The Fairfax County Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) has been awarded a better than perfect score in the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Section 8 Management Assessment Program (SEMAP).  HCD scored 148 points out of a possible 145 points—gaining bonus points for the agency’s performance.  This 102% rating designates HCD as a high performer under the SEMAP system for FY 2010.
