IHA has also engaged law enforcement, who are working to identify those involved."

"Being transparent about this situation is important," said Gebregziabher. "Everyone is stressed out if I'm going to get kicked out. The landlord doesn't know when he's going to get paid, and he has to pay his mortgages. It's just a vicious cycle."
  • “According to IHA, residents are not at risk of being evicted under the Housing Assistance Payments Contract and HUD regulations, but that hasn't stopped many people from worrying. Gebregziabher said he is fortunate because he has other streams of income including his construction company, One Home At A Time Roofing and Restoration, to keep him afloat while he waits on his rent payments, but he said other landlords might not be as lucky.”
