Qualified PHAs under HERA: PHA Plan Requirements

Qualified PHAs, as defined by the Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008 (HERA), are not required to submit Annual PHA Plans to HUD (or significant amendments to those Plans). Therefore, Qualified PHAs cannot describe proposed demolition and/or disposition, voluntary conversion, or other public housing removal actions in those Plans. Qualified PHAs are required to hold an annual public hearing on their public housing activities, including any and all planned public housing removal actions. As part of a SAC application, PHAs certify that they have discussed the proposed removal action at that hearing.
