The Housing Authority of Hopkinsville was honored with the Agency of the Year Award from among those Public Housing Authorities (PHAs) in Kentucky managing 250 or more units. With an annual budget of approximately $2.6 million, this 456-public housing unit and 484-unit Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program PHA has sustained both Public Housing Assessment System (PHAS) and Section 8 Management Assessment System (SEMAP) high performance designations since 2002, averaging a score of 97 between the two assessments. Their annual risk assessment ranking is among the lowest for large PHAs based on continuous improvements to program implementation and financial and physical soundness. In addition to its role as landlord for 940 households, the PHA has historically augmented its programs with numerous and varied opportunities for their families to become self-sufficient. This PHA also recently expanded their mission to include the development and management of 48 units of federally assisted elderly housing. Congratulations to the Housing Authority of Hopkinsville!
