Welcome to the Missouri Chapter of NAHRO

Greetings Fellow MONAHRO Members!

During the SWNAHRO Annual Conference in Little Rock, Arkansas last month, our Missouri Chapter Executive Board called a special meeting to address the number of conferences/workshops our state hosts each year. The decision was made to reduce our meetings from five conferences/workshops to three each year. The May Workshop has been divided and will be included in the Spring and Fall Conference schedules. The new schedule is as follows:

March - Spring Conference
October - Maintenance Conference/Financial Workshop
September - Fall Conference

Additionally, the SWNAHRO Awards Committee passed a resolution to combine the SWNAHRO Awards Judging Meeting with the Winter Committee Meetings in January. All of these changes take effect January 1, 2019

With those changes, we will be adjusting our own Awards submission and judging process. In order to have our individual state awards judged and forwarded to Southwest, we will need to have them completed this fall. Our State winners will be announced at the Spring Conference in March.

I encourage everyone to take advantage of this opportunity to recognize those in your Agency and within our organization for all of the work they do to make our programs successful and meet the needs in our communities.

Be looking for more information very soon, including Awards Applications and deadline information, from our Vice President of Member Services, Missy Mahurin.

Thank you,
Patti Preston
Senior Vice President
Missouri NAHRO

HUD awards housing vouchers for local homeless veterans

Springfield News-Leader USA TODAY NETWORK

Officials with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs were in Springfield on Monday to present a check to the Housing Authority of the City of Springfield.

The check was for $40,116 and will be used to provide permanent homes to 10 veterans experiencing homelessness.

In total, six public housing authorities in Missouri received $278,000 to house 65 homeless veterans.

The supportive housing assistance announced Monday is provided through the HUD-Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing program, which combines rental assistance from HUD with case management and clinical services provided through the VA.

Katrena Wolfram, executive director of the Housing Authority of Springfield, said she applied for 25 HUD-VASH vouchers. Though only 10 were granted, Wolfram said she intends to continue applying for more.
