Public Hearing Notice
Notice is given that the Wilmington Housing Authority (WHA) will conduct a public hearing concerning a proposed Family Re-entry Pilot Program for the Public Housing Program.
Wilmington Housing Authority (WHA) is part of a consortium of five Delaware Public Housing Authorities (PHAs) proposing to administer a statewide Family Reentry Pilot Program (FRP). The goal of the program is to provide individuals recently released from incarceration, or individuals who have been in the community for less than 3 years (either following a period of incarceration, or following the commission of an offense which did not result in incarceration) with the opportunity to reunite with their families living in PHA-assisted housing for a temporary one- to two-year period. During the program, participants must comply with the terms of any applicable community supervision, and will be offered various support services such as help securing employment, continuing their education, and/or obtaining benefits. After participants successfully complete the FRP, they can request to be added to their family’s lease permanently.
A copy of the Draft FRP Pilot Program Addendum will be available for inspection and review at WHA’s offices at 400 North Walnut Street, Wilmington, Delaware during normal business hours, Monday through Friday, and at each Public Housing development beginning March 4, 2020. The FRP Pilot will also be available for review on the WHA website, www.whadelaware.org beginning March 4, 2020 and at the following locations:
- Central & Section 8 Office – 400 North Walnut Street
- Leasing & Scattered Site Offices – 1800 N. Broom Street
- Northeast Office – 1312-1314 East 24th Street
- Southbridge Office – D & Buttonwood Streets
- Compton Towers Office – 325 E. 5th Street
- Herlihy Apartments Office – 320 East 5th Street
- Baynard Apartments Office – 309 West 18th Street

The public hearing will be held on April 20, 2020 at 4:00 P.M. at the Herlihy Apartments Community Room located at 320 E. 5th Street, Wilmington, DE 19801.
The comment period will end on April 16, 2020. Written comments, questions or requests for additional information, including copies of the Plan itself, should be directed to Sandi Rosmini of Wilmington Housing Authority at (302) 429-6701.
