HUD Scores Fairfax County Housing Authority as a High Performing Agency
Nov. 13, 2012
The Fairfax County Redevelopment and Housing Authority (FCRHA) is again ranked among the best of the nation’s more than 3,000 housing authorities, according to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
On Nov. 7, HUD released the FCRHA’s scores for the Public Housing Assessment System (PHAS) for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2012, which found that the FCRHA is a “High Performer” in the management of its 1,060 federal Public Housing units. The FCRHA received a PHAS score of 94 out of a possible 100, including a perfect score for financial management. The assessment looks at the physical condition of the properties, the financial management of the program, management operations and resident satisfaction.
“We are very proud of this achievement, and are committed to maintaining this high standard for residents of the FCRHA’s housing,” said FCRHA Chair Elisabeth Lardner (Mount Vernon District).
This outstanding assessment by HUD for the Public Housing program comes on the heels of the FCRHA’s perfect FY 2012 score by HUD for the Housing Choice Voucher program, which was announced in mid-October.
