This score is a reflection of how well the housing authority manages the Section 8 waiting list, the physical quality of housing assisted with Section 8 and the financial management of the program.

From 2001 to 2009, City of Anaheim Housing Authority scored an average of 85 points as of the last set of publicly available data. The housing authority had a high score of 95 in 2008 and a low score of 54 in 2006. The average SEMAP Score for Housing Authorities in California is 75.30.
