Booklet 2: How to Apply (Legal Tactics: Finding Public and Subsidized Housing)


From the introduction to the booklet:  "Finding and applying for government-funded housing is very different from renting an apartment in the private market.  There are more rules to follow, more forms to fill out, and often more frustrations along the way.  But the benefit is that government-funded housing is more affordable than housing in the private market and, often, tenants have mroe protections.

The purpose of this booklet is to tell you what to expect when you apply for government-funded housing, what your rights are as you apply, how to keep track of your search, and where you can go for help."
