David Pohler, Director of the San Antonio Office of Public Housing send kudos to the Executive Director and Board of Commissioners expressing his acknowledgement of the excellent work of the EPHA: “Please congratulate your Board and Staff from me for this high performer score. 97 is an excellent PHAS score - I suspect that less than 15% of PHAs achieve a score this high. You have really strong reserves equivalent to 18 months of expenses. Again, this is really good - higher than vast majority of PHAs".

The overall entity wide PHAS score of 97 is based on a weighted average of the score for each AMP. The EPHA Chairwoman, Ana Gonzalez, would like to congratulate staff and the Board of Commissioners for their dedication to continue serving our residents and striving to enhance the livelihood of hundreds of residents.
