Family living in public housing makes half a million a year, and HUD's OK with that


... In the New York case, the New York Housing Authority told the inspector general that it didn't evict the family earning $497,911 from its three-bedroom unit "because its policy does not require it to terminate the tenancy or evict families solely because they are overincome. The Authority believes that allowing overincome families to reside in public housing is beneficial because it shows that participation in the public housing program can help families achieve a more stable life and the average rent paid by overincome families is greater than that paid by other low income families." ...

When you say you don't understand the reasoning behind this, are you referring to the tenants, or HUD's failure to evict overincome tenants, or both?

Maybe I don't understand HUD. I thought HUD was based on a precentage of your income. If they are banking like that are they being charged based on their income? I wouldn't say put them out but I would think they would be paying a healthy rent if it's based off their income. Maybe that is not how HUD works but I thought that is how it worked.

I see.

They are paying a higher rate. I could only post a snippet of the link, if you click this:

... It gives more details and graphs.

But I did underscore this portion below in red in the post, which explains HUD's dilemma:

"because its policy does not require it to terminate the tenancy or evict families solely because they are overincome.

It's been a good while, but this place has always been home. Thankful to be here.
Hi! I'm not as active on this account as I want to be. For one I tend to forget that this site exists until I check my email. Two, I'm currently in the process of building up a fine art site for Oklahoma black and native historical references. The references correlate with another site that will be a storytelling site that has not yet been produced.
Happy to be back and gaining more knowledge!
