The history of (CHA)is poverty. It was a terrible idea to put all of those low-income people into big buldings, in apartments one on top of the other. Public housing was nice until Mayor Daley begging using to segregate the city's rapidly growing blacks.

African Americans in Chicago lived in an area called the Black Belt. The real estate people and banks had a covenant amongst each other to try and discourage African Americans from moving out of that area. Since they were confined to this one area, it began to overpopulate. Houses were being filled with too many people which created even worse living conditions than what already existed. So this is where the CHA came in. They built these high rises in the area so there wouldn't be over crowded homes, but to also keep them in the black neighborhood. This is why the majority of the former Robert Taylor homes were all along State Street from about 35th street to 55th. That area was the black belt.

Berkeley county does not have its own Housing Authority. South Carolina regional Housing Authority, in Columbia, has information as to which regional Housing Authority covers this jurisdiction. To get in touch with South Carolina regional Housing Authority, call 803-896-8888. They do not cover Berkeley county either, but they have information as to the other regional Housing Authority that does.

Check with you local Housing Authority there. This is known as Porting. You have to talk to the Housing Authority in CO and make the plans with your existing Housing Authority.

Yes. Your HAP contract says nothing about obligating you to keep the house.

This type of transfer is called porting. You are porting from an initial Housing Authority to a receiving Housing Authority. In order for this to happen either the initial Housing Authority must agree to pay the receiving Housing Authority all the costs associated with the porting and continued administration of your program, or the receiving Housing Authority must agree to absorb the costs of such. The problem generally occurs when you're trying to port your voucher from one Housing Authority to a more expensive jurisdiction.

Call your local Housing Authority or the Housing Authority at which you would like to place your name on the waiting list.

Your porting costs are either ABSORBED by the receiving Housing Authority, or BILLED to the initial Housing Authority.

You will have to check with that Housing Authority, for each Housing Authority has its own guidelines by which it selects its applicants for the program.

The housing authority helps you receive your own home with a low mortgage. The housing authority is ran by the government and has been assisting people for many years.

Report it to the Landlord and to the Housing Authority that is servicing the voucher. If you can't determine the Housing Authority that is servicing the voucher, write to every Housing Authority in that jurisdiction.
