There are many templates available to PHAs that can assist in writing an Admissions and Continuing Occupancy Policy (ACOP) and an Administrative Plan for their voucher program. However, these templates only meet the letter of HUD’s requirements and don’t reflect the unique characteristics of a PHA and the area it serves.
With US Housing Consultants, our policy creation process is different. We include exploratory discussions and due diligence regarding a PHA’s portfolio, staff, operations, and the wants and needs of residents and HCV participants. In many cases, the ACOP and Admin plan become part of a larger strategic plan to modernize and streamline operations at Public Housing Authorities.
