It is the mission of the Lincoln Housing Authority in Lincoln, Nebraska, to provide affordable, decent, safe, and sanitary housing to qualifying families.
The United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) set forth Housing Quality Standards (HQS) which all units must meet before assistance can be paid on behalf of a family. HQS establishes the minimum criteria necessary for the health and safety of tenants. LHA ensures owner and tenant compliance to provide and maintain decent, safe, and sanitary housing through HQS housing inspections.
Landlords can help themselves by being prepared for an inspection. This website is an overview as to many of the items that are checked during an inspection. If a unit does not pass an inspection, repairs must be made and another inspection completed in order for the unit to pass.
