Section 8 HCV Waiting List Status: Closed

The Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher waiting list for the Dupage County Housing Authority is currently closed.  It was last opened in 2010.

According to the housing authority's draft 2015 5 Year Plan, In February of 2014 the housing authority purged its waiting list and updated all applications. The number of applicant households on the general HCV wait list decreased but not to the point the wait list needed to be opened to new applications.

To ensure that applicants had every opportunity to respond to the mailing, DHA contacted local shelters and social services providers to notify them of the process so they could communicate with potential waiting list applicants.

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, Dupage Housing Authority scored an average of 73 points as of the last set of publicly available data. The housing authority had a high score of 100 in 2009 and a low score of 0 in 2002. The average SEMAP Score for Housing Authorities in Illinois is 74.76.

Dupage Housing Authority has an average score that is less than the average Illinois housing authority. Higher SEMAP scores indicate more effective financial management, a smoother waiting list process and higher quality physical conditions at assisted properties.
