This project will build capacity in eligible Project-based Section 8 HUD assisted properties in New York to increase tenants' knowledge of their rights, responsibilities, and options for preserving their homes and improving their communities.
Monique is the right person for this project because she initially grew up in HUD housing developments and understands the dynamics and challenges that are faced on an intimate and personal level. In addition, she has a passion to pursue justice, and to help those in need. Monique believes the low-income population is not highly regarded nor truly heard when they face challenges or issues that may effect their housing stability. Monique strives to be a voice for the voiceless.
