EVANSVILLE, Ind. ~ The Evansville Housing Authority (EHA) is scheduled to sign documents on March 31 that will finalize Phase 1 of EHA’s conversion to a new business model for operating and funding its public housing properties. The new business model, called the Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) program, will create a public/private partnership that is approved and regulated by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
On November 12, HUD released the "Instituting Smoke-Free Housing" proposed rule. The proposed rule would require each public housing agency (PHA) administering public housing to implement a smoke-free policy. Comments on the proposed rule are due 60 days after it is published in the Federal Register.
