Add comment on:Possible fraud may be occurring at the Berkeley Housing Authority?
According to public records, on March 19, 2014, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has given the Berkeley Housing Authority $112,334 in capital funds to repair and improve their public housing units. As noble of a cause as that may sound, it should be noted that on March 13, 2014, the Berkeley Housing Authority announced that it has sold and transfered all of it's public housing units to the Related Companies on February 14, 2014. Now that Berkeley's public housing units have been privatized and sold to some out-of-state billionaires what is the $112,334 from HUD really going to be used for?
