In accordance with a Voluntary Compliance Agreement (VCA) between Delaware County Housing Authority (DCHA) and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity (FHEO) office, DCHA in 2019, amended its Admission and Continued Occupancy Policy and Housing Choice Voucher Administrative Plan by deleting the words “excluding the City of Chester” and “outside the City of Chester” from the local preference sections.
In May of 2020, it came to DCHA’s attention that our on-line application language and selection letters still included “excluding the City of Chester”. The on-line application and letters were immediately updated. Nether the language in the application nor the letter adversely affected any applicant.
As a reminder, all applicants are required to update their application yearly in order to remain active on DCHA waiting lists.
A link to the full copy of the VCA is available on DCHA’s website at www.dcha1.org.
