A House in Order: Results From the First National Assessment of HUD Housing
HUD spends $15 billion each year to subsidize 44,000 properties that are home to more than 4 million families. Last year, using state-of-the-art technology and performance indicators, HUD's newly established Real Estate Assessment Center (REAC) began conducting the first complete inspection and assessment of federally subsidized housing. By the end of March 1999, REAC had inspected more than 4,000 multifamily properties and 750 public housing authorities (PHAs).
A new HUD report reviews the results from these initial inspections. A House in Order: Results From the First National Assessment of HUD Housing presents the first comprehensive data on the physical and financial conditions of public housing, along with the results of the first national survey of public housing residents.
