DMMHA Agency Plan


As required by the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development, the Agency Plan is a comprehensive guide to DMMHA’s policies, programs, operations, and strategies for meeting local housing needs and goals.  There are two parts to the Agency Plan, the Five-year Plan which is submitted to HUD once every fifth fiscal year and the Annual Plan which is submitted to HUD every year.  It is through the Annual Agency Plan that DMMHA receives funding for capital improvements for the Public Housing program.  The Agency Plan process is an annual opportunity to determine the role of DMMHA in the community, both currently and in the future.  Strategic planning helps DMMHA decide what mechanisms it will use to reach its goals.

 

The City of Des Moines Municipal Housing Agency is very interested in receiving comments on the proposed Agency plan and policy revisions. These comments will be reviewed prior to finalization of the Plan and policies.

 

Comments must be received prior to Wednesday, March 19, 2014 at 4:00 pm to be considered
