Proposed Change to the Rockford Housing Authority

Admissions and Continued Occupancy Policy

Each year the Rockford Housing Authority is required by HUD to review our Utility Allowance Schedule to ensure it accurately reflects current average utility costs charged to our residents.

The Rockford Housing Authority, based upon recommendations from Johnson Controls as a result of a utility study, has revised the Utility Allowance Schedule for approval by the Rockford Housing Authority Board of Commissioners. Public notice and comment period 10/11/21 – 11/10/2021.
