|HUD’s Oversight of Multifamily Housing Properties with Failing REAC Scores or EH&S Deficiencies
|Ensuring Assisted Housing is Habitable and Hazard-Free
HUD OIG is auditing HUD’s oversight of multifamily housing properties with failing REAC scores or EH&S deficiencies. There has been recent media attention and Congressional and public concern about the conditions of multifamily housing properties, in particular the health and safety of the individuals that reside in Federally subsidized and/or insured housing. The objective of the audit is to determine whether HUD has effective oversight of multifamily housing properties to ensure that the properties are brought to decent, safe, and sanitary condition in a timely manner. Specifically, we want to assess whether HUD has adequate oversight for (1) multifamily properties that failed the most recent Real Estate Assessment Center (REAC) inspection and (2) multifamily properties with exigent health and safety (EH&S) deficiencies.
