• The Persistent Issue of Fraud in the Public Housing Sector across the United States

      Montague, Samantha
      The public housing sector and the idea of providing those who need assistance with housing has been around since President Ronald Reagan’s days and even before that, with the New York Housing Act of 1879 (Martens, 2009), when industrial workers faced wretched housing conditions. Public housing in this nation has grown from just being provided for industrial workers and their families in major cities, such as New York and Chicago, to what it is today. Today, public housing is present all across the nation and is found in every state from Indiana to Maryland to California, Florida, Oklahoma, all over. Public housing can be available in very large cities and in smaller towns.
