We audited the Huntsville Housing Authority’s Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher program.  We initiated the audit under the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), Office of Inspector General’s (OIG) annual audit plan.  We selected the Authority as part of a strategic plan with the Assistant United States Attorney in Northern Alabama to evaluate housing authorities in her jurisdiction.  Our audit objective was to determine whether the Authority administered its Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher program in accordance with HUD’s and its own requirements.  Specifically, we reviewed the Authority’s administration of the program, including tenant and unit eligibility and the accuracy of housing assistance payments.

The Authority administered its Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher program in accordance with HUD’s and its own requirements.  It ensured that the tenants and units were eligible, and the housing assistance payments were accurate.
