Resident Advisory Board


The Resident Advisory Board (RAB) provides the PHA and the residents with a forum for sharing information about the Agency’s Annual Plan.  RAB membership is comprised of individuals who reflect and represent the residents assisted by the PHA.  The role of the RAB is to assist the PHA in developing the PHA Plan and in making any significant amendment or modification to the Plan. PHA’s are required to institute at least one RAB; the number of RAB’s beyond that number will depend on the size and the complexity of the PHA or its developments. In deciding the number of RAB’s to be established, a PHA should consider how adequate representation of its entire resident population can be provided. The main role of the RAB is to make recommendations in the development of the PHA Plan.
