SEMAP Performance What are SEMAP Scores?

Each year HUD reviews and scores the housing authority’s Section 8 program management based on 14 different criteria. 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 Roseville scored an average of 96 points as of the last set of publicly available data. The housing authority had a high score of 103 in 2007 and a low score of 78 in 2001. The average SEMAP Score for Housing Authorities in California is 75.30.

City of Roseville has an average score that is more than the average California housing authority. Higher SEMAP scores indicate more effective financial management, a smoother waiting list process and higher quality physical conditions at assisted properties.
