National Alliance of HUD Tenants Protest Outside Landlord Lobbyist Office to Demand Support for Bill Providing Information on How Their HUD Buildings Are Being Operated
 
 

The Coalition for Economic Survival is a member of The National Alliance of HUD Tenants (NAHT). NAHT is the leading national organization of HUD tenants and organizations fighting to preserve HUD subsidized housing and ensure HUD tenants their rights.

Last June, NAHT tenant leaders  were in Washington, D.C. for their annual conference when they led a demonstration against a lobbyist firm, the National Leased Housing Association (NLHA), which represents landlords and managers of HUD subsidized properties.  NLHA is currently fighting a bill, H.R. 4868, which among other allowances would give tenants of HUD subsidized properties the right to view documentation regarding their building. Even though NAHT has repeatedly said that it only wants to see how taxpayer money is being used in the buildings, the landlords are fighting the release of the information, claiming that it violates their privacy.  Tenants are not allowed to know who their landlord is, even when the landlord has the tenants' social security numbers, work history, and other personal information.
