Administrator’s Welcome!

BHA Administrator Bill McGonagle announces launch of a new and improved website.

We’re very pleased and excited to launch this new website!  It is our hope and goal to provide our applicants, public housing and leased housing residents, and landlords with the tools and information they need in order to participate in all that the BHA has to offer.
 
New features on the site include a Housing Search Tool, an Apartment Listing for Section 8 voucher holders, and a tool for landlords to post available apartments independently!  We also have a number of vehicles to share information with you that include our Facebook and Flickr pages and Constant Contact, where you can sign up for automatic email alerts for job and bid postings, news, and open public comment periods regarding BHA policies.  Questions or comments can be sent to us through our new online form as well.
 
BHA works hard to provide quality housing and uses programs like energy efficiency contracts to leverage resources, improve public housing, and save energy and taxpayer dollars.  In addition, the BHA’s latest energy efficiency contract, the largest in the nation, has led to the creation of training and employment opportunities through Building Pathways, a Building Trades pre-apprenticeship program for BHA and other low-income city residents.  Redevelopment activities include the Whittier Choice Plan for Transformation. To improve services and quality of life for BHA elderly and disabled residents, we’ve been Making Connections and surveying BHA seniors and persons with disabilities throughout the city.  We will continue to work together to create better housing and opportunities that enhance the lives of all of our residents.
 
I invite you to take a stroll through the site and send us your feedback through our Comment/Request Form.  In addition, we will be implementing portals for landlords, residents and applicants in the near future that will allow individual account capability and information sharing.  As with all websites, this one is a continual work in progress so please check back now and again for updates and improvements. 
 
Bill McGonagle, BHA Administrator
