Analyze your resident population to reveal fraud, waste and abuse. With $1.2 billion lost annually due to public housing fraud and mispayments, qualified residents are missing out on assistance they could be receiving for public housing.


Public Housing Integrity empowers public housing investigative divisions to efficiently:

  • Review 100% of the individuals currently receiving public housing benefits via an automated process
  • Immediately identify individuals with significant risk indications
  • Prioritize, segment and expand fraud investigations based on output data
  • Identify unqualified residents, thereby increasing benefits available to qualified applicants

Along with reducing fraud and ensuring the right people are receiving housing, this solution also helps agencies to:

  • Boost productivity by streamlining and automating investigations
  • Reduce errors and delays associated with manual fraud review processes
  • Easily satisfy audit and compliance regulations
  • Conduct ongoing discovery with regularly scheduled file integrity scans
  • Improve the overall integrity of public housing programs

You’re being asked to do more—with less money and fewer resources. But, with the right tools, your agency can detect, investigate and mitigate fraud in public housing more effectively than ever before.


Agencies submit their list of current public housing assistance beneficiaries and LexisNexis Public Housing Integrity Scan will isolate and flag potential fraud, waste and abuse using a series of powerful indicators, including:

Identity Verification

Since many errors and abuses begin with faulty identification information, step one is always to confirm beneficiary identities.

Derogatory History

This search identifies felonies, drug convictions and other criminal activities that may not have been previously disclosed or occurred after residency began.

Asset Analysis

This investigation of wealth, assets and properties exposes misrepresentations of income.

Residency Review

Drivers’ license numbers, voter registrations, NCOA files, best addresses and other revealing data can be indicators that beneficiaries are not actually living in the provided housing, and may even be living out of jurisdiction.
