HUD has published a new Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Data Dashboard to help housing authorities (HAs) and the public understand certain aspects of the HCV program. It includes vast amounts of data organized at the national, state, and HA level. Data published includes budget authority, HAP reserves, leasing rates, and more.
HUD previewed the Dashboard with PHADA staff in September 2019. This tool promises to garner significant interest not only from those in the industry, but elected officials, advocates, and community members as well. HAs should become familiar with the tool and review it for accuracy. PHADA will provide analysis of the information and suggested uses in the near future.
The Dashboard and supplementary materials can be accessed here.
