The Lackawanna Municipal Housing Authority has again been rated a "high performer" by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
The authority received a 96 percent on its latest Public Housing Management Assessment Program score, up from 93.3 percent last year.
"It's a tribute to the staff and the board of commissioners," Charles Barone Jr., executive director, said Wednesday. "I'm proud of them. It's a good feeling to have an A-rated Housing Authority for the third year in a row."
Barone said it will be tough to improve on the score, "but we will keep trying."
The lowest letter grade it received was a C on resident involvement in resident services and the community building, and Barone said he will try to improve that.
