Woman’s housing saved by her HPRP legal team

After a Baltimore woman was forced to relocate quickly when her housing unit became uninhabitable due to severe leaks, she was abruptly terminated from the Shelter Plus Care housing subsidy program in a notice that alleged her relocation was an unauthorized move.

Yet, by all appearances, all parties were aware of—and approved of—the relocation. HPRP attorneys sent a demand letter challenging the legal and factual bases for the termination.

After months of ongoing communication and negotiations, the housing program dropped the termination. The client moved into a new unit the week before Christmas—and is happy with her new unit (and happy that her housing subsidy is secure).
