White Paper

May 6, 2013

A large fraction of the public housing stock has high unmet capital needs. In this paper, Abt Associate’s Meryl Finkel examines the range of funds that Public Housing Authorities and other multifamily property owners currently set aside in their reserves for accrual of capital needs, describes why deposits to public housing replacement reserves typically are substantially lower than in other comparable properties, and explains why PHAs properties should be setting aside more funds up front.
