from NBC 10 News, Philadelphia, PA Nov 16, 2022
Timekia Palmer, former PHA Section 8 resident, packed up her apartment in West Philly in June and now calls Hawaii home, thanks to a housing voucher. NBC10 investigative reporter Claudia Vargas shows us how this was possible.
"It's something that the (Philadelphia Housing) Agency encourages."
"Hawaii has absorbed the total cost of the rent and utilities, Amen!"
HNN Nov 23, 2022: Anton Krucky, director of Community Services for the city, noted 13 residents have “ported” out of Honolulu. “The 13 that left, some of those are funded, some are not,” said Krucky. “But the way we get our funding, whenever you have programs like this, there’s a lot of guidelines, and we’re able to manage the guidelines. So, one is we can pay the funding but then we also ... get the funding back.”
