The State of Massachusetts, Department of Housing and Community Development, Boston, MA Properly Administered Its Section 8 Project Based Voucher Program

We audited the Section 8 Project-Based Voucher program operated by the State of Massachusetts, Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD), as part of our annual audit plan. Our objective was to determine whether the DHCD properly administered its Project-Based Voucher program in compliance with U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requirements. The DHCD generally administered its program in compliance with HUD requirements. Our audit testing determined that the DHCD’s contracts with administering agencies were properly administered, tenants were eligible participants, and the rental units were eligible under the program. In addition, tenant rental and housing assistance payments were calculated correctly, rental units were inspected for compliance with housing quality standards, and the DHCD sufficiently monitored its administering agencies.
