The Local CHAS: A Preliminary Assessment of First Year Submissions


Report Acceptance Date: April 1992 (29 pages)

Posted Date: July 24, 2021

This historic publication was meant to determine how well communities complied with HUD’s interim CHAS requirements, to assess the content of the first CHASes, to identify the level of effort associated with completing the CHASes, and to develop recommendations for the improvement of the regulations. The basic findings of the report are that: (1) virtually all jurisdictions made significant efforts in developing their CHASes despite the short timeframe and lack of current data; (2) a number of jurisdictions provided additional data and information beyond that suggested by HUD; (3) as was hoped, some jurisdictions with similar housing needs, yet different housing stocks and markets, developed distinctly different housing strategies; and (4) the CHAS regulations could be significantly improved.

This report is part of the collection of scanned historical documents available to the public.
