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, Fairport Urban Renewal Agency scored an average of 100 points as of the last set of publicly available data. The housing authority had a high score of 104 in 2004 and a low score of 93 in 2001. The average SEMAP Score for Housing Authorities in New York is 76.39.

These plans establish each housing authority’s policies, strategies, programs and operations for meeting the housing needs of persons within their target area.
