HUD salutes Maricopa County for its managing of complex
By Michelle Ye Hee Lee The Republic | Tue Oct 22, 2013

Maricopa County was recognized by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development for turning around its management of a low-income housing complex that formerly was under federal scrutiny.
Rose Terrace Apartments, a 100-unit Avondale complex, opened in 2002 using federal low-income housing tax credits. But vacancy rates  dropped, and the complex faced financial and managerial issues.
The Housing Authority of Maricopa County and its executive director, Gloria Munoz, received the Most Valuable Partner Award, for stabilizing Rose Terrace and supporting HUD’s initiative to provide quality affordable rental homes, according to county officials.
The county agency in 2010 came under federal scrutiny for financial, procurement and human-resource management issues. Munoz was then named to lead the agency to bring it back into good standing with HUD.
The award ceremony was canceled because of the partial government shutdown.
