A follow-up review was done of progress by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in correcting deficiencies in determining tenants' income for subsidized rentals as required under the rental assistance housing program.

In spite of HUD plans in response to previous reports over 3 years ago, little corrective action has been taken. The review covered three HUD area offices but was considered representative. HUD program requirements for income recertification and computation of rents were not met or were late. Weaknesses still exist in income recertification procedures and monitoring. A need exists for HUD to make on site reviews of housing projects, to emphasize compliance to project owners, and implement programs and explore further courses of action to make necessary on site reviews and ensure compliance.
