Informal Hearing and Grievance Hearing Officers Update

To All Public Housing and Housing Choice Voucher Participants
Informal Hearing and Grievance Hearing Officers Update
In efforts to improve our hearing processes, the Housing Authority has partnered with the Charleston School of Law to allow second and third year law students to complete their pro bono certification at the Housing Authority. The law students will serve as Hearing Officers for terminations of assistance for the Housing Choice Voucher Program and tenancy for the public housing program. The students will not be compensated, are not employees of the Housing Authority and have no relation to the Public Housing or Housing Choice Voucher programs. 
HUD regulations require the Authority to submit the names of the selected persons to you for review and comment. The individual will be presented to the Board of Commissioners pending notice and comment to all public housing residents and housing choice voucher participants at its regular monthly meeting:
Public Housing & Housing Choice Voucher

A message from our President/Chief Executive Officer:

The Housing Authority of the City of Charleston was born of action on December 18, 1934 by a vote of the Charleston City Council. However, the actual permission for such a "creation" came via statute in the South Carolina General Assembly in March of 1934.

We have come a long way in our society, our City and our personal relationships. Nevertheless, the need for Public housing still exists today. We have so much more to do before we can truly say, the job is done.

Donald J. Cameron
President/Chief Executive Officer
