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, Mansfield Housing Authority scored an average of 92 points as of the last set of publicly available data. The housing authority had a high score of 100 in 2002 and a low score of 76 in 2001. The average SEMAP Score for Housing Authorities in Connecticut is 74.43.
