USVI wins back control of its Housing Authority
CHARLOTTE AMALIE, U.S. Virgin Islands (AP) — The U.S. Virgin Islands is once again in control of its Housing Authority agency after more than a decade of federal receivership to correct ongoing problems.
Gov. John de Jongh Jr. on Friday credited several organizational changes and other rehabilitation measures for the transfer of power.
The Housing Authority went into federal receivership in August 2003 after officials said several issues threatened the well-being of public housing residents.
The U.S. Virgin Islands has 11 public housing units.
