IHA must hire independent monitor

INDIANAPOLIS -- The United States Department of Housing and Urban Development wants the Indianapolis Housing Agency to hire an independent monitor to oversee the millions of dollars paid to Hoosiers in need.

The monitor will be on the job for two years. IHA must also provide training to its finance department to make sure the workers follow federal rules. 

IHA released a statement about the monitor, saying:

"We welcome this additional level of checks and balances and the opportunity to strengthen our operations and accountability throughout all levels of the organization."

IHA faced criticism when it bought a $1,100 couch set. The organization said it was necessary and under budget, even though the agency doesn't get enough money to house thousands of families who languish on a waiting list.
