Informal hearings regarding denial of admission to the Housing Choice Voucher or Public Housing programs or termination of assistance must be requested in writing and postmarked within ten (10) days of the date of the notification letter. Notification letters will contain the necessary contact information.
The informal hearing is held by a fair and impartial Hearing Officer. Once the informal hearing has been scheduled, correspondence stating the date, time, and location of the informal hearing will be sent to the prospect or tenant. The applicable Hearing Rules and Procedures will be included in the correspondence. The prospect or tenant will meet with the Hearing Officer to present evidence as to why the decision should be overturned. Once a decision is rendered HASLC notifies the prospect or tenant of the decision.
