UHA Resident Advisory Board (RAB)

 

 

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT:  UHA is Seeking Volunteers to Serve on the Resident Advisory Board

In October the Upland Housing Authority (UHA) made an announcement on its website and sent emails to the families it serves through the Public Housing and Section 8 programs asking for volunteers for the Resident Advisory Board (RAB).  The RAB assists UHA by sharing and giving feedback that help in developing and making changes to program policies.  Unfortunately, UHA did not receive enough volunteers to form the RAB.  Because too few applications were received, UHA has designated all families that UHA assists as members of this year's RAB.

What This Means For You:  IF YOU ARE A PARTICIPANT OF UHA'S PROGRAMS YOU ARE A MEMBER OF UHA'S RAB.  YOU ARE INVITED TO ATTEND A MEETING TO DISCUSS UHA'S PROPOSED POLICY CHANGES FOR 2016.  THE MEETING IS OPTIONAL.  THE MEETING WILL BE HELD AT 1:00P.M. ON THURSDAY, DECEMBER 10, 2015 AT THE UHA OFFICE.  SEATING IS LIMITED.  PLEASE RSVP TO DON SWIFT AT (909) 982-2649, EXTENSION 109

You can also review proposed policies on UHA's website.  The proposed policies will be posted on the website by the end of the day on November 20, 2015, to open the 45 day public comment period.  Anyone may review the policies and submit their comments to UHA.  All comments will be due to UHA on or before Tuesday, January 5, 2016 (by 4:30 p.m.).  A public comment form will be made available on the website on November 20.

 

About the Resident Advisory Board

 

WHAT THE RESIDENT ADVISORY BOARD DOES

Serving on the RAB gives UHAís assisted families an opportunity to participate in guiding UHAís programs and policies. The RABís job is to review the PHA Plan and to communicate ideas and feedback about the plan to UHA. In order to meet these requirements, members of the RAB must be able to:

  • Meet at the UHA offices during business hours to review the PHA Plan;

  • Review lengthy written materials;

  • Clearly communicate ideas and feedback;

  • Work constructively with a group.

 

WHAT THE RESIDENT ADVISORY BOARD DOESNíT DO

The role of the RAB is limited to assisting UHA with developing the PHA Plan. The RAB does not:

  • Set policies for the Public Housing or Section 8 programs;

  • Establish budgets;

  • Set administrative procedures.

 

BENEFITS OF SERVING ON THE RESIDENT ADVISORY BOARD

Serving on the RAB is an opportunity to share your thoughts and ideas for UHAís Public Housing and Section 8 programs. Additionally, time spent working with the RAB can be used to satisfy the community service requirement for Public Housing residents.

 

IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN SERVING ON THE RESIDENT ADVISORY BOARD

Members of the RAB are appointed by UHA. Interested persons must submit an application and meet the eligibility criteria. To be considered for the RAB, you must:

  1. Download the application.  Please note:  The application period for the current Resident Advisory Board is closed and UHA is no longer accepting applications at this time.  UHA will make an announcement when we begin accepting applications again, which is expected to be in October 2016.

  2. Be available to attend several meetings at the UHA office between 7:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. on weekdays.

  3. Commit to service on the RAB. The RAB can only function if its members attend all meetings, come prepared to work with the group, and provide constructive feedback on the information presented to them.

 

UHA will review applications and may conduct interviews with applicants in order to identify RAB appointees. RAB participants will be appointed for a term of one (1) year. UHA will notify applicants in writing of appointment status.
