GAO reviewed the Department of Housing and Urban Development's (HUD) Gun Buyback Violence Reduction Initiative, focusing on whether HUD: (1) may use funds appropriated for the Public Housing Drug Elimination Grants Program (PHDEG) for gun buyback programs; and (2) has used PHDEG funds for that purpose. GAO noted that HUD would need additional authority to use appropriated funds to support the gun buyback program. In addition, HUD nor GAO has identified any other HUD appropriation that would be available to pay for the gun buyback program.
