The Spokane Housing Authority’s (SHA’s) draft 2023 Annual Public Housing Agency (PHA) Plan & Moving to Work (MTW) Supplement is now available for public review and comments. Please see the notice below for more information on the proposed changes and how you can get involved in shaping the future of SHA.
ABOUT THE DRAFT
As a new MTW agency effective January 1, 2023, the US Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) requires that SHA submit the Annual PHA Plan as well as an MTW Supplement, which includes additional attachments and supporting documentation. In accordance with HUD public process requirements and MTW communication best practices, SHA aligned proposed changes into a streamlined version for public review. This easy-to-read version includes the proposed Annual Plan, draft MTW Supplement, and all other required attachments and information.
As of August 28, 2022, the draft plan is available for review online at spokanehousing.org and through a link on SHA’s Facebook page. For more information on SHA’s Moving To Work demonstration program, please visit spokanehousing.org/mtw.
Following a period of public comment and public hearing, a final draft will be submitted to HUD by October 15, 2022, for an effective date of January 1, 2023.
