Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8) Administrative Plan
SFHA Agency Plan
The Housing and Work Responsibility Act of 1998 mandates that all public housing authorities submit an annual plan. The San Francisco Housing Authority's PHA Annual Plan is a "road map" on how the agency proposes to do business.
A HUD- Approved Annual Plan will provide the vehicle for the San Francisco Housing Authority to do the following:
1. Manage the Housing Choice Voucher Wait List;
2. Provide guidance to SFHA Employees in enforcing lease requirements and other HUD regulations;
3. Allocate the Capitol Fund Program funds to make health and safety improvements to our public housing sites; and
4. Allocate funding for supplemental services.
San Francisco Housing Authority Strategic Plan
Strategic planning is an organization's process of defining, often in hyperbolic terms, its strategy, or direction, and making decisions on allocating its resources to pursue this strategy, including its capital and people. Various business analysis techniques can be used in strategic planning, including SWOT analysis (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats), PEST analysis (Political, Economic, Social, adn Technological), STEER analysis (Socio-cultural, Technological, Economic, Ecological, and Regulatory Factors), and EPISTEL (Environment, Political, Informatic, Social, Technological, Economic and Legal).
Strategic planning is the formal consideration of an organizations future course. All strategic planning deals with at least one of three key questions:
What do we do?
For whom do we do it?
How do we excel?
In many organizations, this is viewed as a process for determining where an organization is going over the next year or—more typically—3 to 5 years (long term), although some extend their vision to 20 years. The San Francisco Housing Authority has created a Strategic Plan for the next five years. In order to determine where it is going, the organization needs to know exactly where it stands, then determine where it wants to go and how it will get there. The resulting document is called the "strategic plan."
Limited English Proficiency Plan (LEP)
The San Francisco Housing Authority has adopted this plan to provide meaningful access to its programs and activities by persons with Limited English Proficiency ("LEP"). In accordance with Federal guidelines the SFHA will make reasonable efforts to provide or arrange free language assistance for its LEP clients, including applicants, recipients and/or persons eligible for public housing, Section 8/Housing Choice Vouchers, homeownership and other SFHA programs.
