    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 present date. 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).


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).
