While the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) recently announced it may end its subsidized housing contract with Barbour Gardens in Hartford because of decrepit conditions there, it is far from the only HUD related property in Connecticut on its radar screen.
Other complexes in Hartford, New Haven, Southington, Stamford, Waterbury, Willimantic, New Britain, East Haven, and Ridgefield all failed their most recent HUD inspections.
Most were inspected last year. See the list of HUD-subsidized properties and their most recent inspection scores below.
The agency does not always move tenants out, like it is considering in Hartford.
A spokeswoman tells us it depends how responsive owners are to correcting the problems HUD finds.
HUD says it wants to overhaul the way it inspects these properties because most of the time they only learn about problems if tenants reach out to the agency.
