URGENT NOTICE TO SECTION 8 APPLICANTS AND THOSE ON THE SECTION 8 WAITING LIST
The Vancouver Housing Authority (VHA) just learned that its web site has been compromised. Applicants for Section 8 housing allowances were falsely asked to provide a personal credit card number to cover the cost of a credit check of $20.00 per month. This was a fraudulent attempt to secure personal credit card information and is not now and never has been a requirement of the Housing Authority. The web site has been corrected and all appropriate law enforcement and other agencies have been informed of the breach.
None of the personal information for Section 8 or Public Housing applicants or clients on the VHA data servers has been compromised. Only those individuals who followed the false link appearing on the web site and entered credit card information are affected.
If any Section 8 applicant or member of your family has provided credit card information as a result of the fraudulent request, please contact VHA at 360-993-9563. Also, please contact your credit card provider to cancel or protect your card. You are also encouraged to file a complaint with the Washington State Attorney General's office and read their information on identity theft.

RESIDENT VOICES NEEDED!!
Have you ever wondered why the VHA operates the way it does, why it has the rules, regulations and policies it does and wished you could share your ideas about these subjects? Well, now is your opportunity! The Vancouver Housing Authority (VHA) is recruiting residents for the Resident Advisory Board (RAB). The RAB provides the opportunity for residents to present input to the VHA on matters that affect them, including new policies and plans ~after all, who knows better what you need, what you want and what will assist you and your family the most?
The RAB is made up of Public Housing and Section 8 residents. It meets quarterly on the second Monday of the Month (for 2012 the meetings will be February 13; May 14; August 13 and November 12) from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the VHA’s Administrative Offices at 2500 Main Street. Lunch is provided and transportation assistance is available.
We are looking for people who broadly represent the population of the VHA; if you are a Public Housing or Section 8 resident who cares about their housing and wants to make a difference…you are the perfect candidate for the RAB. Contact Syble at 993-9501 or firstname.lastname@example.org to have the application mailed to your home or click the links below to print application materials.
