We are excited to be part of HUD’s Moving to Work (MTW) Cohort I Program.  This will provide us with flexibility to help improve quality of life, improve efficiency, market the Housing Choice Voucher Program, and assist residents with meeting self-sufficiency goals.  Our first MTW supplement to the annual plan was approved in 2022, and we look forward to putting our plans into action.  Please attend one of our meetings or just contact us with your thoughts on the program.

**UPDATE**

We continue to be vigilant and monitor the COVID-19 situation and current vaccine administration. The safety of our staff, clients, and the community is our utmost concern. We are dedicated to doing all we can to protect our staff and the community we serve and apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

We are in the process of setting up resident portals to allow payments online and need current email addresses if you would like to have access to this service.   Other options include using the mail or our drop boxes where you can send checks or money orders as we do not accept cash.

For housing inquiries, please email:  housingrequest@brha.com

Notice To All BRHA Residents: 

During the summer months, many of our Residents need and use window air conditioners to cool their units. While these air conditioners aide in cooling the unit, there are safety measures that Residents need to be reminded in the installation and care of a window air conditioner.

BRHA will install window air conditioner units for tenants as needed and will charge the tenant a fee. All window air conditioner units are subject to inspection by BRHA staff for  Health and Safety reasons. Please Contact the BRHA office.

According to the BRHA Lease; Section IV; Obligation of Resident; Resident Agrees:

(F.)  To comply with all obligations imposed upon by Residents by applicable provisions of building and housing codes that materially affect Health and Safety.

(Q.)   Not to install any clothes dryer, additional telephones, fences, additional locks, fixtures, radio or television antenna, or make any alterations to the premises (including wallpaper, contact paper, etc.) without prior written consent of the Landlord, and then only under the conditions given by the Landlord for such consent.

 Annual and Interim Rent Recertification

 Annual Recertification:

Each year, tenants must recertify that their information is correct, including their income and family composition. Annual recertifications are required by law. If you do not complete your annual recertification, or if you falsify information during this process, BRHA may terminate your assistance.

 Interim Recertification

If you have a change in income or family composition, it’s important to report this. These changes can affect the rent that you pay as well as the unit size for which you qualify. To report your changes,  please contact your Property Manger or submit your information via the BRHA website using the income_change@brha.com email link.
