Termination of Housing Assistance Due to Crime

HUD requires HACA to terminate a family’s assistance if any household member is engaged in any illegal use of a drug or has engaged in any drug-related or violent criminal activity.

  • If you suspect that any household member of a family that is a Public Housing tenant, or that is receiving Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program assistance1,  is engaged in any illegal use of a drug or has engaged in any drug-related or violent criminal activity, promptly report your observations to the local police department.
  • After you have notified the police department, use HACA’s Fraud Hot-Line at (510) 727-8519 or HACA's Report Fraud Form to notify HACA.  Provide as much detailed information as possible, including the police department incident number if you have it.

Report Fraud. It Matters.


1 HACA is prevented by law from divulging if a tenant is a Section 8 HCVP participant.
