The BHA's Modernization Department manages the capital improvements program for the family and elderly/disabled public housing developments. The capital program includes the development and oversight of state-funded (DHCD) and federally-funded (HUD) capital budgets, long-term planning and the selection and management of architects/engineers and contractors.
Priority goals for the capital program are to maintain the BHA's housing in good, safe condition and accessible for all. Modernization efforts such as new roofs, improved heating systems and controls, plumbing or electrical system replacements, brick repointing and more.
Resident involvement is encouraged in the capital program with needs assessment meetings, designer selection committees, temporary relocation planning (when needed) and ongoing project meetings. The department staff works closely with residents, other BHA staff and the outside contractors to ensure that schedules and budgets are met and that these major investments support BHA's overall mission to provide stable, quality and affordable housing.
