The subpoena demanded a list of all tenants living in the school's faculty housing, sources said.
UTA is a substantial enterprise, the main school system for the Satmar Hasidic community, with 8,000 students in 17 buildings and an annual budget of $35 million.
It also operates tax-exempt housing units that are supposed to be reserved for students, faculty and rabbis.
Glanz took up residence in the UTA property at 85 Ross St. in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn.
He is charged with using federal Section 8 vouchers obtained under the name of his brother, Menashe, to pay the rent.
The vouchers are reserved for the poor and have strict income caps.
Both Glanzes were once employed by UTA. But they no longer are, raising questions about why Leib Glanz wasn't booted from the apartment after he was off the UTA payroll.
The UTA subpoena could be broadened to encompass a wider probe of the school and its housing practices by the city's Department of Investigation, the sources said.
UTA's lawyer declined comment, as did DOI spokeswoman Diane Struzzi.
