Cumberland Housing Authority rated ‘high performer’ by HUD

CUMBERLAND – The Cumberland Housing Authority has been designated a high performer by the Department of Housing and Urban Development, based on its most recent Public Housing Assessment System score of 96, stated a release from the Cumberland agency.

HUD uses the assessment system to evaluate the overall condition of each housing authority and obtain results that are objective, uniform and verifiable, the release said. The methodology uses four evaluation tools referred to as PHAS indicators: physical condition, financial condition, management operations and its capital fund program.

Each indicator is separately evaluated and scored for an overall available score of 100 points.
