Information for HUD Tenants

Texas has lost thousands of affordable apartments as owners convert HUD-assisted housing to market-rate rents. Some properties were preserved and improved through HUD’s “Mark-to-Market” program, some through Texas’ Housing Preservation Program, and others simply through determined tenant groups winning cooperation from HUD and/or owners.

From 1985 to 2017, TTU had a focus on organizing tenants in at-risk HUD-assisted housing. Below are links that may be useful to HUD tenants.

Tenants in HUD-assisted housing have a right to organize and extensive federal regulations protecting that right.
