Organizations mentioned/involved: Lone Star Legal Aid
Lone Star Legal Aid filed the lawsuit Friday against the Department of Housing and Urban Development and the Texas General Land Office. The GLO administers the federal funds.
“Especially in the Houston area, a majority of the Houston renters are minority households,” said Ashea Jones, a staff attorney with Lone Star Legal Aid. “And under the current regulations there are no programs that give direct assistance to the renter households.”
Neither HUD nor the GLO have responded to requests for comment.
