  1. Issuance of fraudulent purchase orders (PO) being sent from what appears to be a legitimate DGS employee and email address.
  2. Issuance of a spoof email requesting vendors validate contact details to ensure they do not miss bidding opportunities.

What are Some Public Housing Programs for People with Disabilities – Housing for People with Disabilities

Housing for people with disabilities can be found, but it takes some doing. Disabled individuals can get help from housing and rental programs run by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The housing for people with disabilities programs that are funded by the government includes Section 811 and Tenant Based Rent Assistance. Help can also be provided by Section 8 Housing Choice Vouchers.

With the Section 811 program, housing for people with disabilities can be offered along with rent assistance. The federal government created this resource to help people with disabilities live in safe, secure, and affordable housing.
