TENANT ORGANIZING

Community organizers work with groups of low-income tenants to obtain repairs and improve housing conditions. Typical issues include threatened or actual utility shut-offs, repairs, building security, rental rates, lease terms, demolition or conversion of affordable housing units and other subsidized housing rights. Organizers meet with resident groups and assist with the development of a comprehensive strategy to resolve problems, including negotiating disputes with building owners and governmental agencies as well as providing support for court action to obtain repairs.
