Home Departments Family Self-Sufficiency Public Housing Residents

 

 

We value the opinions of our residents and provide the opportunity for residents to get involved in the decision-making process with their participation among our Tenant Councils and the LHA Resident Advisory Board.  Tenant Councils and the Advisory Board offer an open forum for residents to voice their concerns, and provides the Authority with critical input to address issues and implement policies which affect residents.

 

  

Tenant Councils  

 

The LHA Tenant Councils meet monthly within the development, and all residents are welcome to attend. Each of the LHA's Tenant Councils receive an annual operating budget.  Throughout the year, Tenant Council leadership work on behalf of residents to plan community outings, holiday events, coordinate guest speakers, and discuss policy issues.  Tenant Councils are an important platform for engaging residents and ensuring transparency, as the Authority continues to provide residents with a safe, and pleasant place to call home.

Resident Advisory Board

 

Resident Advisory Boards consist of a 35 member panel, which is representative of resident population living within LHA developments.  This Board is called upon periodically by the LHA leadership team to act as a sounding board for new LHA policies. Resident Advisory Board members also provide valuable input, assisting the Authority in developing short and long-term capital planning goals. The LHA is always looking for new members to join.  If you are interested in joining, please contact Andrew Rocha, at This email address is being protected from spambots.
