MHA National Spotlight Coming Soon
"A Conversation with HUD on Best Practices for Achieving Optimal Occupancy"
The Mobile Housing Authority has been identified as one of the high-performance Public Housing Agencies nationwide that achieved optimal occupancy during the first three-quarters of FY23. As a result, Chief Asset Officer Casey Dickinson and I participated on a one-hour call with the Office of Public Housing Management and Occupancy Division (PHMOD) to highlight the various strategies MHA implemented to achieve and/or exceed HUD’s occupancy goal of 95.5 percent. The discussion titled, “A Conversation with HUD on Best Practices for Achieving Optimal Occupancy,” will be featured in HUD’s national magazine during the second quarter of 2024.
Considering the agency was essentially on life support just 48 months ago, being spotlighted by HUD a second time as an agency on the rise is a miracle indeed. MHA’s ascension is inextricably linked to the staunch support received from the Board of Commissioners, the Birmingham Field Office, and the team of highly skilled professionals it assembled to work alongside its personnel to ensure the agency achieved operational, financial, and compliance excellence despite repositioning its LIPH portfolio.
