HOPEWELL, Va. (WRIC) — The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is investigating discrimination and other violations at Virginia’s first Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) conversion.
“For the last 42 years, CHP has been one of the leading advocates of affordable housing development in the Commonwealth. At this time, we have received letters from HUD and Legal Aide requesting certain documents related to our public housing (RAD) conversions of both Kippax Place and Langston Park Apartment communities in Hopewell, Va. We will be working with HUD, our existing and past residents, and partners to amicably resolve any concerns–some of which have already been addressed and/or resolved by CHP while the remaining items are being looked into by our staff.”
Hopewell Redevelopment and Housing Officials declined to comment.
