Moving to Work (MtW) Plan Available for Comment

In August, HRHA was selected to participate in the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) cohort #1 of the Moving to Work expansion. Participation in the MtW expansion allows HRHA to develop local policies to meet MtW objectives, as well as flexibility on some spending. 

The MtW plan has been published, and will be available for pubic comment October 16, 2020 through November 16, 2020. The MtW plan will be posted online, on our Facebook page, and available for pick up at the HRHA Main Office during business hours (286 Kelley St., Harrisonburg).

From HRHA Executive Michael Wong:
Franklin Heights Unit in the fall
Residents, program participants and community partners,

The Harrisonburg Redevelopment and Housing Authority (HRHA) is excited to share our Moving to Work (MtW) plan and invite comments on our proposed activities and goals. We are grateful for feedback over the last month and a half, which assisted in the drafting of the proposed plan. We encourage your participation in our public comment period, the public hearing at City Hall October 21, and the October 29th input meetings for residents and participants.
