HOUSING AUTHORITY EARNS HIGH PERFORMER STATUS
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) designated the County’s Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) as a “High Performer” for the last 12-month rating period. Serving as the County's Housing Authority, HCD was recognized for its efficient management of the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program.
High Performer is HUD's highest possible designation, which HCD has earned for 13 consecutive years. The ratings are based on 14 key performance indicators, such as the voucher utilization rate and quality control results. This rating demonstrates that HCD is administering the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program at a consistently high level in accordance with HUD’s standards. The designation also provides HCD with the potential for additional funding opportunities.
