To fulfill our mission, the PHA must preserve its aging housing stock through timely maintenance and modernization of its developments. The work is part of the PHA’s Capital Plan and is funded by the federal Housing and Urban Development (HUD) capital grants.

Despite a drop in federal funding, the PHA continues to spend its money wisely and in the best interests of residents. Major upgrades are needed regularly to ensure that heating, plumbing, and other systems continue to function properly, especially since PHA buildings are aging structures. Ongoing renovations to both the interior and exterior of PHA buildings and apartments are needed to keep them structurally sound and in a state of good repair.
