From the introduction:  "This Guide is designed for advocates representing individuals with a criminal record who are seeking access to federally assisted housing programs. The Guide describes the current state of the law with respect to the admission process in general and, more specifi cally, as it relates to individuals with criminal records who have also been incarcerated; the barriers these individuals face as they seek housing; the process by which to challenge a denial; and suggestions as to how local advocates who are working with or representing individuals with criminal  records may begin to change local policies and practices."
