Abstract:

This report discusses the current status of actions taken by the Department of Housing and Urban Development HUD on recommendations we made in a prior report on housing rehabilitation assistance provided under the Community Development Block Grant Program and the Section 312 Rehabilitation Loan Program. We believe the Department needs to develop reliable management data and performance standards for measuring how successful its actions have been. We further believe that the Department can provide a higher quality housing rehabilitation service for the same or even less money and that this could help lessen the impact of any reduction in Federal rehabilitation moneys resulting from the administrations recent proposal to terminate the Section 312 Program and provide housing rehabilitation support from the Community Development Block Grant Program.
