  • HUD clarifies, encourages owner support of tenant organizing

    August 29, 2023

    In a reminder to affordable housing providers sent on Aug. 14, HUD’s Multifamily Housing team emphasized existing rules around tenant organizing. Specifically, HUD reiterated that affordable housing communities subsidized through project-based Section 8, Section 202, and other HUD rental assistance programs are required to make community spaces available for meetings when requested by tenant organizations. Additional rules for tenant organizing in HUD-assisted Multifamily Housing, as well as information about a recent HUD funding opportunity to support capacity building of tenant organizations, is available here.
