The National Low Income Housing Coalition has published their fall issue of “Tenant Talk.” Produced by the National Low Income Housing Coalition, Tenant Talk is a semi-annual newsletter created to engage residents in housing advocacy and to highlight innovative approaches and recent victories in communities throughout the United States.
In this issue of Tenant Talk, readers will explore how resident organizations are taking action to raise the profile of the affordable housing movement and how debates about the federal budget and tax reform will impact communities. You can also sign up to receive Tenant Talk through the mail for free. To have Tenant Talk sent to you directly, fill out the form here: http://nlihc.org/library/tenanttalk/signup. Readers of this issue of Tenant Talk will also enjoy spotlight articles on resident organizing that include features on New York City’s passage of new protections for low income residents facing eviction and how the city of Seattle is making housing more accessible for citizens who have been involved with the criminal justice system. Of course, Tenant Talk will also cover key policy updates. In this edition you will find articles on the federal budget, delays in the implementation of Small Area Fair Market Rents, new projects funded through the national Housing Trust Fund, and how recent climate disasters impacted affordable homes.
