This notice is to inform you that, pursuant to 24 CFR Part 903.17, the Hawaii Public Housing Authority (HPHA), Department of Human Services, State of Hawaii will hold public hearings as specified below on the Public Housing Agency (PHA) 5-Year and Annual Plans.

Background. The HPHA is currently developing its Fiscal Year 2007 PHA 5-Year and Annual Plans as required by the Quality Housing and Work Responsibility Act (QHWRA) of 1998. The QHWRA was enacted to revitalize and improve federal public housing and tenant-based assistance programs and makes significant changes to federal and Section 8 tenant-based programs. The 5-Year Plan states the HPHA\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, HPHA 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.

Copies of the 5-Year and Annual Plans are available for public viewing at the regional libraries throughout the State (Hawaii Document Center), or may also be viewed or picked up at the following locations between 7:45 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
