LHA Receives PHAStastic Score!


The Lowell Housing Authority has received “High Performer Status” for the Public Housing Assessment System (PHAS). The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) utilizes these assessment tools to monitor the agency’s performance and program compliance across several indicators.  This includes an evaluation of the physical conditions of the properties, and financial and executive management practices.

This year’s PHAS score was 90/100. Noteworthy in this year’s report is a 3-point increase in the agency’s financial management score and a  1.3 % increase in the occupancy rate from last year. These scores are a testament to the concerted efforts of the LHA’s executive and property management teams.

Congratulations to Adam Garvey, Chief Financial Officer, Sam Talbot, UPCS Inspector, Brian Moriarty, Director of Maintenance, Tha Chhan, Director of Leased Housing programs, and all the staff who ensure our properties are well-maintained and our resources are utilized to provide the greatest benefit for our residents.

Achieving high-performer status provides the agency with additional grant opportunities, as well as increased capital funds for the agency. The agency looks forward to improving upon this year’s score and embracing the challenges of the new year.  Click here to view the full report.
