From the Columbus Metropolitan Housing Authority's press release:

Based on the overwhelming popularity of last year’s inaugural “Homecoming” Celebration, the Columbus Metropolitan Housing Authority (CMHA) announced today it is again host the second-annual event that serves federal Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) recipients from Monday, Oct. 16 through Friday, Oct. 20, at its partner’s office at 107 S. High St, 4th Floor.

The Homecoming Celebration offers a series of activities to help expedite the processing of CMHA payments to landlords, as well as expediting housing inspection requests and applications from CMHA residents to move to new units as part of its HCV program.

“The goal of our Homecoming initiative is to welcome our Housing Choice Voucher participants to gather with us to celebrate the continued commitment of CMHA to the community and people,” said CMHA Chief Program Officer Scott Ammarell.

“The number one priority for CMHA is the families and households we serve – we understand the housing market is tight for everyone, and we are committed to making a difference,” Ammarell said. “We acknowledge that the shortages of affordable housing, rising rents, and the increased cost of living have disproportionately impacted those on the low- and fixed-income spectrum. 

“By successfully working together, we can achieve CMHA’s Housing Choice Voucher program mission of empowering our clients to live in the housing they choose, in the neighborhood they choose, and – with our partners – providing them with the services they need,” Ammarell said.
