System Information
  • Changes to TAR calculation for FY2022. As outlined in PIH-Notice 2022-2, a development with Tenant Accounts Receivable (TAR) ratio of 80% or more would receive 5 points. To clarify, the ratio of 80% or more is based on the percentage of Tenant Revenue not in Accounts Receivable (received on time), while the TAR amount is the amount of tenant revenue past due to outstanding. Therefore, the actual scoring thresholds, which will be used for only FY 2022 scoring, for the TAR ratio are:

    TAR <= 0.20 5 Points
    0.20 < TAR <= 0.40 2 Points
    TAR > 0.40 0 Points

    Please note that the original thresholds used in assessments prior to FY2022 will resume in FY2023 assessments unless otherwise announced.

  • During the COVID-19 pandemic, HUD provided for a waiver from PHAS (PIH Notice 2021-14) - The waiver period ended December 31, 2021. Beginning with PHAs with a fiscal year-end of March 31, 2022, PHAS Assessments will be completed and released. UPCS inspections have been ordered and are currently being scheduled. Also, be aware of the due dates for financial submissions to avoid late penalty points.

    The document includes the latest released Public Housing Assessment System (PHAS) scores for all Public Housing Agencies (PHAs) where PHAS scores have been issued for those PHAs with fiscal year end (FYE) dates between March 31, 2011 and December 31, 2018. PHAS scores may be published more than once for each FY; for example, the unaudited and audited score. The PHAS scores included in the report are the latest PHAS scores released in that fiscal year (FY). Additionally, there are three years of PHAS scores for each PHA where the PHA has released PHAS scores for that year.

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act Public Law 116-136), signed into law on March 27, 2020, provided HUD with broad authority—in the context of the public health emergency—to waive certain statutes and regulations for the Public Housing program.

The Public Housing Assessment System (PHAS) Interim Rule was published on February 23, 2011 and became effective for PHAs with fiscal years ending March 31, 2011.

  • PHAS Waivers​
    ​A public housing authority (PHAS) seeking a waiver from an indicator of the Public Housing Assessment System (PHAS) interim rule must follow the guidance outlined in PIH Notice 2018-16. This includes requests for an extension of the audited financial data submission score of zero (Late Presumptive Failure).
