The Lowell Housing Authority's Section 8 Management Assessment Program (SEMAP) scores are in and the LHA has been designated as a high-performer. SEMAP is designed by HUD to better manage public housing authorities by identifying deficiencies and making recommendations for improvement. HUD rated the Authority across a number of indicators and processes, including rent and calculations, inspections, waiting list selection and the agency's ability to effectively expand housing opportunities in the community. This year's overall score for LHA is a 93%. A special thanks to Tha Chhan, Director of Leased Housing and the Division of Leased Housing team for all their hard work in ensuring the LHA continues to run a successful program.
