5 Year and Annual Plan
The Public Housing Reform Act requires submission of both a Five-Year and an Annual Plan. The Five-year PHA Plan describes the agency’s mission and the long-term plan for achieving that mission over the subsequent five years. The Annual Plan provides details about the PHA’s current programs and the resident population served, as well as the PHA’s strategy for addressing the housing needs of currently assisted families and the larger community.
The PHA Plan is a comprehensive guide to public housing agency (PHA) policies, programs, operations, and strategies for meeting local housing needs and goals. There are two parts to the PHA Plan: the 5-Year Plan, which each PHA submits to HUD once every 5th PHA fiscal year, and the Annual Plan, which is submitted to HUD every year. AHA’s fiscal year runs July to June.
