Kenner Housing Authority Director Resigns

The Director of the embattled Kenner Housing Authority, Claudette Raphael, has resigned effective March 1st.

The KHA, which manages Section 8 housing in Kenner, has been under increasing scrutiny from HUD.

In a series of reports in November, Fox 8 disclosed the allegations of financial mismanagement and numerous other questionable activities. HUD moved the Housing Authority into "troubled" status and has been investigating the Authority for months to determine whether corrective action is required or whether the KHA should be dissolved.
