Why You Should Attend
This substantive training provides more in-depth coverage of select topics in the federal housing programs. The half-day training is designed for advocates with some housing experience, but practitioners at all experience levels should be able to benefit from this training. The panelists are noted experts in housing law who will cover two critically important issues – the preservation of existing federally assisted housing in this country and the rights of federally assisted housing tenants to organize in an effort to preserve their housing.
What You Will Learn
- Preserving Federally-Assisted Housing in the public housing, project-based Section 8, and Low-Income Housing Tax Credit program
- The challenges to tenants and long-term affordability in the Rental Assistance Demonstration program.
- The rights of tenants to organize in federally assisted housing
Who Should Attend
Practitioners who want to gain a deeper understanding of subsidized housing, as well as housing attorneys looking for tools to represent their clients in federally-subsidized housing and help them to preserve their housing and communities and organize other tenants towards that effort. The sessions will address issues pertinent to those with limited federally-subsidized housing practice as well as experienced practitioners.
