Action Item for This Week: The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) proposed a new rule that could lead to the eviction of over 100,000 people from HUD-assisted housing, including 11,000 people in the City of Los Angeles.
The proposed rule would prohibit “mixed-status” families from living in public housing and Section 8 programs. Mixed-status families are households that include both members who are eligible and ineligible for housing assistance based on their immigration status. HUD’s proposed rule would force families of mixed immigration status to break up to receive housing assistance, to forego the assistance altogether, or face termination from the programs.
Envisioning a Positive Future for Los Angeles. Jul 18 Thu 6:30 pm, UCLA. Hear from LA Councilmember Mike Bonin and Culver City Mayor Meghan Sahli-Wells. The more people we turn out, the bigger an impression it’ll make on these elected officials. Numbers = power!
