COVID-19 | Advocate | Breaking News JOIN
PHADA has consistently advocated that HUD provide greater flexibility to HAs, particularly in the context of COVID-19, so that agencies are best able to respond to local conditions during the ongoing pandemic. The association has also argued it is unfair to score many agencies for things beyond their control during this time.
In response to PHADA’s advocacy, impacted HAs have opportunities to request flexibility – possible PHAS scoring waivers or an inspection deferment. In addition, HAs can request SEMAP scoring waivers. Please see the links below on how to take advantage of these options.
