NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING
The Hawaii Public Housing Authority (HPHA), Department of Human Services, hereby provides notice that it will hold public hearings on the Title II Transition Plan.
Background: HPHA is currently developing its Title II Transition Plan. The purpose of the Transition Plan is to plan accessibility compliance for the HPHA with the requirements of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Fair Housing Act, Title II of the Americans with Disabilities, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and applicable state regulations. The Transition Plan sets forth the HPHA’s strategy to complete essential structural changes to its properties in order to ensure all programs and activities are readily accessible to and usable by individuals with disabilities.
The purpose of the public hearing is to take testimony and gather comments from the public. There will be no presentation, discussion or revisions made on the draft Plan at the public hearing. HPHA staff will review all comments and, where appropriate, make necessary changes to the proposed Plan before its final approval by the Board of Directors.
