Board of Commissioners

Board of Commissioners

Local Housing Authorities are run by a Board of Commissioners made up of involved, committed residents of the municipality in which they are located.

 

A Local Housing Authority is the principal housing advocate within its community, charged with the responsibility to plan and implement a balanced housing program.  In addition to planning, advocacy, and determining the needs of the low-income population, the Board has the responsibility for placing the agency's operations in the context of policy. 

 

 All of the laws, regulations, and local requirements which impact the operations, residents and staff of a local housing authority are placed within the framework of policy by it's Board of Commissioners.

 

Membership on the Needham Housing Authority Board of Commissioners is determined by state law. 

 

The Board consists of five (5) members, four of whom are elected through the normal town electoral process.  The fifth member is appointed by the Governor.

Needham Housing Authority Board meetings are held monthly and are open to the public.
