during the Annual Plan year.

The Annual Plan makes public the financial and collaborative resources made available by HACE to deliver high quality housing and economic self-sufficiency services to the low-income population of the City of Erie.

The Plan informs the public, through a series of public meetings and Resident Advisory Board meetings, some of the unique challenges facing the agency.

Where possible, HACE has suggested approaches to these challenges, and shares these initiatives with a cross-section of community leaders, residents, and members of the Resident Advisory board.

The schedule posted for the Agency Plan process is as follows:
