Federal Mortgage Maturity Toolkit: A Step-by-Step Guide for Advocates


Tens of thousands of units in certain Housing and Urban Development (HUD) properties are experiencing mortgage maturity or the expiration of use restrictions or assistance. Unassisted tenants in these properties face the serious risk of a rent increase, displacement and homelessness. Congress has targeted funding for tenant protection vouchers to help address this issue but the process for accessing this funding can be complicated and confusing.

Public Counsel, in collaboration with Advancing Justice - LA, the National Housing Law Project, and Public Law Center, has created a comprehensive guide for advocates on protecting tenants facing expiring federal mortgages and the loss of affordable housing. This step-by-step guide navigates the expiring use issue and the process for accessing vouchers to protect low-income tenants and preserve precious affordable housing resources.

The toolkit is also available in Spanish and Korean. Please contact Public Counsel for translated versions of the toolkit.
