The Aberdeen Housing Authority will be constructing a new affordable housing development for senior citizens (55 and older) called Central Villas. Construction will begin May 1, 2016 with Spring 2017 as a targeted opening date. The project will be located at 1901 S. Merton Street in Southeastern Aberdeen, which will consist of 40 units (30 one-bedrooms and 10 two-bedrooms) with eight of the units accessible for individuals with impairments. Other project amenities include a garage for each unit, an elevator, a community room with kitchen and gas fireplace, a picnic area, and a security system.
Rent WILL NOT be calculated according to your income. Each unit will have a set rent (to be determined) and you must have some type of income to qualify. (Section 8 Vouchers are accepted.)
Fraud is a criminal act in which individuals, groups, or businesses steal taxpayers’ monies from HUD and its programs. Fraud can also lead to acts of violent crime. When fraud occurs, residents and tenants become victims and HUD’s programs are abused. Tenants who make false statements regarding their income or family size, or alter official documents, are committing fraud.
Fraud has a devastating effect on HUD’s assisted rental housing programs. The Office of Inspector General wants to drive fraud out of HUD-assisted rental housing and is working closely with HUD management to rid our assisted rental housing programs of fraud.
If you suspect an applicant, tenant or landlord is committing fraud, please call the office at 605-226-2321 ext 10 or print the following form and bring/mail/fax it into the housing office. (Forms are also available at the office).
