Section 8 Participants: 


The Berkeley Housing Authority invites you to help us shape the vision of the Berkeley Housing Authority (BHA) by serving on the Resident Advisory Board (RAB) for the Five Year/Fiscal Year 2009-2010 Annual Plan process. Every Housing Authority is required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to review its administrative policies and where appropriate, revise them. Feedback from program participant, like your self, is critical in making sure that the policies are fair, reasonable and enforceable.

If you serve on the RAB, you will be asked to:

Review the Administrative Plan (Section 8);

  1. Attend a meeting on Tuesday, February 24, 2015 @ 10:00 a.m. to discuss the plans, and
  2. Share your comments.

Your comments are important. They will be incorporated into the final plans, and/or shared with the full Housing Authority Board of Commissioners for consideration.  In exchange for attending the meeting you will receive a $50 stipend. This stipend will not be considered income for purposes of determining your household income/rent.

If you are interested and available to serve on this important project, please contact Celinda Aguilar-Vasquez at or (510) 081-5483 by Wednesday, February 4, 2015 and/or fill out this form (click here) and submit it to the Berkeley Housing Authority by Wednesday, February 4, 2015.
