The Denver HUD office takes complaints of housing discrimination - then they "shelf" them forever thus frustrating justice
When will the mandatory percentages of accessible housing be raised to match the levels of disabled people? Actually, here's a better question, wouldn't it make sense to require HUD housing to be 100% accessible so that people with disabilities have the same ability to find housing assistance as those without housing?
Cc: Maynor, Stephen R ; [email protected] ; [email protected] ; [email protected] ; [email protected] ; [email protected] ; [email protected] ; [email protected] Subject: Re: Mobility Voucher Choice Program Greensboro Housing Authority I sent a blind email to each of you just about one month ago, and not one of you had the courtesy to respond to this issue. Recently, I was honored to be tasked with identifying service issues for a large federal agency within its own agency. This agency interacts with other federal as well as state agencies. I widened my research to include those government and municipal agencies (Housing and Urban Development included), within North Carolina and became quite offended at your blatant and apathetic disregard for your civic responsibilities While Mr. Fischer's coauthored article, Housing Vouchers Strengthen Other Recovery Agenda Investments | Center on Budget and Policy Priorities (cbpp.org)9-8-2021, presents noble ideas, one must first shed the stagnation which is prevalent among HUD and RAD PHA whose mission has never been focused on public welfare, social justice or addressing disparities within the communities they attempt to govern. I have been on the waiting list since September 2018. I am fortunate to have maintained my confirmation which was emailed to me before the authority mucked up the lists by contracting with insufficient data base managers. I have been given conflicting information from managers and administrators as to why I have not advanced through the waiting list, while I have seen others who recently arrived and have received their voucher, outside of the protocol of the one to two years residency which was promised in 2018. While I am not privy to what goes on behind the scenes at GHA, I am quite confident and adept at researching the Federal Register, the Code of Federal Regulations, as well as GHA's own Administrative Plans, and what they are advising this resident is not regulation or truth. Instead of empowering residents, they have (basically) children as managers who know absolutely nothing but how to disrespect the older people in this building. I have experienced domestic violence from several people in this building, A priority for immediate relocation according to Ms. Gray of the GHA Potability. My tenant rights were violated when I elected to run for Resident Council President They removed my name off the list (against regulations) and placed the same woman who has assaulted me while drunk (twice) I am often told I have no right to receive updates on my rental account when I pay in advance or copies of my recertifications This is not a favor.. it is my right whenever I sign my name to ANYTHING The RAD construction and staff covered the only vent in my apartment to receive extra money while leaving jutting metal on my bathroom floor before they were told cease work. and I am suffocating from the layers of dust from the popcorn ceilings I have never had a working heater in my bedroom. Repairs reported to have been made in 20198-2019 were NOT made. The mask manda​te is not adhered to in the building nor is it enforced One manager said tenant do not have to wear them in their own building. Just plain laziness not to understand the responsibilities of your position COVID-19 Enforcement Board of Health Rule | Guilford County, NC (guilfordcountync.gov) Section IV I don't know about others, but I have a lot to live for. I have just started my for-profit home-based business, and, to my delight. my 501c4 non-profit women's empowerment initiative is progressing. "The times when black women have been successful in confronting and overcoming the structural and institutional sexism and racism that persists in our society have been when we are thoughtful and strategic about speaking up. It's when we've done what it takes to introduce and implement our ideas and our plans to make things better.-Marcia Fudge Above all this, I can no longer accept the fact that while we as Black women have developed power in our intersectionality, we have those Black women Like Nelson and Brown, and Gray and Daye who insist on pressing their foot on our necks instead of lifting as THEY climb. Well, this has been a bit long, but I will return again and again. "I'm no longer accepting the things I cannot change. I'm changing the things I cannot accept." -Angela Davis Peace and Respect Please issue me my voucher as promised when I signed the new lease.

Seeking a mortgage company who can look past and entry on a spreadsheet. I made $42,133.39 in 2020 and took $8,000 in deductions and he says I am hiding income from the IRS which is a lie and won't give me a mortgage. The other mortgage company (monopoly by the state of Florida) says that I cannot get a mortgage if you are self-employed you have to go get a regular job. Fico score model 8: my scores are in the upper 600's and the new model 9 is in the lower 700's. I can do 3.5% down all my credit cards are paid off. I work 7 days a week But yet people on welfare are somehow with no job, no money is able to get a mortgage. So tell me what am I doing wrong?
I rent an Independent Senior Living Apartment in Wisconsin for moderately low income seniors age 55 and older. The papers I signed for my lease and paperwork to process my application are from HUD. I have two questions. If maintenance wants to come in to check something in our apartment, do they have to give us notice or can they knock and let themselves in if nobody answers? Also, the washers/dryers on my floor are staining my clothes with rust. I have complained more than once including this evening. My clothes, sheets and towels are getting ruined. If HUD can’t help me with my questions, who should I take these complaints to? - Thank you.
