After the comment period closes on Sept. 30, staff will brief the SHA Board of Commissioners on all comments received. This may result in modifications to the Plan or Budget. At the Board of Commissioners virtual Board Meeting in October, the Board will vote on the 2022 Budget and 2022 MTW Plan. If adopted by the Board, the MTW Plan will be submitted to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for final approval. The 2022 Budget does not require approval by HUD.
