A report was recently released by HUD alleging that CMHA has been discriminating against African Americans as it deals with their tenants. The yearly budget is about 100million dollars, tax dollars and it look as if the money is being misused.
Read the report here.
A word from HQS- Housing Quality Standards (HQS) are minimum property standards that have been approved by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. CMHA is required to enforce these federal property standards to ensure that all Section 8 assisted properties are decent, safe, and sanitary.
CMHA applies these property standards in a fair and consistent manner. CMHA’s ultimate priority is that all Section 8 participants are entitled to decent and safe housing. Enforcing HQS regulations for Section 8 assisted properties is a serious business.
Landlords and their Section 8 residents have dual responsibilities for complying with HQS regulations. CMHA Section 8 staff are committed to work with landlords and Section 8 residents to ensure that all Section 8 assisted properties meet Housing Quality Standards.
