Department of Housing and Community Affairs


What the Department Does and for Whom
The Department of Housing and Community Affairs (DHCA) plans and implements activities that prevent and correct problems that contribute to the physical decline of residential and commercial areas, ensure fair and equitable relations between landlords and tenants, increase the supply of affordable housing, and maintain existing housing in a safe and sanitary condition.
Department Performance Measures
Montgomery County departments are broken out into discrete programs for the purposes of Outcome Based Budgeting.
A program is an activity or set of activities performed by County government that has:
  • identifiable costs for budgeting purposes
  • a clear public purpose and measurable results, and
  • clear lines of accountability for its performance and financial management
 
The following are the performance measures for programs within the Department of Housing and Community Affairs. In our performance framework there are three categories of measures:
  • How much did we do? (quantity)
  • How well did we do it? (quality)
  • Is anyone better off? (effect or impact)
