The Brunswick Housing Authority has made changes to the ACOP for Public Housing and the Admin Plan for Section 8. These changes are available upon request. The changes for the ACOP and Admin Plan will be presented for approval at the November Board Meeting
Due to the appropriations lapse there is a possibility that future payments to landlords may be delayed for the remainder of the government shut-down.
We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience that will be caused if we have to delay payments. We are funded by HUD on a monthly basis, and do not have program reserve funds to cover any lapse in funding.
There is a strong possibility that we will receive our HAP funds from HUD even if the government is still shutdown. We do not have confirmation on this, at this time, and we felt it was imperative that we communicate with our landlords and give you as much advance notice as possible if we find we are going to have to delay HAP payments to our landlords.
We will update our website and landlord portal as we receive information. Please refer to these two resources to stay up to date on information concerning the Section 8 program.
We want to thank you in advance for your understanding as we all try to make it through this difficult time.

The Brunswick Housing Authority is accepting applications for its Section 8 Family Self Sufficiency (FSS) waiting list.
The FSS program allows participants to have increases in rent deposited into an Escrow Account that the BHA maintains for the 5 year FSS contract. As a household’s rent increases, client payments are still made to the landlord by the client, however, the BHA credits that difference to the household’s Escrow Account. As the family meets its goals during the 5 year contract, the balance continues to grow and upon graduation, the family is given the amount in its account. In order for a family to successfully graduate, the household must have met its goals and cannot be receiving TANF or any other welfare payments at the end of the 5 year contract.
If the family is terminated from the S8 program or the FSS program and does not graduate, the BHA absorbs any funds in that household’s Escrow Account.
To be eligible for this program you must be an active S8 participant whose household is willing to commit to seeking and maintaining employment and other betterments such as advanced education, obtaining transportation, etc.
If you are interested in participating in this program please fill out the attached questionnaire and return it to your Case Worker.
