A Guide to Management Reviews of Public Housing Agencies
The following Guide to Management Reviews of Public Housing Agencies has been prepared with the objective of providing PHAs with the information necessary to conduct a comprehensive management review The Guide is not intended to address all of the statutory and regulatory requirements affecting the operation of a PHA. In particular, the Guide does not address the obligations of a PHA to administer its programs in a nondiscriminatory fashion. Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 imposes on HUD and PHAs obligations to administer their programs in compliance with Title VI. Secretary Pierce has stressed the importance of meeting this statutory requirement by issuing a number of statements and notices establishing a Department cross-cutting objective, and Handbook modifications to provide guidance on how to proceed, to clarify and reemphasize the high priority placed on the elimination of violations of Title VI which result in racially identifiable housing projects which were established by official action of the PHA. Tenant selection and assignment procedures in particular have been the focus of increased attention as well as differences in maintenance and conditions of buildings related to race.
