The Boston Housing Authority Monitoring Committee is appointed by the Mayor of Boston to periodically reviews matters relating to the management and performance of the Boston Housing Authority agency. They review and approve the annual federal and state operating budget; the annual modernization applications; and all property dispositions, which would reduce the total number of housing units owned by BHA.
The Monitoring Committee is composed of nine members, at least five of those whom are BHA public housing tenants and one of whom is a BHA Section 8/Housing Choice Voucher holder. The remaining members are community representatives. Members serve a two-year term and meet at least four times a year. The Monitoring Committee was established through state legislation in 1989.
About the Department:
Boston Housing Authority (BHA) provides affordable housing to more than 58,000 residents in and around the City of Boston. Residents are assisted through a combination of public housing and federal and state voucher subsidy programs that provide a wide variety of housing opportunities. As the largest public housing authority in New England, the BHA houses close to 9 percent of the city's residents.
Our mission is to provide stable, quality affordable housing for low and moderate income persons; to deliver these services with integrity and mutual accountability; and to create living environments which serve as catalysts for the transformation from dependency to economic self-sufficiency.
