BALTIMORE (AP) - An audit shows that 64 families living in Baltimore public housing earned more than permitted by the program’s income eligibility requirements.

The Baltimore Sun (https://bsun.md/1G5fvif ) reports that the families who exceeded the limit were over by an average of $12,500. Some families were over by a few hundred dollars, but one family was over by more than $82,000.

The data stems from an audit by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s inspector general. It reviewed eligibility for 2014 but did not provide local data. That information was later released after news organizations, including The Baltimore Sun, requested it under the Freedom of Information Act.

Public housing income caps vary by city and family size. A family of four in Baltimore must earn no more than $44,200 to qualify.
