This investigation revealed that a lot of government housing near and in college towns is occupied by students. The HUD qualifications do not account for parents' income, so students often meet the income requirements and get away with renting an apartment for almost no money, while poor people who actually need the housing are put on waiting lists. Sometimes the students are athletes and already receive scholarships and financial aid. This story shares the perspective of the students, the tenants and the HUD officials.
