From the Highlights: "HUD's [Department of Housing and Urban Development] Office of Public and Indian Housing (PIH) administers programs that help some of the nation's most vulnerable households--including low-income families and members of Native Americans tribes--obtain safe, decent, and affordable housing. PIH also operates complementary programs, such as FSS [Family Self-Sufficiency], that are designed to help assisted households become more self-sufficient. PIH programs accounted for about 60 percent of HUD's budget authority for fiscal year 2015, or about $26 billion. GAO [Government Accountability Office] has issued four reports since March 2012 on PIH programs, including the MTW [Moving to Work], FSS, voucher, and IHBG [Indian Housing Block Grant] programs, that contained recommendations to HUD (see GAO- 12-300, GAO-12-490, and GAO-14-255). This testimony is based on these four reports. It discusses, among other things, HUD's progress in addressing prior GAO recommendations on the MTW and FSS programs, the voucher program, and the IHBG program. GAO-13-581, To update the status of prior recommendations, GAO reviewed new or revised HUD policies, procedures, and reports and interviewed officials."
