On February 6, 2003 (68 FR 6262), HUD issued a proposed rule that would amend the Public Housing Assessment System (PHAS) regulations, codified at 24 CFR part 902, to provide additional information on PHAS procedures, revise certain procedures, and establish new procedures for the assessment of the physical condition, financial condition, management operations, and resident services and satisfaction with services provided to public housing residents. HUD intended to publish proposed revised grading notices at the time that it published the PHAS proposed rule. These notices will be published soon. In order to allow the public housing agencies (PHAs) and the public the benefit of reviewing the grading notices in relation to the PHAS proposed rule, HUD is extending the public comment period for an additional 60 days to coincide with the public comment period for the grading notices. The public comment due date for the February 6, 2003, PHAS proposed rule is extended to June 8, 2003.Start Signature
