Public Housing (PH) Utility Allowance Schedule
Date: May 24th, 2022
To: All Public Housing Residents
From: Stevie Craig, Executive Director
Subject: Utility Allowance Schedule Change
Each year the Housing Authorities are required to review our utility allowance schedule to ensure allowance rates are reasonable and consistent with HUD regulations. Our most recent utility allowance study conducted reveals slight changes for some of our units. The results of the study reveal there will be a small increase in the utility allowances for one-bedroom units at Spinners Court, small increases for ALL bedroom sizes at Harmony Homes and small increase changes for one-bedroom units at Twisted Hickory Homes. There will be small increases in the one, four and five-bedroom units at Oakdale Homes and no changes to the Benjamin Manor development in Elizabethtown.
Therefore, please be notified the utility allowance changes will take effect August 1st, 2022. HUD regulations will permit us to grant individual relief when circumstances are beyond the resident's control or under extraordinary circumstances. Also please know the records which document the utility study and how the allowance change was calculated are available for review. Additionally, the revised utility allowance schedule will be posted in the Housing Authorities main office and may be reviewed by anyone during normal hours of operation.
All residents have the right to submit written comments on the utility allowance schedule change. Written comments should be directed to the attention of Executive Director and must be submitted no later than June 30th, 2022, close of business. All comments should be mailed to PO Box 339, Bladenboro, NC 28320 or dropped off at the office located at 706 Chestnut Street, Bladenboro.
We thank you for your cooperation and anyone with questions can contact our office at the number listed below.
