Due to the limiting of public gatherings because of the Coronavirus, the Lackawanna Municipal Housing Authority has had to cancel the in person public hearing for the 5 year annual plan and 5 year CFP budget. In accordance with HUD rules and for the safety of the residents and employees we will be holding this via conference call on Friday, April 10th, 2020 at 9:15am. To reach the conference call you will have to call the number 716-348-3783 and enter the pin number 0135 followed by the # sign. Once on the call the 5 year plan will be presented and then opened up for questions.
The health and safety of both our residents and employees is the primary goal of the LMHA. With that in mind, until further notice the Authority will be taking the following steps due to the Coronavirus:
1. All offices will be closed in an attempt to limit face to face interaction. The staff will still be working, if
you need to contact us you can do so by calling 716-823-2551 or 716-348-3783.
2. All payments, re-certification papers, and any other paperwork should be left in the Dropbox (please make sure your phone number is listed on anything you hand in). Any receipts or copies of pay stubs will be mailed back to you.
3. Maintenance staff will only be going into your apartment for emergency situations. When the staff is in your apartment we ask you to practice “social distancing”. You should stay at least 6 feet away from maintenance workers at all times.
We ask that you visit the following website for tips on how you can help protect yourself and others from contracting the Coronavirus.
