PIH launched the portal in 2017 focused on moving Operating Fund forms and submission from paper and Excel workbooks to entirely web-based submissions. Since then, the portal grew to include public housing programs including energy and water conservation programs, PHA plans, Capital Fund, and Waiting lists. The Portal includes modules for the following:
PHA users, including fee accountants or other service providers, and PHA Board Chairs can request access and the appropriate role from the PHA’s Web Access Security Subsystem (WASS) coordinator. The WASS role assignment user guide provides further instructions on how to provide access and complete role assignments (see link below).
All users are required to complete a User Profile and validate their email address before using the Public Housing Portal. Users need only complete their User Profile at one time. The User Profile User Guide (see link below) provides further instructions on how to complete a User Profile:
