The public hearing will be held for the purpose of receiving comments on the Agency's revisions to its 2020 Annual Plan and 5 year plan as required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The Annual Plan and adjoining relevant policies within the Admissions and Occupancy Plan (ACOP) has been modified to reflect revisions regarding the following changes:


I. Annual Plan (Change in Significant Amendment Definition)

As part of the Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD), The Housing Authority of the City of Daytona Beach is redefining the definition of a substantial deviation from the PHA Plan to exclude the following RAD-specific items:

a) The decision to convert to either Project Based Rental Assistance or Project Based Voucher Assistance;

b) Changes to the Capital Fund Budget produced as a result of each approved RAD

c) Conversion, regardless of whether the proposed conversion will include use of additional Capital Funds;

d) Changes to the construction and rehabilitation plan for each approved RAD conversion; and

e) Changes to the financing structure for each approved RAD conversion.


II. Annual Plan (Revision 2- Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD)

The Housing Authority of the City of Daytona Beach (HACDB)  is amending its annual and/or 5-year PHA Plan because it was a successful applicant in the Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD). As a result, the HACDB will be converting to Project Based Vouchers under the guidelines of H 2019-09/PIH 2019-23, Rental Assistance Demonstration REV-4 Final Implementation and any successor Notices. This action will occur only after analysis of the benefits to the community, review and approval by the Board of Commissioners and community engagement regarding the process. 

Upon conversion to Project Based Vouchers the Authority will adopt the resident rights, participation, waiting list and grievance procedures listed in (For conversions to PBV: Section 1.6 of H 2019-09/PIH 2019-23, REV-4; and H-2016-17/PIH-2016. These resident rights, participation, waiting list and grievance procedures are appended to this Attachment. Additionally, the HACDB certifies that it is currently compliant with all fair housing and civil rights requirements, RAD was designed by HUD to assist in addressing the capital needs of public housing by providing (insert PHA name here) with access to private sources of capital to repair and preserve its affordable housing assets.  Upon conversion, the Authority's Capital Fund Budget will be reduced by the pro rata share of Public Housing Developments converted as part of the Demonstration, and that HACDB may also borrow funds to address their capital needs. The HACDB will also be contributing Operating Reserves in the amount of $1,000,000, Capital Funds in the amount of $1,000,000 towards the conversion, and/or Replacement Housing Factor (RHF) Funds in the amount of $9,00,000 towards the conversion.

Termination Notification. HUD is incorporating additional termination notification requirements to comply with section 6 of the Act for public housing projects converting assistance under RAD, that supplement notification requirements in regulations at 24 CFR § 880.607 and the Multifamily HUD Model Lease.

i. Termination of Tenancy and Assistance. The termination procedure for RAD conversions to PBRA will additionally require that Project Owners provide adequate written notice of termination of the lease which shall not be less than:

1. A reasonable period of time, but not to exceed 30 days:

b. Grievance Process. In addition to program rules that require that tenants are given notice of covered actions under 24 CFR Part 245 (including increases in rent, conversions of a project from project-paid utilities to tenant-paid utilities, or a reduction in tenant paid utility allowances), HUD is incorporating resident procedural rights to comply with the requirements of section 6 of the Act. RAD will require that:

i. Residents be provided with written notice of the specific grounds of the Project Owner's proposed adverse action, as well as their right to an informal hearing with the Project Owner;

ii. Residents will have an opportunity for an informal hearing with an impartial member of the Project Owner's staff within a reasonable period of time;

iv. Project Owners provide the resident with a written decision within a reasonable period of time stating the grounds for the adverse action, and the evidence the Project Owner relied on as the basis for the adverse action. The Project Owner will be bound by decisions from these hearings, except if the:

i. Hearing concerns a matter that exceeds the authority of the impartial party conducting the hearing.

ii. Decision is contrary to HUD regulations or requirements, or otherwise contrary to federal, State, or local law.

If the Project Owner determines that it is not bound by a hearing decision, the PHA must promptly notify the resident in writing of this determination, and of the reasons for the determination.

Family Right to Move. Each family has the option to obtain tenant-based rental assistance (commonly known as a Housing Choice Voucher) from HACDB subject to certain program limitations, at any time after the second year of occupancy. Before providing notice to terminate the lease, the family must first contact the PHA to request tenant-based rental assistance if the family wishes to move with continued assistance. If tenant-based rental assistance is not immediately available, the PHA shall give the family priority to receive the next available opportunity for tenant-based rental assistance. After the PHA offers the family the opportunity for tenant-based rental assistance in accordance with HUD requirements and after the family has secured a lease with such tenant-based rental assistance, the family must give the owner advance written notice of intent to vacate (with a copy to the PHA) in accordance with the lease.
