Board of Commissioners
The Housing Authority of Maricopa County (HAMC) is governed by a Board of Commissioners (BOC). Each member of the elected Maricopa County Board of Supervisors appoints one member to the BOC, and the BOC appoints at least one but not more than two eligible resident commission members (“Resident Commissioners”) who must be: A.) in good standing, and B.) either a Housing Authority housing resident (Category 1) or a Housing Authority Rental Assistance recipient (Category 2). A vacancy on the BOC of a Supervisor-appointed Commissioner shall be filled with a replacement appointed by the Supervisor of the district who initially made the appointment and approved by the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors.
The BOC is responsible for HAMC policy and provides general oversight and administrative direction for the organization. In addition, the BOC provides for the ongoing management of the HAMC through the office of the Housing Authority Executive Director.
The BOC typically meets on the fourth Wednesday of every month at the HAMC Administrative building, located at 8910 N. 78th Avenue, Peoria, AZ 85345, or telephonically. Meeting notices for the BOC meetings are posted at the HAMC administrative building which is open to the public from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, except legal holidays, and on the HAMC website at maricopahousing.org. Such notice(s) will indicate the date, time, and place of meeting(s), and will include an agenda or information on how the public may obtain a copy of such an agenda. Agendas are available at least 24 hours prior to any meeting.
