The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), Office of Inspector General audited the Kansas City, Kansas Housing Authority (Authority) to determine whether the Authority violated HUD’s waiting list rules when it offered Section 8 vouchers to applicants for Delaware Highlands Assisted Living. We conducted the audit because of concerns raised during a previous audit of the Authority, in which we saw indications that the Authority may have inappropriately directed housing vouchers to the assisted living facility.
The Authority did not violate HUD’s waiting list rules when it issued Section 8 housing vouchers to Delaware Highlands Assisted Living tenants. The Authority appropriately determined the eligibility of the tenants when they applied for vouchers. It also correctly placed the applicants on the Authority’s voucher waiting list and selected the applicants from the list. This report contains no formal recommendations, and no further action is necessary.
