The Niagara Falls Housing Authority has been designated a "High Performer" after receiving a score of 94 out of 100 points by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's Real Estate Assessment Center. Nationally, housing authorities scoring 90 points or higher on the assessment are designated as "High Performers," which is an indication of excellence in the overall management and operations of a housing authority.
The Niagara Falls Housing Authority was evaluated using four criteria: the physical condition of the public housing properties, financial condition of the agency, management and operations and capital improvements.
"We are proud if this accomplishment," said Stephanie W. Cowart, executive director of Niagara Falls Housing Authority. "This recognition is shared with our residents and entire staff. It takes implementation of a strategic management plan, a team approach and community pride to maintain a quality housing community."
The Public Housing Assessment System measures the performance of housing agencies (PHAs) that administer the public housing program. HUD has put this evaluation system in place to assist in the delivery of services in public housing and enhance trust in the public housing system among public housing agencies, public housing residents, HUD and the general public.
