Background. The HCDCH is currently developing its Fiscal Year 2006 PHA 5-Year and Annual Plans as required by the Quality Housing and Work Responsibility Act (QHWRA) of 1998.

The 5-Year Plan states the HCDCH\u2019s mission, goals, and objectives for serving the needs of low-income and very low-income families during the next five years. The Annual Plan details the operations and management of federal public housing and Section 8 tenant-based assistance programs. Through these plans, HCDCH will advise the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), its residents, and members of the public on its strategy in addressing the needs of residents in federal public housing and recipients of Section 8 tenant-based assistance.
