Housing Policy

Funding Lock on Single Mothers Having Additional Babies

If a woman is unmarried and comes into any CHA Housing arrangement, whether onsite or scattered site or even section 8, the governement will not provide additional funding for food or medical for any pregnancies that have occurred after housing is obtained. If a person comes into CHA with one baby, then government funding will only be for one baby. Any additional needs for food and medical to accomodate any additonal children will need to be sought through the courts with the father. There will also not be upgrades to larger apartments, due to the increase in additional children while living in CHA Housing. This housing is a temporary arrangement, not a way of life.
