Regulatory Authority: 24 CFR § 964.130(a)(1) Description: The regulations require that resident councils must adhere to certain minimum standards regarding election procedures, including that all procedures must assure fair and frequent elections of resident council members—at least once every three years for each member. HUD recognizes that conducting resident council elections may not be possible as a result of COVID-19 public health actions. HUD is waiving the regulation to allow PHAs to delay resident council elections beyond the three-year limit if necessary. However, the delayed resident council election must be rescheduled and held as soon as reasonably possible once circumstances permit, after December 31, 2021.
Period of Availability: The period of availability of this waiver ends on December 31, 2021.
All resident meetings were cancelled from March 17, 2020 through mid 2022 We are using Zoom with tele-confrencing for meetings through 2022
Each year the Housing Authority of the City and County of Sacramento must submit an update to their Annual Plan to HUD for final approval. The Sacramento Resident Advisory Board plays an integral part in this process. In April we go to the resident meetings an get resident input on the Capitol Fund portion of the plan. In July and August we review changes to the ACOP with SHRA. The completed package goes to the Commission in September for a public hearing, then if approved, it is forwarded to HUD for adoption. The documents are published onSHRAs website for public review and comment (click on Public Housing Agency Plans and Reports to view the plan). The public comment period closes after this item is heard by the commission.
The Housing Authority, through the Sacramento Housing Authority Repositioning Program, Inc. (SHARP) and RAD, has begun to rehabilitate Edgewater and Capitol Terrace.
