HANO recruits and trains lenders and real estate agents in the HCVP program. HANO staff also works closely with providers of soft second mortgages and other assistance programs and assists families with accessing such funding. In addition, the Department participates in the planning and monitoring of Homeownership programs that are a component of HANO s development projects. a.

If yes, list criteria below: (FY 2014 Condensed Draft Annual Plan) Page 19 of 33 form HUD (4/2008)

21 7.0 Section 8 Homeownership Capacity Statement: The Housing Authority of New Orleans (HANO) has created a Section 8 Homeownership Program to assist Section 8 families to use their rental voucher for homeownership. The final rule in 24CFR Part states that a public housing agency must demonstrate its capacity to administer the program. HANO has demonstrated this capacity by successfully assisting Section 8 families with purchasing and maintaining homes. Since the start of the program in 2001, HANO has assisted 161 voucher participants in becoming homeowners. HANO s Homeownership Program offers an array of services to interested residents. It provides direct technical assistance and referrals to families through the entire home buying process, from the completion of an application to loan closing. Staff recruits voucher families, completes intake applications, and then refers them to homebuyer education and financial fitness training to make them mortgage eligible for the Homeownership Option. Once homebuyer and financial education classes are completed and families are deemed lender ready, applicants are referred to one of HANO s approved lenders for a mortgage loan and to a real estate professional for assistance with selecting a home and completing the process to result in a closing. The Program also offers assistance to families with acquiring soft second mortgages and funding to assist with closing costs. Referrals are also made to other programs such as the Individual Development Account (IDA) program to help families save funds towards a down payment. HANO staff also trains lenders and realtors in the Section 8 Program. HANO offers direct and referral postclosing counseling and other assistance to families that become homeowners. (e) Project-Based Vouchers Pursuant to initial guidance published by HUD regarding the Section 8 Project-Based Voucher (PBV) Program in the January 16, 2001 Federal Register, Volume 66, Number 10, this addendum serves to declare that the Housing Authority of New Orleans intends to continue to operate a PBV Program as authorized by HUD and in conformity with all nondiscriminatory requirements specified in the PHA Plan regulations and further declares that the HANO shall affirmatively further fair housing as required by these regulations. Project-basing in Orleans Parish is a viable and important option to tenant-based assistance because PBVs support redevelopment and revitalization efforts made necessary since Hurricane Katrina. HANO s Administrative Plan allows for HANO to consider applications for PBV assistance using both the competitive and non-competitive methods as appropriate and allowable under regulations and statute. HANO will also select properties for PBV subsidy as replacement units for displaced families as part of the Choice Neighborhood Initiative Grant (CNI). The majority of Census Tracts in the City of New Orleans have poverty rates greater than 20%, including tracts that include conventional and scattered site developments and much of the City s blighted housing. Therefore, some PBV units will be located in census tracts with poverty rates greater than 20%. However HANO will use its PBV Program to offer participant families a greater choice of quality and affordable housing. As part of CNI, HANO will provide 405 PBV replacement units. These replacement units have been noted by HUD as being integral to rebuilding the core of New Orleans. Additional housing development selected under the PBV program will conform to all relevant HUD requirements and goals specified in the HCVP Administrative Plan and the PHA Plan. The Housing Authority of New Orleans intends to fully utilize its maximum allowable allocation of units for the PBV Program as defined by twenty percent (20%) of its budget authority for HANO s Housing Choice Voucher Program. Effective April 9, 2013, the HANO Voucher budget authority was $125,861, Therefore it is anticipated that HANO intends to project-base approximately $25,172, in budget authority. This amount is anticipated to assist approximately 2,800 units, including those units currently under AHAP or HAP. HANO currently has 195 units under Agreement to enter into Housing Assistance Payments Contract at two housing sites and anticipates entering into contracts for an additional 104 units in the near future. With the current 1,169 units under HAP, HANO s PBV commitments and anticipated commitments total 1,468. A breakdown of the units is listed below.

29 10.0 Additional Information. Describe the following, as well as any additional information HUD has requested. (a) Progress in Meeting Mission and Goals. Provide a brief statement of the PHA s progress in meeting the mission and goals described in the 5- Year Plan. HOUSING AUTHORITY OF NEW ORLEANS STATEMENT OF PROGRESS IN MEETING MISSION AND GOALS In November of 2010, after extensive stakeholder consultation, the Housing Authority of New Orleans (HANO) adopted a comprehensive Recovery Work Plan for the Agency s rehabilitation, restoration, and return to local governance. The Plan defined detailed steps to accomplish this overriding goal and laid out objectives, tasks, subtasks, and timelines for all HANO departments. During the Recovery Work Plan implementation period, which is nearing completion, significant strides were made throughout the organization. Extensive fiscal reforms were instituted and HANO is now on strong financial footing. The Agency has advanced from troubled to standard performer status under HUD s Public Housing and Section 8 assessment systems. New partnerships were also created and ties reestablished with the larger New Orleans community. With this foundation now firmly in place, efforts are underway to transition HANO back to local control. The following report highlights HANO s progress by functional area: Human Resources The Human Resources Department (HRD) continues to recruit high-caliber candidates for positions throughout the organization. Following a Compensation and Classification Study, salary inequities were addressed and structured pay plans implemented. Pay schedules now include a step system, which allows for more transparency, consistency and fairness in wage and salary administration. HANO s newly-designed Performance Management System begins with dialogue between the supervisor and the employee in setting performance goals followed by: continuous informal feedback; a mid-year review; self-assessment; and a final annual review at the end of the performance period. The Crisis Leave Policy was revised so that qualifying employees may now request up to 160 hours of crisis leave if the need arises. Finance The Housing Authority of New Orleans continues to make significant progress in managing the financial resources of the Agency and restoring public confidence in HANO s capacity to safeguard the assets of the organization. For the third consecutive year, the Agency submitted its financial audit to the State of Louisiana Legislative Auditor on time. HANO also produced a balanced budget for the past three years, each year ending with a slight surplus. Policies and procedures governing core financial activities were developed and implemented; vendors are being paid on time; and strong fiscal controls were put in place to ensure the appropriate segregation of duties to mitigate fraud, waste, and abuse. The Finance Department has undergone considerable restructuring and is now staffed with experienced, competent professionals. HANO has also improved its accounting procedures and financial reporting. A new financial management system was implemented enabling HANO to produce system-generated monthly financial statements including budgetto-actual reports for its 43 Asset Management Projects (AMPs) and 16 programs, all of which is critical for prudent financial management and decision making. Housing Choice Voucher Program Over 17,000 families are assisted under HANO s Housing Choice Voucher Program (HCVP), which is currently 100% leased up. Operational improvements for 2012 include passing HUD's Section Eight Management Assessment Program (SEMAP) Certification, making HANO s HCVP a standard performer. Also, a system of Project Based Voucher (PBV) site-based waiting lists is being developed to expedite leasing of PBV units associated with the Program. Through its partnership with the HUD-Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (VASH) Program, HANO was awarded an additional 50 vouchers to assist homeless veterans bringing the total to 150. Enrollment in the HCV Family Self-Sufficiency Program has increased to 423 active participants of the required program size of 540 participants.

30 10.0 Real Estate Planning and Development The Real Estate Planning and Development Department continues to implement the Strategic Plan developed in Departmental capacity increased significantly in the last year, adding seven permanent staff members in HANO is working more closely with local agencies, most notably with the Orleans Parish School Board to optimize redevelopment of large HANO and OPSB-owned sites. Demolition of the Christopher Park site is underway and demolition of Press Park is expected to begin in Continuing redevelopment, modernization, and homeownership initiatives throughout the portfolio include: o Big Four Redevelopment: Phase IA of Marrero Commons (formerly B.W. Cooper), consisting of 250 units, is 95% occupied.

Faubourg Lafitte s Phase II, consisting of 142 units, was completed in December of In total, 276 units have been completed to date. Construction is expected to begin in 2013 on Phase III, consisting of 100 Elderly units, and 89 Market Rate Rental units. Construction of 52 Homeownership units is expected to begin in early Columbia Parc s Phase I (466 units), Phase IIA (49 units), and IIB (48 units) are complete. Construction of Phase III, consisting of 120 Elderly units, is 95% complete and lease up is underway. In total, 563 units have been completed to date. The Harmony Oaks site, consisting of 460 units, is 100% complete.

Demolition of selected buildings and construction of Phases I and II onsite is slated to begin in the summer of Construction of 114 senior replacement units at 1501 Canal Street began in 2012 and scheduled for completion in Strategic Planning In collaboration with all departments and the Resident Advisory Board, the Strategic Planning Department coordinated the preparation of HANO s current FY 2013 Public Housing Agency (PHA) Plan which was submitted timely and approved by HUD on October 25, 2012, permitting the drawdown of HANO s $20.6 million capital fund grant allocations for the fiscal year. In the first half of calendar year 2012, SPD s Director served on the City of New Orleans Consolidated Plan Steering Committee comprised of interagency representatives and community stakeholders charged with providing feedback and recommendations to all elements of the City s Consolidated Plan for SPD also prepared a new HANO Designated Housing Plan that will be in effect for five years, expanding the Agency s HUD- (FY 2014 Condensed Draft Annual Plan) Page 29 of 33 form HUD (4/2008)

31 10.0 approved designation from 344 to 501 public housing units restricted to elderly-only occupancy. The Department assisted with the B.W. Cooper Oral History Project which evolved from the site s Section 106 preservation agreement. SPD also works closely with HANO s affiliate entities, including Crescent Affordable Housing Corporation which is a 501(c)(3) subsidiary dedicated to furthering the Agency s mission. Senior Advisor to the Administrative Receiver HANO s connection to the larger New Orleans community continues to be strengthened. HANO and the City of New Orleans have developed a strong partnership for the implementation of the Choice Neighborhoods Initiative grant to revitalize Iberville/Tremé, and to work closely with developers, Iberville residents, and community stakeholders. HANO s staff meets regularly with the City Administration and Mayor s Office, City Council members, Orleans Parish School Board, other local and state agencies, foundations, community housing organizations and non-profits, and other community partners. HANO is represented at a variety of forums and meetings, and continues to build partnerships to address strategic initiatives such as reuse of scattered sites properties, HANO s Career Academy, and HANO s new criminal background policy. Asset Management HANO s Asset Management Department experienced a high degree of performance at both the selfmanaged and third-party managed site levels in large part due to an increased management focus on operational and financial benchmarks. Public housing occupancy rates, unit turnaround, work order completion and rent collections were successful throughout The few properties that had slightly lower occupancy rates were in need of modernization or rehabilitation work either in response to Hurricane Isaac damages or planned upgrades. Last year s addition of a non-emergency Public Housing Hotline has enhanced the agency s overall response time to maintenance issues, thus improving tenant relations and also driving higher performance. Ongoing employee skills assessment, staff trainings and implementation of the Department s maintenance plan is expected to bolster this trend into the coming year. HANO Police On June 21, 2011, Act 117 was signed into law by Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal authorizing HANO to commission its own peace officers. Thus, the HANO Police Department (HANOPD) was established, enabling officers to respond to calls for police service by residents at HANO sites. With respect to personnel, the HANOPD has expanded to twenty (20) officers with the hiring of eight (8) officers during the past year. HANOPD continues to upgrade its equipment with the purchase of additional police vehicles, laptops and Electronic Control Weapons (Tasers). A state-of-the art digital mobile radio system was also installed, providing advanced capabilities and enabling communication with other regional law enforcement agencies. HANOPD officers have been involved in various training opportunities including the Peace Officer Standards Training (POST), as well as Tasers and Active Shooters courses. Promoting community safety and awareness, members of HANOPD and NOPD have worked together in organizing Neighborhood Watch for residents of the Fischer, Harmony Oaks, and Desire communities. The efforts of HANOPD in cooperation with the NOPD have resulted in an overall reduction in crime in public housing for Client Services Since the latter part of 2010, HANO s Client Services Department has provided support, counseling, and coordination to over 780 residents being relocated due to redevelopment and demolition projects. Implementation of a Tracking-At-A-Glance (TAAG) system has enabled staff to monitor and report on supportive services Agency-wide. For three years, HANO has funded and administered a Summer Employment Program for youth ages with 100 program participants in 2010, 110 participants in 2011, and 118 participants in Youth were placed at businesses and organizations throughout the city providing them with practical work experience supported by Lifeskills and Job Readiness training at (FY 2014 Condensed Draft Annual Plan) Page 30 of 33 form HUD (4/2008)

32 10.0 Dillard University on Fridays. HANO s Homeownership Department was transferred to Client Services in October of 2012 and an extensive outreach program was begun to increase awareness and participation in homeownership for public housing residents and voucher participants. A total of 89 homeownership closings were completed by HANO in calendar years 2011 and Through intensive efforts over the past 18 months, enrollment in HANO s Public Housing Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) Program has increased to fifty-three (53) residents, exceeding the program s goal of 40 residents by 33%. Client Services also played a key role in implementing the Agency s revised Employment, Training, and Contracting Plan adopted in March 2012 to ensure that Section 3 hiring of low-income residents is a requirement, not a goal, in HANO contracts. Legal/Risk Management In calendar year 2012, with the hiring of an in-house litigation attorney, the HANO Legal Department closed an additional 27 cases from a high of 160 open litigation matters to 133 open cases. Over the next fiscal year, HANO Legal expects to close at least another files. The Legal Department will see additional cost savings by increasing its in-house capacity for handling litigation matters. The Legal Department has begun working closely with the Housing Choice Voucher Program on the administrative hearing process, and will be conducting more in-depth training as new hearing officers are hired. Within the next year, HANO s legal team expects to close out several large class action litigation matters that have been ongoing for years. The Legal Department has hired a full-time risk manager and expects to implement additional training for staff on risk mitigation measures. Risk Management is also conducting more robust property reviews for purposes of insurance coverage which should reduce HANO s premium costs going forward. Information Technology Over the course of last 18 months, HANO s Information Technology (IT) Department has coordinated two major software installations. Oracle s JD Edwards EnterpriseOne software which combines financial, budgeting, procurement, grants and projects management systems was implemented in August 2011; and the Emphasys Elite software which replaced the previous Housing Choice Voucher Program (HCVP) software system in December 2011 and the Public Housing Program software system in April The IT Department continuously works to improve the Agency s performance by focusing on the technology needs of individual HANO departments. Highlights include: the development of a new Vendor Portal which streamlines registration and other vendor processes; development of a Waitlist Portal giving applicants the ability to go on online and check their number/position on the HCVP waitlist; and development of a Landlord Portal providing access to tenant information, payment history, inspection results and other user data. Bridging the informational gap, HANO recently launched a new Mobile Computer Lab which houses 16 Wi-Fi equipped laptops that can be setup in any indoor or outdoor space regardless of electrical availability. Although the initial curriculum focuses on basic computer skills for senior participants, the Mobile Lab will be available to every HANO community providing increased access to employment, educational, and social opportunities through the use of technology. Procurement and Contracts The new JD Edwards EnterpriseOne software system has enabled HANO s Procurement and Contracts staff to streamline processes; perform tasks more efficiently; and provide expeditious service to user departments. Also, in July 2011, a Contract Administrator was hired to ensure that HANO s contractors perform in accordance with the terms, conditions, and specifications of their contracts or purchase orders. In August 2012, the Department hosted a Vendor Opportunity and Resource Fair. The fair brought together local, small and disadvantaged businesses with representatives from federal, state and local agencies, workforce and small business development agencies, and financial institutions. The event was a great success as participants took part in a variety of seminars and many new vendors registered to do business with HANO. HANO also launched a Vendor Portal to offer a completely automated registration process. Using the Portal, vendors can now create and maintain their profiles on-line, receive solicitations specific to their products and services, and easily certify as a HANO DBE/WBE/Section 3 Business.

33 Communications The Communications Department has developed a plan to increase resident and stakeholder outreach. In the immediate past, the Agency relied heavily on the local media to provide updates to HANO's clientele which became challenging in announcing new programs and other positive news. As part of this outreach initiative, the Administrative Receiver participates in monthly interviews on WBOK 1230AM radio station, and HANO news, the Agency s newsletter, is distributed to all HANO clients as well as to city, state and federal agencies. The Communications Department worked with the Information Technology Department to add a news alert banner to the home page of the website, and continues to provide regular updates to the news bulletin. The Department is also developing an electronic communication system that will provide participating HANO residents with direct concerning Agency announcements, program updates, emergency preparedness, and local job opportunities. Lastly, HANO Communications will utilize social media tactics by introducing Facebook and Twitter accounts within the next few months. Internal Compliance The Office of Internal Compliance (OIC) established and monitors its Fraud phone hotline and webpage which provide a source for employees and the public to report tips on alleged improprieties. These tips are researched and referred to HANO s Police Department, Housing Choice Voucher Program (HCVP), and/or other outside agencies as deemed necessary. Through implementation of HANO s Long-Range Internal Audit Plan, procedural reviews were performed in the areas of Public Housing, HCVP, Homeownership, and Finance along with special reviews as requested. This body of work serves as an ongoing mechanism for risk assessment and evaluation of internal controls. In addition, mandatory annual and quarterly agency-wide Ethics training for all current employees is given/coordinated by the OIC in order to promote a high level of awareness throughout the HANO organization (b) Significant Amendment and Substantial Deviation/Modification. Provide the PHA s definition of significant amendment and substantial deviation/modification The Housing Authority of New Orleans will use the guidance provided by HUD in Notice to define the terms substantial deviation and significant amendment or modification to determine when the approved Agency Plan will be required to undergo the detailed modification process outlined by HUD. The criteria for such modification will include the following: Changes to Public Housing Admissions and Occupancy Policies or organization of the Public Housing waiting list other than those items already identified in the current revised version of the Admissions and Occupancy Policy. Additions or subtractions of a non-emergency work item that is $2.5 million or more and which is not included in the annual or five-year plan under the Capital Fund. Any changes with regard to demolition or disposition, designation, homeownership program or conversion activities not currently identified in the plan or otherwise approved by HUD. Changes under the above definitions, required as the result of HUD regulatory requirements will not be considered significant amendments. Changes under the above definitions which are funded by any source other than federal funds will not require amendment or modification to the Agency Plan.
