***PRESS RELEASE*** SAN FRANCISCO HOUSING AUTHORITY RECEIVES FINAL REPORT CARD FROM HUD SHOWING SIGNIFICANT MAINTENANCE IMPROVEMENTS! For the First Time in Over a Decade, HUD Rates SFHA a “Standard Performer” San Francisco, California: The San Francisco Housing Authority (SFHA) announced today that the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), issued a final report card to the SFHA showing significant improvements in maintenance scores, these scores called Real Estate Assessment Scores, (REAC) given by HUD inspectors, measure all facets of maintenance conditions at public housing sites. Types of conditions evaluated include examples such as roof integrity, boilers systems, plumping systems, and mechanisms that need to work effectively in the event of an emergency. “In 2009 and 2010, the implementation of dramatic efforts to improve Public Housing Assessment System scores, commonly referred to as “PHAS” has resulted in our ratings significantly improving and we plan on continuing the ascent,” said Mr. Henry Alvarez III, Executive Director. “We had long been perceived as a troubled agency because of our low PHAS scores. With this month’s announcement from HUD, we are one step closer to turning the corner on the maintenance challenges that have long hampered our image and people’s faith in our capacity,” said Revered Amos Brown, President of the Board of Commissioners of the San Francisco Housing Authority For more information please visit www.sfha.org ########################################################### ############################################################################## ###################
