The Quality Housing and Work Responsibility Act of 1998 requires public housing authorities to prepare a five year plan and annual operating plans. Both plans govern the Public Housing and Housing Choice Voucher programs and must include information as to the housing needs of the locality, population served, method of rent determination, general operating policies and procedures, capital improvements, unmet housing needs of families with incomes less than 30 percent of median income, and efforts to coordinate programs. Following are the current plans for the Wichita Housing Authority (WHA).
