Training Opportunity: Jun 28, 2022, 2:00pm – 3:30pm EDT. Crime-Free Programs and Nuisance Property Ordinances: Their Impact on Survivors and Other Protected Groups.
A growing number of local governments have enacted some form of a crime-free housing program and/or nuisance property ordinance. These laws and programs can have profound and long-lasting harm on renters, in particular survivors of violence and other protected classes. Come learn how these laws may run afoul of the law, deter survivors of violence and others from seeking help, and generally undermine public safety and efforts within a community to increase racial equity.
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (“HUD”) and the U.S. Department of Justice (“DOJ”) will discuss their efforts to combat these laws and programs and describe individuals or programs harmed by these laws or programs may be able to seek help. We will also discuss how grantees in jurisdictions with these laws and programs can protect survivors and other protected groups from harm by working with landlords to prevent evictions related to these laws and programs.
