The Santa Fe County Housing Authority is updating its current Schedule of Charges. The Schedule of Charges is a document listing the cost of service to public housing residents for work performed by housing maintenance staff that is not considered normal wear. The Schedule of Charges provides housing residents with the expected cost of repair for these types of repairs when they are deemed necessary. The Draft Schedule of Charges document can be reviewed at the three public housing sites operated by the Santa Fe County Housing Authority. For information on where these locations are and when they are open please call the Housing Authority at 505-992-3060. The main office is located at 52 Camino de Jacobo in Santa Fe. If there should be any questions or concerns regarding the Draft Schedule of Charges, please provide your response to the Santa Fe County Housing Authority. Any expressed concerns will be included for consideration prior to official action by the Housing Board to approve this draft schedule.
It is the mission of the Santa Fe County Housing Authority to provide drug-free, safe, decent and sanitary housing to low-income and very low-income families in an environment that fosters self-sufficiency and community pride.
The Santa Fe County Housing Authority was created on November 17, 1972 and remains one of the largest landlords in Santa Fe. The Housing Authority currently manages 200 public housing units and 241 Housing Choice Vouchers (previously called Section 8). The Housing Authority also manages a Housing Choice Voucher Homeownership Program, Family Self-Sufficiency Program (FSS), and the Capital Fund Program (CFP). The Housing Authority’s budget primarily consists of rental income and subsidies provided by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
To qualify for housing assistance, families must qualify as low income (below 80 percent of the area median income). The income limits that are published annually in the Federal Register dictate what these figures are and will determine income eligibility.
The Housing Authority has also implemented a Working Family Preference. Applicants who have been working a minimum of 24 hours per week at minimum wage for the previous 6 months qualify for the preference. Applicants who are attending school full-time (12 credit hours per semester) or who are participating in a self-sufficiency program also receive the preference.
Families who are determined to be elderly, handicapped or disabled also receive a preference.
Guidelines that regulate the Pubic Housing Program are stipulated in the Housing Authority’s Admissions and Continued Occupancy Policy (ACOP). The Guidelines that regulate the Housing Choice Voucher Program are stipulated in the Administrative Plan. The Family Self-Sufficiency Program guidelines are contained in the Program’s Action Plan. These guidelines are posted in the lobby of the Housing Authority’s Administration Office.
