HUD Looks Into Durham Housing Authority

Posted August 27, 2004

— Accusations of financial mismanagement means the Durham Housing Authority will soon be operating under a microscope.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has ordered the troubled agency to hire an outside consultant to oversee day-to-day operations.

The move came after an audit found the Durham agency had improperly handled more than $5 million in federal funds.

HUD officials will now approve all contracts and hiring decisions. They hope to have the Durham agency back on the right track within a year.
