The Future of Tenants’ Rights in Assisted Housing Under a Reagan Voucher Plan: An Analysis of Section 8 Existing Housing Cases

Abstract

After a brief synopsis of assisted housing programs, including the proposed voucher scheme, this Article engages in a two-part analysis of the future of tenants' rights in assisted housing. First, it examines the cases involving admissions and evictions in the Section 8 existing housing program, and relates those cases to decisions involving the earlier housing production programs. The article then applies the legal principles developed in the Section 8 existing housing cases to the Reagan administration's proposed housing voucher plan.
