The Maine State Housing Authority has prepared a draft of the Annual PHA Plan required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development for MaineHousing to administer the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program.
The draft Annual PHA Plan was developed in consultation with MaineHousing’s Resident Advisory Board and provides information on current programs and the resident population served, as well as strategies for addressing the housing needs of currently assisted families and the larger community.

The plan describes activities required under HUD Regulations to promote economic self-sufficiency for tenants enrolled in the FSS program.
MaineHousing shall hold a public hearing to receive comments on September 15 at 9:30 a.m. at the Maine State Housing Authority at 353 Water Street, Augusta.
