"We appreciate and applaud the combined efforts of the HUD Office of Inspector General, and Department of Justice as we have zero tolerance for such fraud and are committed to aggressively work with them to identify and help prosecute any individuals that would seek to defraud or abuse such an essential program," said HUD Southeast Regional Administrator Edward Jennings, Jr.
