More than a year ago, a woman filed a lawsuit against a company she called “F**king You” for selling a house she had owned for over 20 years.
The woman, who identified herself only as Michelle, had purchased the home in August 2017 and was renting it out as part of her own “business” but found out that her home had been foreclosed on in May 2018 and that her lease had been cancelled.
In response to the eviction, Michelle sought help from a “friend” through the federal government, which took her case to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
The agency eventually granted Michelle’s request for emergency assistance and a “non-profit” was established.
“We’re going to fight to make sure we get it,” Michelle told The Washington Post in May.
“It’s a matter of people being able to live in dignity.”
After the eviction occurred, Michelle began making calls to FHADA, the government agency that provides emergency housing and legal assistance for those with federal eviction cases.
The government, along with the courts, will review Michelle’s case to determine whether it meets federal guidelines, and she will then have the option to petition the courts to reopen the case.
In the meantime, she is left with $30,000 in her bank account.
“This is really the worst thing that’s ever happened to me,” Michelle said.
“I can’t even pay rent because I don’t have my own money.”
FHDA officials told The Post that they do not comment on pending litigation, but a spokesperson said that “the Department of Health and Human Services is reviewing the case to ensure that any necessary assistance is provided.”
FHA assistance in some cases, like for veterans and homeless people, is not available to people who qualify.
“FHA helps the most vulnerable people, but we also help people with disabilities and those with limited income who need it most,” the spokesperson said.
The U.A.E. Department for Veterans Affairs said it has provided temporary housing to more than 5,500 veterans since it was created in 2007, and the agency provides emergency medical assistance to veterans, disabled and elderly veterans.
The Trump administration also recently launched a $1.2 billion “Veterans Emergency Housing and Services” initiative, which is a program that will provide housing to veterans who are unable to rent.
The program is expected to help provide temporary housing for veterans with disabilities.
In addition, FHWA is also working with the Department of Justice to help address the backlog of housing cases that it is facing.
“HUD and FHA continue to work together to address the housing backlog, including through the Justice Department’s National Housing Construction Initiative and the Office of Housing Opportunity, which provides federal assistance to assist in the housing construction process,” a spokesperson for the department said.
In a statement, the Justice department said that it “continues to provide financial assistance to FHA, HUD and VA to help them address housing backlogs and to help prevent homelessness.”
But, the department’s housing czar, Richard Shulkin, told The Hill in May that “HUD is doing everything we can to address these issues and that we are confident that we will be able to do so.
The housing development backlog is not going away.
We are working with HUD and HUD is doing what we can.”
FHO spokesperson Melissa Smith said that the department has been working with Congress to “develop a comprehensive strategy to address this issue, which includes more HUD-administered affordable housing units, more HUD programs to support housing vouchers for veterans, and more funding to FHO.”
“HUD has also been working closely with Congress and other federal partners to address issues of homelessness,” Smith said.
But the Department for Human Services said that since the Trump administration took office, it has not had a single case in which it has used the federal agency’s “Housing Opportunities and Affordability Act” to help a homeless veteran, a finding that the agency is investigating.
“If the Department can’t help, it can’t afford to help,” Smith told The Daily Beast.
“HOMELESSNESS IS NOT A PROBLEM” A spokesperson for FHHA said that, because the Trump Justice Department has not used the law to help homeless veterans, the agency has no authority to “help people find affordable housing.”
The spokesperson said the agency “continually strives to improve its services for the homeless, including by partnering with homeless shelters, faith-based agencies, community groups, and individuals.”
The Trump HUD secretary, John Kelly, told lawmakers in a recent hearing that HUD has been trying to improve “our efforts” to “make sure the homeless get housing, especially veterans.”
But it is not clear how many veterans have received help from HUD.
In recent months, the number of homeless veterans who have received HUD housing vouchers has more than doubled, according to a report released last
