NLIHC and NHLP Lead Letter Calling on HUD to Strengthen Eviction Protections

NLIHC and the National Housing Law Project (NHLP) led 47 housing and tenant rights organizations in a November 8 letter to HUD Secretary Marcia Fudge urging HUD to take critical steps to protect residents of HUD-assisted properties from eviction. While data is not collected on how many evictions take place in HUD-assisted properties, a survey of legal services attorneys conducted by NHLP found an alarming number of HUD evictions around the country. These households are disproportionately Black and Latino families, headed by women, older adults, and people with disabilities with extremely low incomes.
