HUD: DeKalb housing agency misspent $2.5M

August 26, 2010 --

The DeKalb County Housing Authority misspent $2.5 million in restricted funds intended for low-income housing subsidies, federal auditors said Wednesday. The money was used instead to pay administrative expenses including rental cars, office supplies, office space, worker’s compensation and temps’ salaries, they found. Results of a follow-up forensic audit are expected soon.
