Nursing homes "will probably be next" among federal housing programs that have been targeted for sharp cutbacks in the ongoing investigation of mismanagement in federal housing programs, according to a senior government official. The department is reviewing an inspector general's audit of the Retirement Service program and Housing and Urban Development Secretary Jack Kemp could make decisions about the program as early as next week, the HUD official said.

HUD Secretary Jack Kemp on Thursday suspended the Retirement Service Center, a nationwide housing program for the elderly, saying that it has cost the federal government more than $119 million in direct losses and that it does not serve the low- and moderate-income citizens for whom it was created. "This is a program that should serve low-income people, but instead is serving upper- and middle-income persons--and doing it very poorly at that," Kemp said in a statement.

HUD Secretary Jack Kemp today suspended a housing program for the elderly that has cost the government more than $119 million in losses, as he struggled to clean up mismanagement and abuse within the agency dating from the Ronald Reagan Administration. Kemp announced he was halting new and pending applications for the Retirement Service Center program, saying that in addition to costing the government millions it has failed to serve the low-income elderly for whom it was designed.
