Public Notice and Comment Period on Proposed Public Housing Utility Allowance Revisions
Lucas Metropolitan Housing (LMH) is providing notice that it has completed its annual review of utility allowances and intends to revise its public housing utility allowances. The proposed changes could alter the subsidy applied, which could change the amount of rent a resident pays each month to LMH.
LMH encourages residents to review the proposed utility allowances, which are available on its website, https://bit.ly/3T12LzU, at LMH's Headquarters 424 Jackson Street, Toledo, OH 43604; or at any Property Management Office.

Residents are encouraged to provide written comments to Jennifer Todd-Warfield at [email protected] or at Lucas Metropolitan Housing's Headquarters.
LMH collected information regarding the source of energy for each unit, age of appliances, and building materials. The utility allowances were then calculated by using this data, along with rates charged by the utility companies and standard consumption rates for the region.
Resident comment period ends on October 31, 2023
LMH will review all comments received. LMH will retain all written comments consistent with its record retention policy. If you have a question, contact your property manager.
Requests for relief from surcharges for excess consumption and payment of supplier billings more than the allowances for resident purchased utilities may be granted by LMH on reasonable grounds on a case-by-case basis for the elderly, ill or disabled residents. A request for relief can be made orally or in writing to LMH.
Proposed effective date for revised utility allowances, January 1, 2024.
