Webinar on Protecting Tenants in RAD Communities

The National Housing Law Project (NHLP) will hold a webinar focused on protecting tenants in communities where their public housing is being converted to project-based vouchers (PBV) or Section 8 project-based rental assistance (PBRA) through the Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD). The webinar will be held on Wednesday, June 29 at 2:00 pm ET.

Tenants who live in properties converting through RAD have important rights that are critical to the success of the RAD program, such as the right to remain at the property after RAD conversion, continued rights to establish and operate a resident organization, and continued rights of a resident organization to receive resident participation funding.

The webinar will explore how tenant leaders, tenant advocates, and legal services attorneys can secure these tenant rights at each major stage of a RAD conversion. The webinar will draw upon the experiences of tenant advocates in RAD-converting communities nationwide.
