Federal regulators reject WC affordable-housing plan
Federal regulators have rejected Westchester County's affordable-housing plan for a third time.
After a five-month review, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) says the plan to create 750 units doesn't go far enough to try and create homes for minorities in predominately white neighborhoods.
HUD officials say they want the county to be more specific about how it will overcome obstacles when building the housing units in affluent communities.
The county now has until April 1 to update its proposal or HUD says they could end up back in court.
