The NYU Furman Center and Abt Associates invite applications from interested cities or counties for the first-ever Local Housing Solutions Institute, “a five-day working retreat to help cities and counties refine and strengthen their housing strategies to better meet their affordability and other housing challenges.” The Institute is funded by a grant from the Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation.
As part of a Congressional request to review the federal government’s response to the 2017 hurricanes, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) recently released a performance audit report on Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) funds that were awarded to Texas, Florida, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico.
In March, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) released a report on improvements for HUD’s physical inspection process. The report followed a provision in the 2017 Consolidated Appropriations Act that instructed the GAO to report on the Real Estate Assessment Center’s (REAC) methods for identifying property deficiencies, selecting and training inspectors, and their oversight of these processes.
