Cumberland Housing Authority receives High Performer designation

CUMBERLAND – The Department of Housing and Urban Development has informed the Cumberland Housing Authority that it has been designated as a high performer on the Public Housing Assessment System and the Section 8 Management Assessment Program for fiscal year ending 2019.

These reviews and audits are conducted annually by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. 

HUD’s PHAS and SEMAP rating systems measure performance and define acceptable public housing standards for key areas of public housing and Section 8 management. The PHAS rating system is based on four major indicators: physical condition, financial condition, management operations and capital funds. The SEMAP rating system examines 14 key indicators of CHA’s performance that include unit and quality control inspections, accurate verifications and calculations of income, tenant’s rent, housing assistance payments and utility costs.
