LTO To Hold General Membership Meeting Tonight

The Lakewood Tenants Organization, (LTO)  which administers one of 3 local HUD-funded rental assistance programs, will hold its annual meeting at the Municipal auditorium tonight. Some of the questions and issues to be discussed at tonight’s public meeting, are as follows:

1. Why isn’t LTRAP opening its Waiting List? Why does the LTRAP Waiting List move so slowly?

2. I understand that LTRAP uses a tiered Asset Preference. What effect did this have on progress in the Waiting List? If I have assets, will I ever be assisted?

3. I recently received a letter stating that your office needs an approved Construction Plan of my unit? What is this? Where do I get it? What are you using it for? Will there be any effect on my subsidy payment?

4. My caseworker gave me some Change Forms and told me to send one in every time there is a change to my household or income. Must I send in a form for every change even if my income decreases? How soon after the change must I report it to your agency?

5. My friend told me that he received money from the Family Self-Sufficiency Program and was able to use it as a down-payment for a new home. How can I join? Is this Program open to all LTRAP Section 8 participants?

6. Homeownership vs. Leasing: What are the advantages? Is there a time cap? What if I want to refinance? Can I buy a home and still participate on other government programs?

TIME: 8:45 P.M. (Maariv 9:30 P.M.)
