SCPHA Implements Policy Changes Due to COVID-19 State of Emergency Policy Changes and Public Access Restrictions Effective Today, March 16th Boutte, LA (March 16, 2020) – In response to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) state of emergency and to reduce the spread of the virus, the St. Charles Parish Housing Authority (SCPHA) has implemented several emergency policies that will affect Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) and Public Housing program participants. The emergency policy changes are effective immediately and until further notice.

Evictions and Terminations
There has been a change on the SCPHA Board! After assisting SCPHA through a tough period and providing needed expertise in the areas of housing and finance, our Ex-Officio Commissioner Julia Fisher-Perrier stepped down Jan. 9, 2018 to pursue other activities. She is still available to provide expertise in her friendly, but firm manner and remains a valued Councilperson on the St. Charles Parish Council. She was instrumental in providing much appreciated guidance through some of SCPHA’s toughest decisions and will be missed.
In our attempt to keep pace with the changes needed, Commissioner Fisher-Perrier has been replaced by St. Charles Parish Councilperson Marilyn Bellock, District V, as the new Ex-Officio Commissioner on the Board. In the upcoming week, we will present much more about our newest Board Member. We thank her for accepting the changes and look forward to working with her on behalf of the St. Charles citizens.
We wish you the very best in the New Year and, most of all, a safe New Year.
Please take care in the disposal of Christmas trees and the use of additional heat sources. Fires are major threats to our welfare and happiness each season, but we caution even more care in this unusually cold season.
Also, equally important is how we handle fireworks as we celebrate. Although legal in our Parish, we ask that they be used away from structures in open areas and handled in the safest manner possible. Our wellness and the safety of our neighborhoods depend on it.
We hope you have a joyous, peaceful, and successful New Year.
The waiting list for this program is closed now. It is not expected to be open before 2019, and the specific dates will be posted, advertised and placed on the website.
