SB12-158 - Consolidate Public Housing Agencies In DOLA

Passed/Signed into Law
Concerning The Consolidation Of Two Public Housing Agencies Within The Division Of Housing In The Department Of Local Affairs.

The division of housing in the department of local affairs (DOLA) is a public housing agency that provides financial and other assistance to individuals in low- and moderate-income households. The division also administers various state housing programs and the supportive housing program, a public housing agency that provides financial and other assistance to persons with disabilities. The bill provides for consolidation of the 2 public housing agencies in such a manner that the division of housing in DOLA will be the only public housing agency and serve as the sole state agency for the purpose of administering and distributing financial housing assistance to persons in low- and moderate-income households and to persons with disabilities.

The homeless prevention activities program is currently administered by a nongovernmental agency selected by the executive director of the department of human services. The bill would require the division of housing in DOLA to administer the program.
