State Demands Fort Worth Apartment Owner Return Rent Relief Funds After Evicting Tenant

From KERA:

In early April, the Texas Rent Relief Program sent more than $6,000 in rental assistance funds to the company that operates The Lodge at River Park to cover three months of unpaid rent and three months of future rent for Ogas.

But the money came too late to help. Ogas had already been evicted.

The 57-year-old has spent a career working in the health care industry, but was laid off just as the pandemic began. She has been unemployed since then, struggling to make ends meet with unemployment checks and extra cash from gig work.

In January, her savings exhausted, she fell behind on rent. She was waiting for the Texas Rent Relief program to process her application for a month when an eviction court judge ordered her to leave her home.

The Lodge at River Park is owned by Harbor Group International, and operated by an affiliate company called Harbor Group Management. According to their website, Harbor Group International boasts $12.7 billion in real estate assets across the nation, including 46,000 multifamily units and 4 million square feet of commercial real estate.
