HUD: No religious service in NC subsidized housing

Video

Body

GREENSBORO — The mostly elderly and disabled residents of a North Carolina subsidized housing community are questioning a federal policy that won’t allow them to use common spaces for religious activities.

The News & Record of Greensboro reported Friday that the authority that operates the subsidized Elm Tower community near Greensboro has appealed to Housing and Urban Development
Department.

The housing authority notified residents a few weeks ago that gathering for religious activities in common areas of the buildings would no longer be allowed.

A spokeswoman for the housing authority said the practice violates a federal policy that forbids organizations receiving HUD funds from engaging in religious activities.
