Public Housing Management Certification


PURPOSE: Public Housing Management (PHM) provides an overview of the HUD regulations and requirements needed to manage and improve your public housing program and each of your projects. You will learn to effectively manage your project’s budget by understanding the budget’s key components, fees paid by your project, the collection of receivables, and vacancy reduction. In addition, PHM teaches you best practices in nondiscrimination, enforcement of the lease and community service, and supervising techniques. You will also learn to increase your agency’s performance by understanding Public Housing Assessment System (PHAS) performance measures and how to assess them, while gaining the additional skills, responsibility, and accountability you need under HUD’s new asset management model.
