Fraud

FRAUD = STEALING

  • Fraud is working and not reporting your income.
  • Fraud is having someone live with you and not reporting it to the office. Does this fit someone you know? If so report it to the office. All calls are handled confidentially.


The PHA will provide each applicant and resident with a copy of “Is Fraud Worth It?” (form HUD-1141-OIG), which explains the types of actions a family must avoid and the penalties for program abuse.


The PHA will also provide each applicant and resident with a copy of “What You Should Know about EIV,” a guide to the Enterprise Income Verification (EIV) system published by HUD as an attachment to Notice PIH 2010-19. In addition, the PHA will require the head of each household to acknowledge receipt of the guide by signing a copy for retention in the family file.
