With help from Mass Union and affiliates we were able to change the way public housing is managed.
Federal and State public housing residents need to understand their decision-making roles as advisers to their housing authority. US HUD plans to convert many federal family public housing and elderly public housing mixed income privately managed housing.
DHCD will speak about the progress in preserving public housing for low income Massachusetts residents. We are inviting federal and state public officials to speak on laws they are sponsoring for low income housing tenants.
Now is the time to come together and discover how you can voice your concerns and vote to protect your homes. We need every affiliate to participate in advocating for increasing the funding of state and federal public housing programs.
