How is the shutdown affecting federally-subsidized tenants?
The National Housing Law Project has put out a report explaining that while many tenants in federally-subsidized housing are protected during the federal shutdown by long-term contracts and leases, those whose contracts or leases expire during this shutdown are vulnerable.
The report does not discuss how a loss of food stamps or other federal subsidies unrelated to housing will affect tenants' ability to pay their rent.
