Commission Meeting Minutes April 08, 2010 Page 3 for the fiscal year 2009 (the period October 1, 2008 to September 30, 2009). There have been proposed changes to the PHAS to be on an AMP basis but HUD has not finalized the format for FY 2009 so they have reverted back the old agency-wide self-certification approach.

Vacant Unit Turnaround, Capital Fund, Work Orders, Annual Inspection, Security, Economic Self-Sufficiency. Commissioner Jones motioned to approve this Resolution.
