Re: Rent Reasonableness Recommendations
Date: April 28, 2022
Thank you for the opportunity to highlight NHLP and PRRAC’s concerns and recommendations related to the rent reasonableness analysis as currently conducted by PHAs. Our suggestions stem from decades of experience working with the Housing Justice Network, a vast field network of over 2,000 legal services and other housing advocates working in the field, directly representing tenants.
