Pursue funding from state and federal programs to assist in preserving at-risk housing.
Allocate Section 8 Housing Choice Vouchers for households displaced due to the expiration of Section 8 project-based rental assistance.
Work with non-profits and landlords to provide notification of expiring units to tenants; engage tenants in the effort to preserve at-risk units, in addition to identifying affordable housing options.
Policies Policy 6.2: Allocate state and federal resources toward the preservation of housing, particularly for low income households, near employment and transit.
