The Resident Head of Household may opt to remove a member of the household (whether adult or minor child) from the Lease by submitting a written request to the Property Manager that indicates the member to be removed, the reason for the removal, where the member will be residing and the effective date of the change.
To do so, the Head of Household must provide documents that satisfy criteria from the following list which must total a minimum of 10 points:
Lease of removed person, evidencing his/her new address (10 POINTS)
Utility bill of removed person, evidencing his/her new address (7 POINTS)
Is head of household willing to move to a smaller apartment? (7 POINTS)

WHA checks subject apartment and finds no evidence that the culpable person is still living in the apartment (5 POINTS)
Documentation notifying the USPS of change of address for the member (5 POINTS)

If the removal of a member of the household, for any reason, results in an under‐utilized unit size, the household will be required to transfer into an available appropriately sized unit. Failure to comply is a material violation of the Lease and may result in termination of tenancy

T-Mobile has partnered with HUD to help housing authorities across the country to bridge the digital divide for underprivileged and under-served families and students.  Unlimited high-speed internet, unlimited data and a Samsung tablet offer for $10.00 per month. The housing authority will bill the participating residents monthly for the $10.00 charge. For those who choose to participate, this opportunity would ensure that student residents could complete schoolwork remotely when necessary and, for many of our tenants it would provide the ability to communicate electronically with the housing authority.  If you are interested in the program, please come by the office to fill one out.
