Tenant Resource Network Program

The purpose of the Tenant Network Resource (TRN) Program is to make grants to applicant organizations to assist, inform, educate and engage tenants of eligible project-based Section 8-assisted properties regarding their rights, responsibilities and options in response to a property owner?s filing a notice
of Opt-Out or mortgage prepayment, in response to a second consecutive ?Below 60? score of the property from the HUD Real Estate Assessment Center (REAC), or in anticipation of a maturing mortgage on the property within 24 months of publication of this notice.
