Grants are available for non-profit organizations to better enable tenants to take advantage of their rights to receive subsidies for housing costs. The funding is also available to help preserve the housing projects that receive financial assistance from Federal agencies. The program has two purposes. One goal of the program is tenant empowerment. HUD will make competitive awards to applicant organizations to assist, inform, educate and engage tenants of eligible project-based Section 8 Housing Assistance Payment (HAP) contract-assisted properties regarding their rights, responsibilities and options in response to a property owner’s filing a notice of Opt-Out or mortgage prepayment, a second consecutive “Below 60” physical inspection score (not yet under abatement), or a mortgage maturing within 24 months of publication of this notice.
The second purpose of the program is preservation of HUD-assisted affordable housing. The program aims to engage tenants in efforts to preserve eligible properties as affordable housing. TRN is specifically targeting Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs) with the largest numbers of TRN-eligible units, and may provide additional award funds to applicants working in these communities that are disproportionately impacted by the potential loss of assisted housing.
