Page Title

Manchester NH Housing and Redevelopment Authority | Manchester NH Housing and Redevelopment Authority

This webpage doesn't have a defined page title of an appropriate length.

A webpage title, or title tag, is the text that's displayed on the tab of a browser window and as the headline on a search engine result. It acts as the title for the content of the webpage and should preview and clearly define what the webpage is about.

The ideal title tag is between 60 and 80 characters in length and should contain important, quality keywords relevant to the page.

Page Description

This webpage doesn't have a defined page description of an appropriate length.

A webpage description, or meta description tag, is the text that's displayed under the headline on a search engine result. Like the page title, the description should provide a little more information about what the contents of the webpage is about.

The ideal page description is between 160 and 180 characters in length and should contain similar, supportive text to the title tag.

H1 Header

The Manchester Housing and Redevelopment Authority (MHRA) is the largest public housing agency and largest landlord in Northern New England.

This webpage has a defined H1 header and has only 1 on the page.

An H1 header tag is like the main headline for a webpage. Differing from a page title, the header isn't displayed on the browser tab or search engine result, but it's often the first text that a user sees when visiting a webpage, and should clearly introduce the content that it appears before.

Every webpage should have 1 and only 1 H1 header tag per page, and it should include relevant, quality keywords.

HUD is waiving this requirement and as an alternative requirement allowing the PHAs to apply the increased payment standard at any time (e.g., interim reexamination, owner rent increase) after the effective date of the increase in the payment standard amount, provided the increased payment standard is used to calculate the HAP no later than the effective date of the family’s first regular reexamination following the change. Note that if the PHA has delayed the family’s annual recertification under the waiver authority described earlier in this Notice (see PH and HCV-2), the PHA must use the increased payment standard amount to calculate the family’s HAP beginning the date that the family’s first regular examination would have been effective in the absence of the waiver. Alternatively, the PHA may conduct an interim reexamination where the only change is the increased payment standard amount. Regardless of the method used, the participant must receive the increased payment standard no later than the effective date of the family’s first regular reexamination following the increased payment standard.This waiver provides MHRA with the option to increase the payment standard for the family at any time after the effective date of increase, rather than waiting for the next regular re-examination.By adopting this waiver, MHRA will complete interim recertifications for participants that had annual recertifications completed effective January 1, 2022 and February 1, 2022 to raise the payment standard to 120 percent of the FMR.Period of Availability: The waiver period of availability ends on December 31, 2022.HCV-2: SEMAP SCORERegulatory Authority: 24 CFR § 985.105, 985.10Sub-regulatory Guidance: Notice PIH 2021-34Description: HUD shall assess each PHA‘s performance under SEMAP annually and shall assign each PHA a SEMAP score and overall performance rating.This waiver allows MHRA to request to waive the application of SEMAP in its entirety, only if the PHA has a SEMAP indicator affected directly or indirectly because of the disruption to PHA operations caused by its adoption of available CARES Act waivers.By adopting this waiver MHRA will not be required to submit a SEMAP certification and will retain an overall SEMAP score of 96% from the score received for fiscal year ending September 30, 2020.Period of Availability: The waiver period of availability ends on December 31, 2022.HCV-3: Term of Voucher: Extensions of Term.Regulatory Authority: 24 CFR § 982.303(b)(1)Sub-regulatory Guidance: Notice PIH 2021-34Description: When a family is selected from the waiting list or when a participant family wants to move to another unit, MHRA issues a Housing Choice Voucher, form HUD-52646. The initial term of a voucher must be at least sixty (60) calendar days. Extensions are permissible at the discretion of MHRA up to a maximum of an additional sixty (60) days beyond the initial sixty (60) day term. MHRA will extend the term up to one hundred twenty (120) days from the beginning of the initial term if the family needs and requests an extension as a reasonable accommodation to make the program accessible to and usable by a family member with a disability.This waiver allows PHAs to grant a family one or more extensions of the initial voucher term regardless of the policy described in the Administrative Plan.By adopting this waiver, MHRA will provided additional extensions on the term of the vouchers for applicants and participants. All requests for extensions must be received in writing prior to the expiration date of the voucher.

HUD approval is not required to establish a payment standard amount in that range.  HUD is allowing PHAs to request an expedited waiver to allow for establishment of payment standards up to 120 percent of the FMR.This allows MHRA to establish payment standards to 120 percent of the FMR. This does not include any future changes to the FMR.By adopting this waiver, MHRA will increase payments standard to 120 percent of the FMR effective January 1, 2022 for new admissions, port ins, and transferring participants.

Because search engines crawl and index content, and the more content that a webpage has the greater potential for the page to rank for multiple keywords, webpages should contain a good amount of content with more than 500 words being a good benchmark for a regular page, and 1,000 words for blog posts.

The content should be rich with quality, original content - not containing "fluff" just to fill up the space. Having more content will also likely help the page to rank better for search queries as well as rank for more search queries.
