PCHA earns another high performing score from HUD!

September 27, 2010

Being scored a “High Performer” through HUD’s Real Estate Assessment Center, or REAC, is no easy task, but the PCHA has successfully achieved this status once again.   Receiving a 99 out of a possible 100 points, the housing authority has earned the designation from HUD through a scoring system which fairly measures the performance of a public housing agency (PHA).  Debbie Johnson, PCHA’s executive director said “I’m very proud of PCHA’s outstanding staff.  They work diligently throughout the year to assure that we achieve excellent performance in each indicator.”

The Public Housing Assessment System (PHAS) electronically collects individual subsystem scores, based on four major indicators such as physical inspection, financial condition, management operations, and resident satisfaction and service.  Once the system collects the scores, it produces a composite PHAS score that represents a PHA’s management performance.  PHAS scores are compiled and issued on a yearly basis.

PCHA also holds a “High Performer” designation through HUD’s Section 8 Management Assessment Program (SEMAP).
