Oct. 18, 2012
- FY 2012 scores for the Section 8 Management Assessment Program (SEMAP) found FCRHA to be a "High Performer."
- The FCRHA received a perfect score of 100 percent for Housing Choice Voucher Program
The Fairfax County Redevelopment and Housing Authority (FCRHA) is again ranked among the best of the nation’s more than 3,000 housing authorities, according to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
HUD has issued the FCRHA’s FY 2012 scores for the Section 8 Management Assessment Program (SEMAP), which found that the FCRHA is a “High Performer” in the management of its more than 3,500 federal Housing Choice Vouchers. The FCRHA received a perfect SEMAP score of 100 percent. The assessment evaluates a housing authority’s management of the Housing Choice Voucher program from a variety of perspectives, including the timeliness of participant re-certifications, housing inspections and enforcement of housing quality standards, among others. The Housing Choice Voucher program provides rental subsidies for participating low-income families to rent homes on the private market.
“This is an important affirmation by HUD of the FCRHA’s standing as one of the country’s finest housing authorities. We are proud of our housing programs, and are committed to maintaining this high standard,” said FCRHA Chair Elisabeth Lardner (Mount Vernon District).
The FCRHA’s Housing Choice Voucher program is managed by the staff of the Fairfax County Department of Housing and Community Development.
