Pike County Housing Authority is in the process of updating their Admissions and Continued Occupancy Policy (ACOP).  There are two main reasons for the update.  First, there were several mandatory and optional provisions published in the PIH Notice 2016-05 that were accepted, and are noted below in the Annual Plan 2016 information.  Secondly, there were some minor verbiage changes in the previous ACOP Policy, which are also being made.  Please see the old policy ACOP Policy 2/25/16. The new policy will be approved as a draft at our 10/20/16 Board Meeting and is available for public comment starting 9/30/16 through the 11/17/16 Board Meeting, where it will be ratified into permanent status.  Please see the new policy ACOP Policy 10/20/16.  This revision is also available for review at our office during normal business hours.

Pike County Housing Authority has their Annual Plan 2016 available for review.  As a small qualified public housing authority, PCHA is only required to submit an annual Civil Rights Certification every year and a full plan every 5 years, which was done last year.  We have elected to make available all elements of the plan that have changed during the course of the year that would have been submitted during the 5 year plan process.  This plan is for review for a period of 45 days after which a public hearing will be held on 10/31/16 at 9:00a.m. at the PCHA office.  See Annual Plan 2016 Part 1Annual Plan 2016 Part 2Annual Plan 2016 Part 3.

Pike County Housing Authority has their Annual Plan 2015 also available.  See 2015 Annual Plan.
