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.
NEW VIDEO – "Fair Housing and Disability: Reasonable Accommodations"
This six-minute video was designed to inform housing providers of their rights and responsibilities under state and federal fair housing laws. Disability is one of the most frequently cited basis of housing discrimination complaints. Problems can arise when rental property owners/resident managers do not understand their obligation to make changes in rules and policies in order to provide reasonable accommodation to persons with disabilities.
