Office of Hearings and Appeals Decisions and Orders

Metadata Updated: July 12, 2023

The HUD Office of Hearings and Appeals (OHA) is an independent judicial office within the Office of the Secretary. This office provides information on substantive and precedential decisions that it has issued. The OHA is headed by the Chief Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) who supervises administrative judges (AJ) and the professional and administrative support staffs.

The HUD AJs conduct reviews of administrative wage garnishment cases under 24 C.F.R. § 17.170 and 31 C.F.R. § 285.11(f); and cases involving administrative offset of various federal payments due debtors who have a past-due debt obligation to the Department under 24 C.F.R. § 17.150-17.161. The AJs also decide salary offset cases for agencies outside of HUD. Decisions of the AJs in offset cases are final agency decisions. In addition, the Administrative Judges decide cases relating to limited denial of participation, debarment, and suspension under 2 C.F.R. Part 180 and 24 C.F.R. Part 26, Subpart A.

The ALJs conduct independent and impartial hearings pursuant to numerous authorizing federal statutes and agency regulations. The most frequent cases involve: allegations of violations of the Fair Housing Act (civil rights); allegations of fraud in HUD administered programs; and allegations of failure to comply with requirements of HUD subsidized programs.
