2. REGULAR BUSINESS

 

a. REPORT/Final Report to the Board on FY 2000 Public Housing Assessment System (PHAS) Results.

 

Don Williams, HACSA, reported that HUD changed how they numerically ranked housing authorities.  He said initially HACSA had a score of 100.  He stated under the new system, it was more difficult to score 100 as HUD hired outside contractors to physically inspect their property.  He added that they inspected over 3,000 data points and if any problem was found, it was marked down.  He said a survey was also sent out to all HACSA residents and the chances of getting 750 residents sampled and returning the survey stating there were no problems, made it improbable of ever scoring 100.  He reported after HUD did its analysis, they received a score of 97.8.  He said the two previous times under this system, the highest they had scored was a 91.4.  He noted a score of 90 or above was outstanding.  He added since they received additional points, they received an additional $300,000 in modernization funds.  He reported that they were the number one housing authority in the nation for those who had over 750 residents.

 

Green thanked the staff for making Lane County number one and turning out such a high quality item.
