Goshen In Jeopardy Of Losing Housing Office

Following a recent investigation by federal authorities, Goshen could be in jeopardy of losing its housing authority office. This, after a audit of records stemming from previous mismanagement, the agency has been told to pay more than $1 million in fines and reimbursements to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. It’s money, the housing authority board says they don't have. Members and city officials plan to meet with HUD later this month to talk about the report and ask the department not charge them the fees that could end up closing them down. As of late last year, Goshen’s housing authority office was giving out 270 vouchers each month to families in need, out of about 320 vouchers the office has. Those families would be the ones at risk of losing the assistance if the Goshen office closes.
