Texas has lost thousands of affordable apartments as owners convert HUD-assisted housing to market-rate rents. We organize tenants to save and improve their homes. 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.
Tenants in HUD-assisted housing have a right to organize and extensive federal regulations protecting that right.
