BREAKING: HUD OIG in partnership with the DOJ and #USAO_NJ obtains landmark $4.5 million settlement in ongoing efforts to combat sexual harassment in housing.

NJ landlord, Joseph Centanni violated the Fair Housing Act by demanding sexual acts under the threat of eviction or refusing to rent to victims who refused his abhorrent sexual advances.

HUD IG Rae Oliver Davis said, “No one deserves to be victimized and preyed upon in their own home. HUD OIG is committed to investigating with our law enforcement partners to pursue predatory landlords and hold them accountable for this egregious behavior."

In February 2021, the Office of the Chief Information Officer identified funding risks with the development contract under which #HUD contracted for FHA Catalyst’s development.

In response, HUD officials took steps to slow FHA Catalyst spending on the contract while awaiting approval for additional contract funds.

Despite efforts to slow project spending, it was not enough to prevent funding shortfalls before the contract’s base year end.

General information

ABOUT HUD, OFFICE OF INSPECTOR GENERAL The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Inspector General is one of the original 12 Inspectors General authorized under the Inspector General Act of 1978. Over the years, we have forged a strong alliance with HUD personnel in recommending ways to improve departmental operations and in prosecuting program abuses. We strive to make a difference in HUD's performance and accountability. We are committed to our statutory mission of detecting and preventing fraud, waste, and abuse and promoting the effectiveness and efficiency of government operations. While organizationally we are located within the Department, we operate independently with separate budgetary authority. This independence allows for clear and objective reporting to the Secretary and the Congress. Our activities seek to: Promote efficiency and effectiveness in programs and operations; Detect and deter fraud and abuse; Investigate allegations of misconduct by HUD employees; and Review and make recommendations regarding existing and proposed legislation and regulations affecting HUD. The Executive Office and the Offices of Audit, Investigation, Counsel, and Management and Technology are located in Headquarters. Also, the Offices of Audit and Investigation have staff located in eight regions and numerous field offices.
