Court slams agency for revoking jailed man's housing

Waiting list for vouchers in 'tens of thousands'

(Continued)

Section 8 vouchers are federally funded subsidies for low-income tenants. A formula is used to determine how much rent a tenant can afford based on income and family size, and then, the balance of what would be considered a “market rate” rent is paid for with funds from the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development.

The judge’s decision also blasted the BHA for appealing the Housing Court ruling, suggesting that given the agency’s actions in the case, they should have let the lower court’s ruling stand.

Brown called the appeal “a confounding decision in light of the serious procedural unfairness apparent on this record.”
