Nbha ‘federal investigation’ report an error, actually a routine audit

CORRECTION: Documents taken from the North Bergen Housing Authority last week were part of a routine annual audit required by federal law and were not in any way related to any type of investigation, an attorney for the agency said. CLIFFVIEW PILOT has removed the original story and regrets the error.

“The NBHA is not under any form of federal investigation. No subpoenas have been issued, no records have been removed and there is no Inspector General review taking place,” said attorney Brian Giblin.

“What is true,” Giblin said, “is that the NBHA is highly rated by the Department of Housing and Urban Development. It is considered a ‘high performing’ housing authority by HUD for the past ten years.”

The article also incorrectly stated which properties the NBHA owns, rents and manages.

The NBHA owns, rents, and manages 985 low-income public housing units and provides rental assistance under the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program to an additional 420 low-income families residing in privately-owned rental units located throughout the Township of North Bergen.

The units are spread among four developments:

*Meadowview Village (low-income housing)
*Lawler Towers (senior/disabled)
*Terrace Apartments (senior/disabled)
*Cullum Tower (senior/disabled)
