- Chicago Housing Authority voucher recipients will no longer receive enough assistance to place them in the city's most luxurious high-rise buildings under a new policy, the agency announced Sunday.
The policy targets "super vouchers" that allow low-income recipients to receive up to 300 percent of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's Fair Market Rent, which for the Chicago area is $826 for a one-bedroom apartment. The new limit will be 150 percent, according to the release.
[...]The new policy will affect about 260 families, the CHA said, and all of them will have a least one year to move.
Crain's Chicago Business had this original story. Well done exposing this corrupt use of tax dollars. Now if only the rest of the media would pitch in. Crain's and The Reader can't carry it all.
