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, 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 stage of a RAD conversion. The webinar will draw upon the experiences of tenant advocates in RAD-converting communities nationwide.
