Monticello, NY -  Throngs of people descended upon the Monticello Housing Authority on Evergreen Road this morning at 8 after spending the night camped out for a chance to apply for 50 available Section 8 housing slots in Sullivan County.

According to the Times Herald-Record (http://bit.ly/1FjtWIb), some 650 prospective applicants, many of them Chassidic men and women from outside the county, began lining up at 9:30 Sunday night, much to the dismay of local residents.

The rambunctious crowd reportedly made a great deal of noise, parked their vehicles in private spaces, and prevented school buses from getting through to pick up school children. “They were very disrespectful,” said Evergreen resident Elaine Williams.

For the first time in five years, both county and non-county residents were permitted to add their name to the Section 8 waiting list, but priority will be given to county residents. The Section 8 vouchers can be used anywhere in Sullivan County where landlords accept federal housing payments.

To be eligible for subsidized housing, a family of four must have a gross annual income of $31,500 or less, may not have a violence-or-drug-related offense on their record for the five prior years, cannot be lifetime registered sex offenders, or have a conviction for producing methamphetamines while on federally subsidized property.

There are other people in the world beside these Chasidim who parked in private spaces, made it hard for school children to get to school. For only 50 slots why make a Chilul Hashem?

Do you have to live in Sullivan County to receive these vouchers? If not, I hope the inspectors don't go investigating.
Aren't we better than this?

Yes. You have to live anywhere within the county. Its interesting if approved it seems that moving out of the clustered city wont be an issue.

no, we are not. look around in brooklyn, monsey, new square, we are not better than that. 30 boro park yeshivahs received 8 million dollars to give every student an internet accessible computer. A audit found only 6 computers in total were bought, for the office. The other $7,994,000? who knows!!!

 Jun 16, 2015 at 09:30 AM I camped with lots of goim in the UK Says:

Sulivan should have predicted better and hired transit cops and regular cops. And it has nothing to do yidden or goyim. I needed once a last minute visa from the UK and arrived at USA embassy too late for the days quota. Next day I went BEASHMORES HABOKER. There were lots of people before me. Some must have camped over the whole night. And I was one or o e or of two ydden. Hundreds of goym. Of course police stayed with them a whole night. Next time Sulivan can hire police. And yes if you win the section 8, you must live there

Maybe they should be sleeping outside the employment services office so they can be first in line to get a job and not have to sponge money from taxpayers. Its such a chillul hashem to see these nitwits running to take taxpayer money as if they were giving away free chulent. Stop being beggars and get a job!!!

To say the least , this episode added fuel to the already simmering fires of antisemitism. The locals were up in arms at the presence of so many Hasidim. Many locals in need wanted to know how the Hasidim knew of this and they did not.

How disturbing to see the anti-Semitism comes from within!! why don't all you self-hating jews get aid and food from the goyisha bikur cholim when you are hospitalized or get the goyisha hatzola when you need emergency help, or the goyisha RCCS when you need health insurance for a cancer patient. I'm sure they all hold jobs and are wonderful, well behaved people who never take money from the government!!!
