HCV Program is "High Performer"

DHA's Housing Choice Voucher program has received its confirmation from the Department of Housing & Urban Development that under the Section Eight Management Assessment Program ("SEMAP"), the agency's program received a 92% score, rating it "high performing."

Last September, DHA opened its HCV waiting list and accepted all applications online for the first time. This allowed the agency to process the applications much faster than it has in the past and was vital to restoring the program to its "high performing" status. Subsequently, the agency has welcomed its new HCV Director, Denita Johnson.

SEMAP measures the performance of the public housing agencies (PHAs) that administer the housing choice voucher program in 14 key areas. More information on the assessment is available on HUD's website.
