HUD apartment loans questioned

A three-day series by The Columbus Dispatch explored a little-known facet of the Federal Housing Administration's mortgage insurance, which, in addition the helping first-time home buyers obtain loans, insures $56 billion in outstanding loans for developers to build and renovate apartments for people of modest means.
