The Section 8 Program was enacted as part of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, which recodified the U.S. Housing Act of 1937. The Act has been amended from time to time, and its requirements, as they apply to the Section 8 Certificate and Voucher Programs, are described in and implemented through this Administrative Plan. The purpose of this amendment is to bring the Administrative Plan into compliance with the applicable provisions contained in the Quality Housing and Work Responsibility Act of 1998. It is to be noted that the plan materials covering the October 1, 1999 merger of the Section 8 Certificate and Voucher Programs into one program, called the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program are included herein under addendum Plll-1. Upon completion of the lengthy process involved in converting Section 8 Certificates to Housing Choice Vouchers the Section 8 Administrative Plan will be amended to reflect deletion of all references to the Section 8 Certificate Program. Administration of the Section 8 Program and the functions and responsibilities of the Housing Authority (HA) staff shall be in compliance with the HA's Personnel Policy and the Department of Housing and Urban Development's (HUD) Section 8 Regulations as well as all Federal State and local Fair Housing Laws and Regulations.
