Public Housing Assessment System (PHAS) w/ Proficiency Test


The Public Housing Assessment System (PHAS) is designed to measure the management performance all public housing authorities (PHAs) nationwide. It took effect October 1, 1998 and the first ratings were issued for 1999. On February 23, 2011 HUD issued a new interim rule which drastically changed the PHAS performance system. This interim rule implements REAC’s new Public Housing Assessment System, including revised physical, financial, and management assessments, and adding a new Capital Fund indicator. In addition to the interim rule, also known as PHAS III, HUD has issued a Notice with guidelines for the implementation of the new interim rule. The rule goes into effect starting with PHAs whose fiscal year ends March 31. This seminar will provide a complete overview of the new rule as well as information on how to make their PHAs compliant and maximize their PHAS score. Faculty will discuss the new rule, highlighting additions and key changes. In addition, they will provide a step-by-step walkthrough of the system using actual PHA data to provide participants with a real-life example of the new assessment. A proficiency test will be held at the end of the training.
