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, Brown County Housing Authority scored an average of 88 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 68 in 2007. The average SEMAP Score for Housing Authorities in Wisconsin is 78.82.
