As the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development goes through changes with a new presidential administration in place, one local housing and development continues to churn out successful results.
The Elizabethton Housing and Development Agency (EHDA) learned Tuesday, March 14, they received a perfect overall score of 100 for their 2016 Public Housing Assessment System (PHAS) score and is designated as a “high performer.”
According to information provided to the Elizabethton Star, PHAS is the comprehensive management tool utilized by the Department of Housing and Urban Development to effectively and fairly measure public housing agencies’ performance on an annual basis. PHAS is based on four indicators: physical condition (40 possible points), financial condition (25 possible points), management operations (25 possible points), and capital fund (10 possible points).
“The score is a reflection of the hard work and dedication exhibited by the employees on a daily basis,” EHDA Executive Director Kelly Geagley said Wednesday. “A perfect score is very difficult to achieve and a well-deserved and fitting reward for their performance.”
The EHDA received a score of 40 on Indicator 1, Physical Condition, 25 on Indicator 2, Financial Condition, 25 on Indicator 3, Management Operations, and 10 on Indicator 4, Capital Fund, for the total score of 100.
2017 has been a busy year so far for local public housing and development agencies, along with work at the Department of Housing and Urban Development.
Dr. Ben. Carson, after receiving confirmation from Congress, was sworn in as the 17th secretary of the department on Thursday, March 2.
