NEW: Providence Housing Authority Named a “High Performer”
Thursday, January 24, 2013
The PHAS system measures performance and attempts to define acceptable public housing standards for some of the key areas of public housing management.
The system focuses on four categories: physical condition, financial condition, management operations and capital funds and in three out of the four categories, Providence achieved a perfect score.
The PHS tallied 32 of 40 possible points for its physical condition and got a perfect 25 out of 25 for both its financial condition, which was the first perfect rating in this category, and in its management operations.
Providence also scored a perfect 10 out of 10 in the category of capital funds.
“Overall, the PHA is pleased with its high performer ranking and looks forward to continuing its ascension of the PHAS rating scale,” the organization said in a press release issued today. “The PHA will continue to monitor its own progress on achieving its goals and objectives using an internal Goals Management Plan that was created for the PHA’s most recent strategic plan.”
PHS Interim Executive Director Paul J. Taveras was pleased with his organization’s efforts.
“This score and designation as a high performing housing agency is a tribute to the dedication and hard work of the PHA community which consists of the PHA staff, Board of Commissioners and active residents,” he said. “The score demonstrates that working together for a common good can produce very positive results.”
