HPD Finds for Tenant
Tenant Substantially Won
HPD terminated Section 8 subsidy due to "criminal activity" in 2017, and failure to provide documents to HPD. Tenant provided evidence of guilty plea/probationary sentence, successful drug rehab, and submitted documents prior to this hearing. Hearing officer found HPD's decision was mostly incorrect, reversed it, and reinstated the subsidy.
