A housing authority is responsible for the management and operation of its local public housing program. They may also operate other types of housing programs.
Assure compliance with leases. The lease must be signed by both parties.
Set other charges (e.g., security deposit, excess utility consumption, and damages to unit).
Perform periodic reexaminations of the family's income at least once every 12 months.
Transfer families from one unit to another, in order to correct over/under crowding, repair or renovate a dwelling, or because of a resident's request to be transferred.
Terminate leases when necessary.
Maintain the development in a decent, safe, and sanitary condition.
Sometimes housing authorities provide other services, that might include such things as: homeownership opportunities for qualified families; employment training opportunities, and other special training and employment programs for residents; and support programs for the elderly.
