No resident may be permanently involuntarily displaced. All residents must be offered the ability to remain in or, if temporary relocation is necessary, to return to the property: Residents who are not asked to relocate have a right to remain at the property. If you are temporarily relocated, you have a right to return to the property. A PHA may choose to offer residents alternative housing options, instead of returning to the property. It is fully your choice whether or not to accept an alternative housing option. You cannot be denied your right to remain in or return to a property based on any HUD re-screening criteria, income eligibility, or income targeting. The unit you return to must not leave you “underhoused,” meaning the unit must have at least the number of bedrooms you are allowed under the PHA’s rules. The new unit must also provide the same main features of your previous unit.
In some RAD conversions, the assistance is transferred to a new site. In these cases, residents have the right to reside in a unit at the new site.
