MEMORANDUM FOR: Robert Poffenberger, Director of Community Planning and
                  Development, Indiana State Office


FROM: Dale L. Chouteau, District Inspector General for Audit, Midwest

SUBJECT: City of South Bend
         Broadway Street Mortgage Loan Subsidy Program
         South Bend, Indiana

We completed a review of the Broadway Street Mortgage Loan Subsidy Program which is
funded by the City of South Bend’s Community Development Block Grant Program. The
review resulted from a citizen complaint to our Office. The complainant alleged that
Block Grant funds were misappropriated and that houses purchased under the Mortgage
Loan Subsidy Program were substandard. The objectives of our review were to determine
whether the complainant’s allegations were substantiated and whether HUD’s rules and
regulations were violated.

The City was organized under the laws of the State of Indiana. The City is governed by a
Mayor and a nine member City Council. The Mayor of the City is Stephen J. Luecke.
The Community and Economic Development Department administers the City’s
Community Development Block Grant Program. Jon R. Hunt is the Department’s
Executive Director. The City’s official records for the Broadway Street Mortgage Loan
Subsidy Program are at 227 West Jefferson Boulevard, South Bend, Indiana.

To determine whether the complainant’s allegations were substantiated and whether
HUD’s rules and regulations were violated, we reviewed the City’s: Community
Development Block Grant Agreements with HUD for the periods between October 1,
1997 and September 30, 2000; Mortgage Loan Subsidy Program Guidelines; Program
administration contracts for the period between April 15, 1997 and December 31, 1999;
and Program participants’ files. We also reviewed HUD’s files for the City, the Housing
and Community Development Act of 1974, and Title 24 of the Code of Federal

Regulations Part 5. We interviewed: HUD’s staff; City employees; the former Program
administrator’s employees; the complainant; and Program participants. In addition, our
inspector inspected seven of the 20 houses that received assistance through the Broadway
Street Mortgage Loan Subsidy Program to determine whether the houses met the City’s
Building Code. The seven houses were selected based either on the homeowners’
responses to our questionnaire that problems existed with their house or their availability
for an inspection.

The City’s Broadway Street Mortgage Loan Subsidy Program was generally administered
correctly. However, we found that the City did not follow the Housing and Community
Development Act of 1974 to ensure houses assisted through the Mortgage Loan Subsidy
Program met the City’s Building Code. The Housing Inspector for the Housing Assistance
Office, which the City contracted with to administer its Program, incorrectly certified that six of
the seven houses met the City’s Building Code when they did not. As a result, Block Grant
funds were misappropriated. HUD also lacks assurance that houses were in decent condition
when the Program participants purchased the houses.

We presented our draft finding to the Director of Financial and Program Management for the
City’s Community and Economic Development Department. We held an exit conference
with the Director on August 15, 2000. The City disagreed that some of the housing
construction work that was improperly performed or not provided was a violation of the
City’s Building Code. The City agreed to ensure the construction work was corrected.

We included an excerpt of the City’s comments with the finding. The complete text of the
comments are in Appendix B with the exception of one attachment that was not necessary
for understanding the City’s comments. A complete copy of the City’s comments with the
attachment was provided to HUD’s Indiana State Office Director of Community Planning
and Development. A copy of this memorandum was provided to the City’s Mayor and the
Executive Director of the City’s Community and Economic Development Department.

Within 60 days, please provide us, for each recommendation made in this memorandum, a
status report on: (1) the corrective action taken; (2) the proposed corrective action and the date
to be completed; or (3) why action is considered unnecessary. Also, please furnish us copies of
any correspondence or directives issued because of the review.

  The City Did Not Ensure That Houses Met
     Its Building Code Before Receiving
                  Assistance
The City of South Bend did not follow the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974
to ensure houses assisted through the Broadway Street Mortgage Loan Subsidy Program met
the City’s Building Code. The City assisted 20 participants in purchasing houses under the
Program. We inspected seven of the 20 houses and concluded each of the seven houses had
construction work not provided or improperly performed. The Housing Inspector for the
Housing Assistance Office, which the City contracted with to administer its Mortgage Loan
Subsidy Program, incorrectly certified that six of the seven houses met the City’s Building
Code when they did not. A requirement of the Housing and Community Development Act of
1974 is that when Community Development Block Grant funds are used to assist individuals in
purchasing a house, the house should be in decent condition. HUD defines decent housing as a
dwelling unit that meets the applicable State and local building codes. The City established the
Mortgage Loan Subsidy Program to meet the national objective of providing decent housing
for low and moderate income individuals. The problems with the Mortgage Loan Subsidy
Program occurred because the Housing Assistance Office did not have proper procedures and
controls over the Program to ensure houses met the City’s Building Code before the
participants received the assistance. The City also did not monitor the Housing Assistance
Office to ensure it administered the Program as required. As a result, Block Grant funds were
not efficiently and effectively used. HUD also lacks assurance that houses were in decent
condition when the Program participants purchased the houses.



Housing And Community                  Title I, Section 101(c), of the Housing and Community
Development Act                        Development Act of 1974 requires that when
                                       Community Development Block Grant funds are used
                                       to provide housing to low and moderate income
                                       residents of urban communities, the housing unit
                                       should be in decent condition. 24 CFR Part 5.703(g)
                                       defines decent housing as a dwelling unit that meets the
                                       applicable State and local building codes.

Sample Selection And                   We selected a sample of seven of the 20 houses that

                              April 1998 and April 2000.

                              Six of the 20 homeowners indicated in their
                              responses to our questionnaire that problems existed
                              with their housing construction work.           One
                              homeowner was selected based upon his availability
                              for an inspection. The seven houses were inspected
                              by our inspector during the week of June 5, 2000.

                              We provided the inspection results to HUD’s
                              Indiana State Office Director of Community

                                     The City established its Broadway Street Mortgage
                                     Loan Subsidy Program to provide housing assistance
                                     to low and moderate income households interested in
                                     purchasing a new house. The housing assistance was
                                     intended to promote homeownership in the City’s
                                     Southeast Neighborhood. The Housing Inspector for
                                     the Housing Assistance Office, which the City
                                     contracted with to administer its Mortgage Loan
                                     Subsidy Program, was responsible for assuring that the
                                     houses met the City’s Building Code.

                                     Our inspector determined that the Housing Inspector
                                     for the Housing Assistance Office did not assure that
                                     the houses met the City’s Building Code when they
                                     were purchased. The houses included construction
                                     work that was not performed correctly and not
                                     provided. The work incorrectly performed and not
                                     provided related to such items as no drywall fire break
                                     under basement stairwells, a sagging floor, stairwells
                                     with inconsistent stair heights and no trim boards
                                     installed, no attaching screws for basement support
                                     posts, no privacy locks for bathrooms, and an
                                     uncovered hole penetrating the exterior wall near the
                                     entrance of the gas line to a house. None of the houses
                                     were caulked where such items as electrical and gas
                                     lines penetrated the exterior of the houses. The
                                     following pictures show examples of construction work
                                     that was improperly performed or not provided.
The house at 629 Pennsylvania
Avenue did not have the required
drywall fire break installed under
the basement stairwell.

The house at 309 Broadway Street
had an undersized floor joist in the
laundry room causing the floor to
sag in the middle of the room. The
floor tiles are cracking as a result
of the floor sag.




An unused open hole was made
through the exterior wall of the
home located at 634 Pennsylvania
Avenue. This could allow rodent
and vermin infestation to the
house.




                                       The Housing Assistance Office’s Housing Inspector
                                       was responsible for performing the inspections of the
                                       homes to determine whether they met the City’s
                                       Building Code. He certified that six of the seven
                                       houses met the City’s Building Code. The house at
                                       617 Pennsylvania Avenue was certified as meeting the
                                       Building Code by a former City Code Inspector. The
                                       City’s Building Commissioner said the former Code
                                       Inspector over looked the items that did not meet the
                                       Building Code. The Housing Assistance Office’s
                                       Inspector said it was an oversight that he failed to
                                       identify that the houses did not meet the City’s Building
                                       Code. The Executive Director for the Housing
                                       Assistance Office said no one from her Office
                                       monitored the Housing Inspector’s inspections of the
                                       houses to ensure the quality of the Inspector’s work.

                    The City did not monitor the Housing Assistance
                    Office to ensure it administered the City’s Broadway
                    Street Mortgage Loan Subsidy Program as required.
                    As a result, Community Development Block Grant
                    funds were not efficiently and effectively used. HUD
                    also lacks assurance that houses met the City’s
                    Building Code when the Program participants
                    purchased the houses.


Auditee Comments    Excerpts paraphrased from the City’s comments on
                    our draft finding follow. Appendix B, pages 12 to
                    14, contains the complete text of the comments.

                    While we agree that the Building Code violations on
                    the houses must be completed correctly, we do not
                    agree that every item cited in your report is actually
                    required by the City’s Code. We do agree with the
                    spirit of this finding and fully intend to take steps to
                    ensure that the necessary repairs are completed.

                    We intend to work with the administering entity to
                    minimize any future problems.

OIG Evaluation Of   We agree that not every item cited as housing
Auditee Comments    construction that was improperly performed or not
                    provided was a violation of the City’s Building
                    Code. However, the seven houses cited in the
                    finding contained between five and eight Code
                    violations. In addition, the houses had construction
                    work that was not a violation of the City’s Building
                    Code, but the work did not meet the terms of the
                    sale agreements. The actions proposed by the City
                    to ensure the housing construction work is corrected
                    should ensure that the houses meet the City’s
                    Building Code and the sale agreements.

                    The City should establish procedures and controls to
                    monitor the applicable contractor, who administers
                    the City’s Broadway Street Mortgage Loan Subsidy
                    Program, to ensure the contractor follows the
                    Program’s requirements.

Auditee Comments    We disagree that Title I, Section 101(c), of the
                    Housing and Community Development Act of 1974
                    requires Community Development Block Grant
                    funds to provide decent housing to low and
                    moderate income residents of urban communities.
                    While providing decent housing is certainly one of
                    the objectives, it is not required that all or any Block
                    Grant funds be used to provide housing.

                    While 24 CFR Part 5.703(g) says a decent, safe, and
                    sanitary dwelling unit means a unit that meets the
                    applicable State and local building codes, the
                    implementing regulations for the Block Grant
                    Program are contained at 24 CFR Part 570.
                    Nothing requires home purchases assisted with
                    Block Grant funds to meet the requirements of 24
                    CFR Part 5.703(g).

                    The City used Community Development Block
OIG Evaluation Of
                    Grant funds to provide financial assistance to low
Auditee Comments    and moderate income individuals interested in
                    purchasing a new home. The City met the objective
                    of serving income eligible individuals. However, the
                    City was also required to ensure that when Block
                    Grant funds were used to provide housing, the
                    housing unit should be in decent condition as
                    required by Title I, Section 101(c), of the Housing
                    and Community Development Act of 1974. HUD
                    defines decent housing as a dwelling unit that meets the
                    applicable State and local building codes.

                    24 CFR Part 5.703(g) is HUD’s definition of decent
                    housing.


Auditee Comments    The Housing Assistance Office was not required
                    under contract to inspect the homes prior to
                    purchase.     We believe the City’s Building
                    Department inspection should be satisfactory to
                    ensure the quality of the homes. The Housing
                    Assistance Office did inspect these houses.

                                                                        Finding


                    Loan Subsidy Program. The Office’s Housing
                    Inspector performed inspections of the houses to
                    ensure they met the City’s Building Code. The City
                    paid the Housing Assistance Office for the housing inspection
                    services. Therefore, the City should have ensured
                    that the Housing Inspector’s inspections were
                    performed correctly and that the houses met the
                    City’s Building Code.


Auditee Comments    While the finding states $8,350 in housing
                    construction work needs attention and faults the
                    City and the Housing Assistance Office for failing to
                    ensure the construction work was corrected at the
                    time of purchase, several of these items were noted
                    as warranty or material defect. Thus, those items
                    only appeared after the house was purchased. We
                    agree the builder may have a responsibility to correct
                    such items as cracked tiles, broken driveway apron,
                    and cracks in the drywall, these are certainly not
                    items anyone expected. Citing these items in the
                    finding is unjustified. These items total $1,875,
                    leaving a balance of $6,475 as potential Code
                    violations.

OIG Evaluation Of   As previously mentioned, we agreed that not every
Auditee Comments    item cited as housing construction work improperly
                    performed or not provided was a violation of the
                    City’s Building Code. The construction work cited
                    as warranty or material defect are items not required
                    by the City’s Code; however, these are items that
                    the builder or his subcontractors did not perform
                    correctly. The City should ensure that these items
                    are corrected to met the intent of the Program to
                    provide decent, safe, and sanitary housing.


Auditee Comments    The City’s Building Commissioner indicates the
                    Code numbers cited in the finding do not correspond
                    to the current Building Code adopted by the City.
                    The Commissioner provided a copy of the City’s
                    current Code to the auditors, but it appears a
                    different version of Code may have been used in
                    developing the finding.

OIG Evaluation Of   The Building Commissioner did not provide a copy
Auditee Comments    of the City’s Building Code. While an older version
                    of the City’s Code was used in developing the
                    finding, the Building Commissioner did verify that
                    the Code citations mentioned in the inspection
                    reports did exist in the City’s current Building Code.
                    We provided the City’s Director of Finance and
                    Program Management for the Community and
                    Economic Development Department with a schedule
                    that showed the housing construction work that was
                    cited as Code violations were contained in the City’s
                    current Building Code.


Recommendations     We recommend that the Director of Community
                    Planning and Development, Indiana State Office,
                    assures that the City of South Bend:

                    A.     Ensures that the $8,350 of construction work
                           cited in this finding is correctly completed. If
                           the City is unable to ensure the construction
                           work is completed, then the City should
                           reimburse its Community Development Block
                           Grant Program from non-Federal funds the
                           total amount of housing assistance that was
                           provided to the applicable houses and release
                           the applicable loan repayment agreements.

                    B.     Establishes procedures and controls to
                           ensure assisted houses meet the City’s
                           Building Code before the participants receive
                           the housing assistance as required by Title I,
                           Section 101(c), of the Housing and
                           Community Development Act of 1974.

                    C.     Establishes procedures and controls to
                           monitor the applicable contractor, who
                           administers the City’s Broadway Street
                           Mortgage Loan Subsidy Program, to ensure
                           the contractor follows the Program’s
                           requirements.

Heath Wolfe
Assistant District Inspector General for Audit
Department of Housing and Urban Development
Office of Inspector General
77 West Jackson Boulevard, Room 2646
Chicago, IL 60604

Dear Mr. Wolfe:

We have received your letter dated August 1, 2000 and the attached draft audit finding on
our Broadway Street (Southeast) Mortgage Subsidy program. The purpose of the
program is to assist low to moderate income clients purchase newly constructed homes
within the Southeast neighborhood. While we agree all outstanding code items on these
units must be completed correctly, we do not agree that every item cited in your report is
actually a code required item. We further believe your stated rationale in determining this
issue constitutes a finding, took literary license in interpreting the applicability of certain
laws and regulations. We will clarify our positions on these points later in this letter. That
said, as we told your auditors, we do agree with the spirit of parts of the finding and, as
recommended, fully intend to take steps to work with all involved to have all necessary
repairs completed for the benefit of our clients, the assisted home buyers. We further
intend to work with the subgrantee administering this program to minimize any future
problems.

First, we disagree with the assertion that “Title I, Section 101(c), of the Housing and
Community Development Act of 1974 requires Community Development Block Grant
funds to provide decent housing to low and moderate income residents of urban
communities”. While providing decent housing is certainly one of the objectives it is not
required that all, or any, CDBG funds must be used in that fashion. Further, while 24
CFR 5.703(g) may say “a decent, safe, and sanitary dwelling unit means a unit that meets
the applicable State and local building codes”, the implementing regulations of the CDBG
program under 24 CFR 570, specifically 24 CFR 570.201(n) (Homeownership assistance)
under which our Broadway Street Mortgage Subsidy program is eligible, neither
references nor requires home purchases assisted with CDBG to meet the requirements of
24 CFR 5.703(g).




   Exit                                        Page 12                               00-CH-249-1811
                                                                                  Appendix B

Second, our subgrantee, Housing Assistance Office (HAO) was not required under
contract to inspect the homes prior to purchase. Indeed, because of our understanding
outlined above, we believe the Building Department inspection should be satisfactory to
ensure the quality of the homes. However, Housing Assistance Office does provide an
inspection service on other, similar programs and, in an effort to provide better service for
the home buying clients did inspect these units.

Third, we must note that while your finding states $8,350 worth of items needing
attention, and faults the City and its subgrantee for failing to have all these items corrected
at the time the home was purchased, several of these items you noted as “warranty” or
“material defect” items, meaning those conditions only appeared during the passage of
time, as the house was occupied. We agree the builder may have the responsibility to
correct such items (cracked tiles, broken driveway apron, cracks in drywall), but they
certainly are not items anyone could have foreseen would develop in the future. Counting
those as part of our “finding” is unjustified. According to our calculations, these items
which are clearly in this category total $1,875, leaving a balance of $6,475 as potential
code items.

Fourth, our Building Commissioner indicates the code numbers cited in your report do not
correspond to the correct current code book adopted for South Bend, Indiana. The
Building Commissioner gave a copy of the correct current code to your auditor during a
personal meeting on the subject, but it appears some different version of code may have
been used in developing your report. We have attached our line by line response to each
cited area of concern listed in your report. In general, we assert $3,275 of the items listed
are definitely not code violations, leaving the cost of correcting potential code violations
to be $3,200. (Please note there are $1,075 in items which we cannot tell from the
picture/information provided whether an actual violation exists, if it is determined there is
no violation, the amount will decrease.) For seven units, averaging about $100,000 each
in appraised value, that’s about ½ of 1%.

We feel it is important to note that the amount of work needing to be corrected is very
minor and completely normal in new housing construction. We agree code violations
must be corrected, but are not sure the magnitude of the need, nor the regulatory
foundation are sufficient to warrant a “finding”.

Finally, we are disturbed that this draft does not speak al all to the overwhelming benefit
to both our client home buyers and our community revitalization efforts this program
provides to South Bend. Your auditors were visibly impressed with the overall quality of
these homes. They are beautiful! A real asset to our community. While the program is
not perfect, we are working hard to provide an exceptional opportunity for eligible home
buyers-both the chance to live in a large, beautiful new home, and the potential to
recognize a real increase in net worth-because they are willing to take a risk in a
neighborhood during its rebuilding.

In closing, we would like to thank you and your staff for your diligence and
professionalism in conducting this audit. We were also impressed with their genuine
concern for our clients and their welfare. As we discussed with them many times, we are
open to suggestions for improvement to our programs and sincerely wish to provide great
