General Information:
Programs and Services The agency operates several different programs in order to meet its goals. Affordable rents for income-eligible individuals and families are found in the agency’s 1600 public housing apartments and townhouses that are located in 8 different developments throughout the City of Reading. Through the Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8) Program, more than 600 city residents are assisted in paying their rent to private landlords. In our two privately owned (non-‘subsidized’) locations, townhouses are available for those with moderate incomes. Through on-site maintenance and management of its public housing programs, the ‘landlord’ functions of RHA are vastly important. The agency ensures the decency of its properties by enforcing rules that support the well-being of the high-rise or development. Routine maintenance assures that properties are clean and well kept, and modernization is ongoing. Attention to security is featured at each location. Services are provided at each development to promote residents’ self-sufficiency goals, and formal partnerships are established between the agency and its residents groups to ensure that participant input is included in all operations.
