It is a privilege and honor to greet each of you on behalf of the Gallatin Housing Authority’s residents, employees and Board of Commissioners, where innovative-planning, creative-thinking, and team-empowerment is transforming a HUD federal subsidy dependent public housing authority into a more aggressive, independent, self-determined and, progressive affordable housing development. Beginning with the Agency’s first Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) rehabilitation project with a new vision, a new direction, and a new purpose have begun with GHA. Our customers can feel and have witness to the start of this transformation. I want to mention our new resident initiatives which are being planned for 2014 and 2015. We are currently pursuing partnerships with local professional social service providers. These service providers are adequately prepared and ready to offer self-sufficiency, financial wellness and job skill training classes. You are welcome to visit our website anytime, and I hope you find the information within it relevant to you or your family needs.
