Changes to Public Housing Assessment System Include Scoring Revisions
HUD is implementing changes to the scoring methodology for the physical inspection of public housing sites. The changes are part of proposed revisions to the Public Housing Assessment System (PHAS).
The PHAS physical condition inspection is intended to ensure that public housing units are decent, safe, sanitary, and in good repair, scored against HUD's Uniform Physical Condition Standards (UPCS). These uniform standards are an important indicator of performance for a public housing site and the housing authority.
