The PHA Plan is a comprehensive guide to public housing agency (PHA) policies, programs, operations, and strategies for meeting local housing needs and goals. There are two parts to the PHA Plan: the 5-Year Plan, which each PHA submits to HUD once every 5th PHA fiscal year, and the Annual Plan, which is submitted to HUD every year by non-qualified agencies.

• A Five-Year Plan that describes the mission of the PHA, its long term goals, and quantifiable objectives for achieving the mission,

• An Annual Plan that provides details about the PHA’s participants, programs and services, and its strategy for addressing operational concerns, residents’ needs, programs, and services for the upcoming fiscal year.
