KRGV 5 – Government Agency Pulls Certification for Low Income Housing

KRGV 5 reviewed the problems facing the residents of Mercedes Palms Apartments regarding their Section 8 rental agreements.  Represented by Texas RioGrande Legal Aid, the residents are taking legal action to preserve their housing.

From KRGV:

The future of dozens of people who live at the Mercedes Palms Apartments is in limbo tonight. The Department of Housing and Urban Development has pulled the complex’s Section 8 certification.

They say, when the complex changed management in 2007, it didn’t follow proceedure.

That means the HUD use agreement granting the complex federal funding is now void.
