Updating Your PHA’s Admissions and Continued Occupancy Policy Webinar Series – Webinar 1


February 16, 2022 | 1:30 PM - 3:30 PM EST



This webinar introduced public housing agencies (PHAs) to five chapters from the updated Public Housing Occupancy Guidebook (PHOG). The webinar focused on five topics:

  • Lease Requirements
  • Community Service and Self-Sufficiency Requirement (CSSR)
  • Transfers
  • Pet Ownership
  • Grievance Procedures

During the webinar, participants learned best practices and sample approaches that they can use to formulate their internal policies and update their Admissions and Continued Occupancy Policy (ACOP). The webinar also reviewed additional resources and materials that are available on the HUD Exchange, including the ACOP Development Guide and short, topical policy fact sheets.

This is the first of three webinars in a series with tips on how to develop, revise, and implement your agency's ACOP in accordance with current HUD requirements. View all webinars in the Updating Your PHA's Admissions and Continued Occupancy Policy Series.
