HUD audit finds 25,000 ineligible families in public housing

More than 25,000 families received government assistance despite exceeding income thresholds, according to a sweeping audit of the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s public housing program.

Of the 25,226 families, 68 percent or 17,761 receiving public housing assistance had earned more than the qualifying amount for more than a year.

Of that number 13,388 (53 percent) had income that was up to $10,000 more than HUD’s 2014 income limits and 11,838 (47 percent) had income that was more than $10,000 greater than the income limits.

The review found that HUD will pay $104.4 million over the next year for public housing units occupied by over-income families that otherwise could have been used to house low-income families, leaving many who need help stuck on waiting lists.

For example, the New York City Housing Authority said a family in the program since 1988 had exceeded income levels since at least 2009.

As of November 2013, the four-person household’s annual income was $497,911, while the low-income threshold was $67,100.

As of July 2014, the family paid an income-based ceiling rent of $1,574 a month.

The housing authority, did not evict this family from its four-bedroom unit "because its policy does not require it to evict over-income families because HUD regulations don’t require it," the report said.

"The authority claimed that evicting over-income families would work against HUD’s efforts to deconcentrate poverty in public housing developments."

I bet it's more than that.
THERE IS NOT A SINGLE FED OR STATE AGENCY THAT IS NOT INVOLVED IN CORRUPTION . SHUT THEM ALL DOWN AND START OVER WITH MAYBE TWO OR THREE . THIS IS OUTRAGEOUS !

The sad thing is native-born Americans, who've worked all of their lives are ineligible for welfare.

ITS GOT TO STOP.  HOW?   TRUMP!!!!

HUD....they sell the apartments.  the people that buys them, rent them, they paid part to the Hud huncho, the inspectors don't inspect, they contribute to democrat political campaigns.

Well..duh...does this surprise ANYONE here????...and yet they stay there..no evictions..you and I would have been gone long ago....

Wow. Some of these regulations are conveniently written to avoid following their own regulations in the first place. 

Another corrupt agency via the US government.  OMG  does this ever end.  It is disgusting to know that no matter what this government will lie, cheat and steal. 

My question is how many illegals are living in HUD housing?

THAT IS BECAUSE IT IS CONTROLLED BY THE GOVERNMENT! Anything, absolutely anything the federal government controls is bloated and corrupt.

Deep State Treason:  Former State Dept. Official Under Trump Tells China To Quit Negotiating Until Trump Is Removed In 2020

Deep state traitors no longer hide their deep hatred for the American people —

Mrs. Susan Thornton, the former acting assistant secretary of state in the Trump administration, told her Beijing audience to stop negotiating until President Trump is removed from office in 2020.

Until July 2018, she was Acting Assistant Secretary for East Asian and Pacific Affairs at the Department of State and led East Asia policy making amid crises with North Korea, escalating trade tensions with China, and a fast-changing international environment.

The Conservative Treehouse and The South China Morning News reported:

A former official in the Trump administration has said that China can weather the storm brought by the trade war with the United States but might have to “keep steady, keep their heads down and wait” for change in the White House.

Susan Thornton, former acting assistant secretary of state to US President Donald Trump, told a gathering in Shanghai on Wednesday that she hoped a trade deal between the US and China could be concluded by next month.

But the reality was that it would “take a while” for China and the US to talk about cooperation again, Thornton, who in 20 years rose to become the US State Department’s chief negotiator for East Asia and Pacific affairs, told the South China Morning Post.

“I want to be optimistic,” said Thornton, whose 27-year career in Washington ended in July. “I tell all our foreign counterparts they should keep steady, keep their heads down and wait. [They should] try to not let anything change dramatically.”

“If this sceptical attitude towards talking diplomacy continues in this administration, you might have to wait till another administration,” Thornton said at an event held by National Committee of US-China relations and Shanghai’s American Chamber.
