Housing Search and Advocacy Training -- in English and Spanish


Date Published: October 2006


There are many challenges in finding and securing subsidized housing: What kinds of resources are out there? Who is eligible for them? How do you overcome some of the barriers to housing, such as criminal history or bad credit? What are my rights as a tenant in Massachusetts' AHC's Housing Search and Advocacy Training addresses these questions and many more. Each section below contains detailed notes from AHC's training presentation. For each section, there are additional handouts and related materials. Please note some of this material is specific to Massachusetts, but much of it covers federal programs and universal challenges related to housing. AHC has also translated these notes into Spanish, and is in the process of converting them to plain text for persons with disabilities.
