In order to provide for decent, safe and sanitary conditions
in all subsidized homes, THE HAFCconducts annual inspections
on 100% of all housing units. In addition to housing quality
standards inspections, random quality control inspections
are conducted on at least 10% of our entire housing stock
to ensure program compliance and to confirm that repairs are
consistent within current industry standards.
There are three types of inspections:
1. Inspections for approval of housing unit
as an HCV residence.
2. Annual inspections
3. Special inspections which are triggered
by a complaint, either from a tenant or a neighbor
4. Follow-up and random inspections to maintain
year-round quality-control standards.

What is the One Strike Policy for the Housing Choice Voucher
Program? All federally assisted housing is intended
to provide a safe place to live and raise families, not a
place to commit crime, to use or sell drugs or terrorize neighbors.
It is the intention of the Housing Authority to fully endorse
and implement a policy that is designed to help promote and
maintain safe, drug-free and violence-free communities.
How the One Strike Policy for the Housing Choice Voucher Program
Works? All screening and eviction procedures shall
be administered fairly and in such a way as not to discriminate
on the basis of race, color, nationality, religion, age, sex,
familial status, disability other legally-protected groups,
and not to violate right to privacy. To the maximum extent
possible, the Authority will involve other community and governmental
entities, as well as resident organizations, in the promotion
and enforcement of this Policy. This Policy will be posted
on the Authority’s bulletin board and copies made readily
available to residents and/or applicants upon request.
Cause for Termination – Definitions
Drug-related criminal activity – the illegal
manufacture, sale, distribution, or use of a drug; or the
possession of a drug with intent to manufacture, sell, or
Drug-related activity means on or off the premises, not just
on or near the premises.
Violent criminal activity – any criminal activity
that has as one of its elements the use, attempted use, or

Informal Hearings. If information is received that
would cause the Housing Authority to deny or terminate assistance,
and the family disputes the information, they will be given
an opportunity for an informal hearing pursuant to the Informal
Hearing Procedures in the Section 8 Administrative Plan, Chapter
19, “Complaints and Appeals.”
