Notice is given that the Delaware State Housing Authority (DSHA) will conduct two Public Hearings concerning the submission of their Moving To Work Annual Plan for FY2017 to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). This Plan outlines the activities of the Moving To Work Program as well as the sources and uses of funding that DSHA will implement during the sixteenth year of the Moving To Work Demonstration.
DSHA is not proposing any new MTW initiatives in the FY2017 Annual Plan. DSHA will be submitting a request to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to sell the 14 public housing scattered sites homes. All of the scattered site homes are throughout Kent County including Rodney Village and Kent Acres in Dover (5 homes), Milford (1 duplex and 2 homes), Harrington (2 homes), Houston (1 home), Felton (1 home) and Smyrna (1 home). Due to increased expenses maintaining these properties, dwindling resident interest and the logistics of providing maintenance services, DSHA is requesting HUD approval to sell the properties.
A copy of the Draft Plan will be available for inspection and review at DSHA’s offices during normal business hours, Monday through Friday, at 18 The Green, Dover and each Public Housing development beginning February 15, 2016. The Plan will also be available on the DSHA website, www.destatehousing.com beginning February 15, 2016. After the end of the comment period on April 4, 2016, the Plan will be finalized and submitted to HUD for final approval.
The first hearing will be held in the Community Building of the Liberty Court complex at 5:30 P.M., Wednesday, March 16, 2016. Liberty Court is located at 1289 W. Walker Road, Dover, DE 19904. The Community Building is handicapped accessible.
The second hearing will be held in the Community Building of the Burton Village complex at 5:30 P.M., Thursday, March 17, 2016. Burton Village is located at 37511 Burton Village Avenue, Rehoboth Beach, DE 19971. The Community Building is handicapped accessible.
Written comments, questions or requests for additional information, including copies of the Plan itself, should be directed to Christopher A. Whaley of DSHA at (302) 739-7419.
