REPORT: Maine State Housing Authority ‘mismanaged’ program

A final report from the Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Inspector General finds that the Maine State Housing Authority mismanaged its program and failed to ensure that participants in its Housing Choice Voucher program were living in decent, safe, and sanitary conditions. In its final report to Collins last Tuesday, Oct. 2, HUD IG finds that 53 of 61 units, or 87 percent, of the units it inspected did not meet Maine State Housing’s housing quality standards.

The IG report concludes that Maine State Housing did not have adequate oversight of its contractors or their inspectors and it did not have effective internal quality controls for its own inspectors, according to the press release.
