The Daily Astorian is out with a special report today that says the Northwest Oregon Housing Authority knew well it was facing a financial crisis but failed to act. The result: Hundreds of poor families have lost their housing assistance. At least some are out on the street. The story by Cassandra Profita and Deeda Schroeder says “records obtained by The Daily Astorian and sources familiar with the program indicate it was NOHA’s mismanagement of federal funds that created the deficit.”
