San Francisco off HUD black list

June 22, 1999
Three years after the federal government was forced to step in to bring order to San Francisco's Housing Authority, Mayor Willie Brown announced the agency has been officially removed from the federal "troubled" list.
    Improvements at The City's 43 public housing developments rated a score of 84 out of 100 in the most recent review by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, a dramatic increase from the dismal 51 it earned in 1996.
