The Monitoring Committee is appointed by the Mayor of Boston to periodically review matters relating to the management and performance of Boston Housing Authority (BHA), and to report these matters to the Mayor. The committee reviews and approves the annual federal and state operating budget, the annual modernization applications, and all property dispositions which would reduce the total number of housing units owned by BHA.
The Monitoring Committee is composed of nine members, and at least five of those are public housing tenants. Members serve a two-year term and meet at least four times a year. The next Monitoring Committee is currently pending appointment; there is no sitting committee at this time.
The Monitoring Committee was established through state legislation in 1989.
