Poor Families Use ‘Supervouchers’ to Rent in the City’s Priciest Buildings

Alby Gallun, Chicago Business, July 28, 2014

The high-rise at 500 N. Lake Shore Drive is the second-most expensive in the city, with rents for a one-bedroom apartment approaching $3,000 a month, well beyond the reach of most Chicago residents.

But that’s not too much for the Chicago Housing Authority, which has used federal tax dollars to pick up most of the tab for four lucky residents in the year-old building, with its sweeping views of Lake Michigan, a concierge and a dog-grooming center.

The tenants moved in over the past two years as part of a push by the CHA to expand its housing voucher program so that more low-income residents can leave the city’s roughest neighborhoods and start a new life in places with low poverty and crime and close to good schools and jobs.

Yet some landlords say it’s a mistake to use scarce tax dollars to pay ultra-high rents for a fortunate few when more than 15,000 people sit on the CHA’s voucher waiting list.

“This is nuts,” says landlord Tony Rossi, president of Chicago-based RMK Management Corp., who describes himself as a liberal Democrat. “In a situation where you’re dealing with a low-income person, do they really need a 25th-floor apartment with a lake view? It just doesn’t make sense to me.”

The CHA says in a statement that the “exception payments” for high-cost apartments cover less than 2 percent of the authority’s roughly 38,000 outstanding vouchers. The higher payments–known as supervouchers–are necessary to help low-income residents move into better neighborhoods, which have few affordable housing options, the authority says.

Most landlords agree with the effort to expand the use of “housing choice vouchers,” formerly known as Section 8 vouchers, to more prosperous parts of the city. Vouchers have become a bigger part of the CHA’s policy since it tore down big public housing projects like Cabrini-Green, offering recipients more flexibility to choose where to live so they can escape the cycle of poverty.

Under the voucher program, which is federally funded but run by local agencies like the CHA, an eligible resident can rent an apartment in a privately owned building. Voucher holders generally must pay up to 30 percent of their monthly income, if they have any, to cover rent and utilities, with the CHA picking up the rest.

HUD caps how much the CHA can pay a landlord. A few years ago, the CHA could not pay more than 110 percent of a fair market rent calculated by HUD. The current fair market rent in Cook County for a one-bedroom apartment is $826 a month.

But HUD allowed the CHA to change its rules in 2010, pushing the cap up to 300 percent in designated “opportunity areas,” such as downtown and Lakeview, where poverty is low and subsidized housing is scarce.

{snip}

The CHA has approved 706 supervouchers since HUD signed off on the higher limits, and the number has jumped in the past two years. The CHA approved 364 in the first half of the year, up from 291 for all of 2013, 44 in 2012 and seven in 2011, according to the authority. Eighty-seven payments exceeded 200 percent of HUD’s fair market rent in the first six months of the year, versus 49 for 2013 overall.

Eleven leases hit the 300 percent cap in the first six months of 2014, up from three for last year, according to the CHA. {snip}

{snip}

According to the CHA, 15,230 people were on its waiting list for housing vouchers at the end of 2013.

In its statement, the CHA says exception payments provide “CHA families the ability to choose where they want to live and enjoy the great diversity that Chicago communities have to offer.” {snip}

  • “Describes himself as a liberal Democrat”

    Even a lot of liberal Democrats want no part of this mess, just like a lot of them want no part of open borders.

    However, like Steve Sailer, I think a lot of these “low income” slots in this high rise won’t go to the truly ghetto, they’ll go to the lower income relatives and friends of politically connected and important people.

    • Who Me?

      The nice black lady down the street can turn pure ghetto in 2.5 seconds if you say the wrong thing to her or look the wrong way, or try to tell her kid not to pee on your front porch or something.

      • Usually Much Calmer

        Or if a white man wins the white house again.

        • NotTooSwift

          Never happen. Same thing happened to our formally great cities…except Detroit. The just got a white mayor. The fella needs to get his head examined.

      • TruthBeTold

        Amen.

    • Fighting_Northern_Spirit

      I wouldn’t be so sure. It’s almost impossible to get on the public housing waiting list here in Los Angeles since it’s been closed for years, but there’s a loophole for those living in homeless shelters. I know of two completely ghetto Hispanic men of dubious citizenship who were set up in very expensive Valley apartments ($2K+/mo.) this way. The only political connection you need is non-white skin as far as I can see.

    Didn’t Marie Antoinette say, “Let them eat Section Eight“?

  • Whitetrashgang

    Make them build their own housing, America is broke. Or they can live in a old airplane hanger or school bus.Hell I had to live in the back seat of a BMW 3 series for a month with no food.A real man doesn’t go on welfare,if they need a job kill a illegal alien and take theirs.

    • Usually Much Calmer

      I like how you mention it was a 3 series. It’s the details that really bring a story home, you know?

      • NotTooSwift

        The 3’s backseat is very uncomfortable. I always preferred the 2 Series, especially when dating.

        • IstvanIN

          Aren’t they all small cars?

          • Usually Much Calmer

            On the right real estate, I could live comfortably in a 7 series. They are boats. I’m small.

            I don’t know what a 2 series is except maybe the 2002, which is clown car sized.

  • JackKrak

    Think about it – you’re a typical dim-witted mestizo somewhere south of the border and you hear that little Pedro next door, the one who quit school at 12 to focus on sitting on the front porch full-time, hopped a train to Tejas and eventually wound up in Chicago. Instead of living on the streets and going hungry, Pedro is living in a luxury apartment in the most coveted part of a huge American city and Tio Sam is paying for it.

    Why wouldn’t you and everyone you know be on that next train?

    • Einsatzgrenadier

      Being an “immigrant” is such a shameful, disgraceful thing these days. Whenever I hear the word “immigrant” I think of coward, traitor, thief, bum and parasite. Only losers and failures “immigrate.” The best people stay in their own countries and try to make them better places to live. Loyalty to your own country is really a virtue, not a vice. People who “immigrate” are human filth who deserve nothing except contempt.

  • ncpride

    More free stuff for people who haven’t earned any of it.

    Slightly off topic, but as I was picking my son up from football practice last night, I was talking quietly with some other moms when we heard another woman talking, who has several half black kids, bragging about her daughter getting a free ride to college because of her ‘minority status’ and all the ‘free money’ she was getting. My daughter was the top three most decorated seniors in the same graduating class, and there was no one pounding our door down to give her ‘free money’. I couldn’t help it… I rolled my eyes and snorted and was surprised the other moms did the same. I still believe a lot of Whites feel the way we do, but we just don’t know how to connect on the subject.

    • Good for you. Shame them. Shame all of them. It may not do any good, but shame them anyway.

    • Whitetrashgang

      These people have earned nothing, talk about black privilege.

    • NotTooSwift

      I wonder will happen WHEN all of that ends. It will one day.

      • Sick of it

        She and her mixed brats won’t be welcome in the new nation that arises from the ashes. That much is certain.

    • Alexandra1973

      I’m surprised she hasn’t become a Pez dispenser yet.

      That’s disgraceful.

      • ncpride

        No kidding. This silly woman brags about her daughter getting a free ride to college and pretty much admitted her only credentials for getting in was the fact that she beds and reproduces with black men, who quickly abandon her. I know, this is a tiny town.

        Other than being disgraceful, it’s actually pretty cruel of them. My daughter says there is no way this half black girl can cope with college course work, no matter how dumbed down. She would know as they have been in the same schools and grade since kindergarten.

  • willbest

    I actually approve of this use. All government programs that seek to increase vibrancy should locate the vibrants next door to the elites for a solid 2-3 years.

    We should expand on this. Lets rent out half of Maratha’s vineyard and the Hamptons next summer and house the flood of illegal “children” across the border out there.

    • Flossie

      Yes, but . . . we dopey, middle- and lower-middle-class taxpayers have to foot the bill. Some of these Chicago Section 8ers are living in the Aqua Towers (do a Google image search) in apartments that cost over three times as much as I pay for my modest one-bedroom place. And I’m paying for it.

  • In a sane country, what I’ve just read would not be happening. Government is out of control, seeing taxpayers as victims ready for a fleecing, while buying black and brown votes with more freebees.

    On the other hand, the more that stuff like this makes people realize the government and the blacks and browns are their enemies, the better for our cause.

    • Einsatzgrenadier

      The Feds can’t give out free stuff forever. What are they going to do when they don’t have any more goodies to keep the blacks and browns pacified? The biggest mistake the Feds made was to assume that prosperity forged nations and strengthened social cohesion. No, only adversity can do that. When the dollar collapses and the prosperity is gone, black and brown allegiance to the Feds will disappear as well. The only thing the Feds can do is increase their totalitarian grip on power or flee to some island in the south Pacific, but only in order to escape the hell they created for their white citizens.

      • The worse things get economically, the better for our cause. Worse is better. Let the blacks burn down their areas in anger when the EBT cards don’t work. Let the Messcans self deport back to Mexico. The real unemployment rate is north of 20 percent the last time I checked in on the shadowstats website. The real inflation rate is so high as to make food quite expensive for a working class white family.

        Viking Bitch’s strategy is to have whites work the system to bankrupt it that much faster. Great idea as far as I’m concerned.

        • Spikeygrrl

          Yeah, you and Viking and Cloward and Piven. Just peachy.

      • Tarczan

        You just don’t get it do you? It’s just digits in a computer. It really could go on for a long time before the it hits the fan, which it will eventually.

      • Usually Much Calmer

        Yes, but you know the Keynes quote, “The markets can stay irrational longer than you can stay solvent”? Perhaps our society can stay irrational longer than we can stay viable. Witness South Africa. I hope we don’t go quietly.

    • Who Me?

      On the other hand, the more that stuff like this makes people realize the government and the blacks and browns are their enemies, the better for our cause.

      Only if they know about it. How many of the general public ever heard or read this, I wonder. People need to have this proclaimed loud and clear, each and every day. Each and every instance should be drummed into their thick skulls full of mush. Put it on TV. Put it in the newspapers. Put it in magazines. Put it on billboards. People don’t like paying taxes. Even those who feel that “we have to pay our fair share to help those less fortunate” don’t like having their (forced) generosity abused. Let them know they are being treated this way by a government that has nothing but contempt for them and only cares for their well-being in so far as it affects their ability to shove more money into the hands of those who redistribute the wealth (from the productive to the parasitical).

    • Rhialto

      Exactly, under BHO America has become certifiably insane.

  • Tarczan

    I don’t understand this, because a landlord has the right to refuse sec. 8. Or at least they used to have that right. Why would an owner of a high end building allow section 8?

    • Who Me?

      Why would they care as long as they get their price.

      • NotTooSwift

        Check out the following regarding a “poor door” in a luxury high-rise in New York.

        It’s about time the rich get black folk jammed down their throats. Welcome to the club, Libs.

      • Tarczan

        Two reasons:1. The blacks will destroy the place, easily within a year. Then comes the “annual inspection” .
        2. The darkies will terrorize and antagonize the other tenants.

    • journey

      In CA, there is a legal requirement for so many low income units. The county I live in is currently losing as we were able to delay it some time.

    • Ngati Pakeha

      Maybe the section 8 rent is guaranteed? Just a thought as I don’t know for sure in the US. In other Western countries landlords, which I am one, can get guaranteed rental payments if they sign up for such schemes. Quite often the impetus for these sorts of shenanigans actually emanate from the property developer/landlord themselves. They will play both sides to maximize their return. Guaranteed income is like gold to the greedy especially as they are quite often deeply in debt themselves.

      • Tarczan

        I was a sec 8 landlord for many years, and the sec 8 tenants are the worst of the worst. They really will destroy a place in a year. There is no way renting to sec 8 blacks in a high end building is a good move for the owner. It will drive out the good tenants, ruin the place, and making renting in the future much harder.

        The whole story is not being told here.

    • Screamin_Ruffed_Grouse

      I actually asked this question of a landlord I knew some years ago (though not one with property as high end as this). Quick answer: government check. Guaranteed. On time. Also his Sec. 8 units got a lot more lenient treatment from inspectors than his regular units.

      • Tarczan

        Another reason, and maybe the most important, to not rent to Sec 8 is the HA’s themselves. They are all black, and thus completely incompetent.They never answer the phones and the voice mails are all full. Really! One landlord said he would sit on the phone for hours to contact them.The inspectors write up violations incorrectly and miss things and then find things that don’t exist. Most of the violations are unintelligible. I’m not exaggerating on this.They write up nonsensical violation and there is no way to question them. They will show up in 2 weeks and you better have them fixed, even if you can’t decipher what they wrote. The tenant is supposed to be responsible for damaged items, but it is always the landlords fault.

        I remember going to the CMHA office one time and seeing a bunch of white guys in a room with stacks of papers, and asked them what they were doing. They were the auditors. They told me there was no way to make any sense of the books, they were a disaster, calling it unbelievably bad, no records whatever.
        Keep in mind this operation has a budget in the hundreds of millions of dollars annually. Naturally the local media reports on none of this.

  • Tarczan

    Landlord pays. Used to be, when sec. 8 was new the HA paid for damages. That threatened to bankrupt the HA’s.

  • Who Me?

    I also recall a TV newscaster interviewing a Black female with the camera turning. While her brats were using the hotel beds as trampolines.

    Wasn’t that Angel Adams who had 16 or 18 kids by a bunch of different baby daddies, and was crying for somebody to be responsible for all her “chillens”? (Somebody besides herself, of course.)

  • Pro_Whitey

    This is another example of the nominal government policy being that minority dysfunction is like a poison, where the dose makes the poison, and if you spread out the dysfunction enough, it becomes diluted and harmless. My observations indicate that the dysfunction is more like a virus, that infects and replicates wherever it goes. I think the government bureaucrats who impose such policies actually agree with me. We should be packing the poor into workhouses, where they would have to work 8-10 hours per day, 6 days per week, even if the work is just turning some capstan to pump water into the building. Keep them busy, give them the minimum to survive, and let the people who add value enjoy the luxuries they create.

    • Kenner

      When The Atlantic was still a great mag, about five years ago, it had a story about how spreading Section 8 throughout a city/suburb just increased the area affected by crime, and made controlling it more difficult.
      I believe Clinton promoted dispersing Section 8 to ‘where the jobs are’. Kind of the same idea as school integration, with the same bad outcome.

    • TruthBeTold

      There are many theories about the effort to force-integrate race and class:

      White people will discover their common humanity with non-whites.

      Those pesky, intractable problems that persistently plague minority will magically disappear just from being around White people.

      Non-whites will emulate White people.

      Non-whites will see that they DO have a future.

      Etc.

      There are many more. Everyone one equally implausible and absurd. But ‘progressive’ liberals sustain themselves on false hope. It’s all they have since reality constantly proves them wrong.

    • M&S

      >>

      >>

      No. First because we are too few and the resulting revolution would lead to a racial civil war where aging whites would fight both their brainwashed youth and the other ethnies who are younger and harder than we are.

      Second, because we are better than that.
      We know what that did to create a class divide amongst our own people in industrial England, with even child labor being exploited unto death and ‘poor hospitals’ becoming a means to guarantee that death as an alternative to eternal indenturement for basic services.

      WE MUST NOT become our enemies as savages in white skin.

      Having said this, anyone on S8 must be willing to be vasectomied or ligated until such time as they come off of it and there is no reason for them not to be subject to the same standards of perfection as a Marine in boot when it comes to how clean they keep their home. Or kicked to the curb they shall go.

      Keep in mind folks: It’s roughly 700 dollars a month for SSI or 8,400 dollars a year.

      MINIMUM SECURITY prison is 24,000 dollars a year and high sec is 40,000. Supermax is over 100,000.

      If you want to solve the problem you must do two things:

      A. Get white women to breed and dedicate their lives to raising the kinds of loved children they once did while staying out of a much smaller, better paid, workforce. Non traumatized childhoods make genius possible and we need genius now, more than ever before, to make up for all the mistakes we have made in a competitive, info dominant, high tech, world economy.

      B. Invest in the future you will never see. Support the worthless while you develop technological means to replace their menial labor in your society _at your benefit_ (5 robots = ten hands, how many high end service jobs could you bid on with that much free labor?). And use differential 3:0 breeding rates to make sure they are gone within a generation or three.

      Those who want a future for their kind will contribute. Those who simply are alienated to the point of wanting an option out alternative to being dumb donkeys in a culture that doesn’t appreciate them enough to give them equal salaries for minor social roles will be good little S8 takers.

      And those who go nuts within the system of managed herd care will commit three crimes at which point you can say: “For the good of society, we cannot let you hurt anymore.” And needle them.

      I realize it is innately distasteful to create blanket options like this because there will always be losses that could have been saved or victims of their own vice that were in fact innocent ‘that one last time’.

      But it’s better to temper mercy with dedication to your own folk and future than it is to go extreme towards either end of the spectrum. Because it is that future that you are saving the best-average outcome for.
      Outcome matters. Not motive. Not moment. But trendlines to a liveable future.

  • IKUredux

    Cripes, color me White. Or, color me confused. I thought it was Whites who had to embrace and enjoy diversity. The implication being that Whites were NOT diverse. So, now we get “CHA families the ability to choose where they want to live and enjoy the great diversity that Chicago communities have to offer.” Oh really. Although, maybe this is a tacit acknowledgement that Whites are rare, in Chicago and the rest of the world. When you really look at this diversity scam, you can’t help but notice that the ONLY true diversity in this world are the looks of Whites. Yuck, the rest of the world looks like mud. Mud colored skin, mud colored eyes, mud colored hair. And, for the most part, muddied thinking.

    “they can escape the cycle of poverty.” This sounds similar to the de-segregation of schools. Sit next to white kids and their low IQs will magically automatically rise. In reality, the utter inabilities and inadequacies became too glaring. Solution: let’s dumb down the schools.

    HUD has been planning the moving of low end diversity into high end areas for some time. It was a great success in low and middle class areas.

    Yikes, it didn’t hit me until I read that one sentence: the “border crisis” now perfectly mirrors the mass immigration invasion from the plot of “Camp of the Saints”, where France chose to adopt thousands of kids from India but, when they reached critical mass, declared the adoption program OVER.
    So the Indians started swarming the French embassy, basically throwing their kids over the gates.

    Actually, I think this is great. Section 8 etc. residents should be placed in areas with upper middle and upper class White people, who are oh so for diversity. Let the well to do Whites experience the “vibrant” diversity they try to impose on everyone else while they live in their cloistered mostly White suburbs and hip urban enclaves.

  • Katherine McChesney

    In Santa Monica, the posh apartment and condo complexes will house Section 8’s on the lowest floors of the building. They do NOT get the amenities of the paying residents. No views, no pool privileges and no access to the spas and gyms. They also have a separate entrance to their apartments.

    A relative has been trying to sell 2 glorious 1920 condos in Lakeview for 3 years. It is just a little bit north of the gold coast. These are 8 room condos with 14 ft ceilings in the main rooms, walk in closets, beautiful moldings with built in bookcases, even views of the lake. But they have been on the market for 3 years.
    Without the blacks rampaging in from the west and south sides to rape and pillage it would be a perfect city neighborhood; excellent bus and subway transit, 2 blocks from the park and 3 blocks from the beach, big tall street trees, 1 private and 2 catholic high schools nearby as well as catholic and lutheran grade schools., the Sheridan road shopping district, easy car access to everywhere, beautiful early 20th century buildings instead of post WW2 boxes,

    It is also near the Rush st club and bar area where the blacks swarm every week end to attack and rob Whites. Also fairly close is Wrigleyville the gay neighborhood where blacks attack the Whites constantly and the city leadership has ordered the police to stand down and let the blacks do as they wish.

    • Flossie

      I’m slightly familiar with the area. Didn’t the problem really take off once the Center on Halsted opened up? And there are a couple of similar places that have put out the liberal welcome mat for the nonwhite LGBT crowd. They attract all sorts of unwanted activity, from simple mischief to mayhem and the occasional murder. I’ve been to the Whole Foods early on a Sunday morning and seen groups of black cross-dressers hollering and carrying on as they like to do; they obviously hadn’t been home since the previous day. Lordy. But at least the liberals get to feel smug about their noble intentions.

    Problem with the “respectable” affirmative action blacks is their friends and relatives.
    Just let a few teen age grandsons and nephews in those buildings and all he!! will break loose. I’ve heard of White Chicagoans having to move not so much because of black neighbors but the visitors of those black neighbors who rob, shoplift, steal cars, break into cars and commit other crimes when “visiting”.
    The housing authority is completely affirmative action blacks and they will never, never allow the landlords to evict black savages.
    Most of us at amren have worked enough with blacks to know how the supposedly respectable school principals, police officers and parole officers, hospital administrators and other affirmative action blacks in well paid positions spend so much of their time dealing with their children’s and grandchildren’s bail hearings, criminal trials, parole officers (mostly black), child welfare investigations of the abused children and the rest of the crime and disfunction that comes with blacks.
    Hopefully the apartments can be hooked up to washers and dryers which would remove one area of apartment buildings where blacks harass White fellow tenants.

    • FransSusan

      Probably some of those black, affirmative action workers are the ones living in those upscale apts.

    Sounds like a scam to me. Perhaps the building management needs some guaranteed revenue in this economy.

    Section 8 was created by Nixon to help cities fight declining property tax revenue. Blacks moved into neighborhoods, stopped paying rent, drove rent paying and home owning Whites from the neighborhood and property taxes plummeted.
    The Johnson Nixon war on poverty was still going strong. Marxist Whites worked in legal aid, as community organizers etc. So section 8 was created so that the federal goverment could use the income taxes extorted from all Americans to pay property taxes needed by the black impaired cities to keep paying for welfare, affirmative action civil service and just keep the cities operating.
    The worst blow legal aid marxists unleashed was the formation of tenant’s unions and rent strikes. That left the landlord’s with no rent money. So the feds stepped in to pay the rent.

    If by “babies” you mean the often omitted fact that 90% of these “children” are ages 15-17, then yes they’re throwing their babies at us. I sorta see this as more of an an invading army..

    The tenants moved in over the past two years as part of a push by the CHA to expand its housing voucher program so that more low-income residents can leave the city’s roughest neighborhoods and start a new life in places with low poverty and crime and close to good schools and jobs.

    This, officials assure us, will be the quickest, most efficient way to bring much needed poverty and crime to these heartbreakingly undiverse neighborhoods, while simultaneously destroying area schools and driving out jobs.

    This is Jewish driven…..so every apartment building where 90% of the tenants are Jewish should receive these tenants. The whole premise of these vouchers is to destroy white gentile neighborhoods. Whole communities in my town have been destroyed by moving in deserving blacks except these blacks are not sent to Jewish neighborhoods. So lets look at the census tracts that are predominately Jewish and let them suffer the consequence.

    Wow. invest in a good neighborhood to raise you family and hopefully gain some equity in your investment and the government insists on dismantling all of your efforts. this is very demoralizing.
