Approximately three cases of unreported income were discussed during Wednesday’s Annual Revere Housing Authority (RHA) Board of Commissioners meeting in the Housing Authority conference room. According to Director of Housing Management Elizabeth Forte, Public Housing Manager Evelyn Rodriguez discovered more cases of unreported income during the rent recertification process.

“Next steps depend on how much is owed,” Forte said. Forte went on to say that a private conference with these tenants will be held to discuss what she referred to as a serious lease violation. These cases will either result in a repayment agreement with the residents or the RHA will continue with the eviction process.

As for the last unreported income case that The Revere Advocate reported on in October 2018, Forte said she and Rodriquez will be in Small Claims Court with the former resident who failed to report income during their tenancy. The Housing Authority hopes an agreement will be made with the former resident to get the arrears owed to the RHA.
