Geneva Housing Authority asks for state, federal investigation into alleged discrimination

The Geneva Housing Authority wants to see the state and federal agencies get involved in investigating complaints that have been filed against its employees in recent weeks.

Executive Director Andy Tyman has requested a federal agency to investigate allegations of discriminatory and racist behavior by a GHA employee toward several Section 8 housing voucher recipients, according to the Finger Lakes Times.


He asked the Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity Office of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development in Buffalo to conduct the investigation.

The employee involved in the alleged incidents has been placed on administrative leave. The complaints were filed in November by several Section 8 housing voucher recipients including Melinda Robinson, Breonna Spann and Shaquala Johnson.

Since that report in the FLT several others have come forward.
