From NBC Bay Area:
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development announced Friday that it's providing $2.8 million in tenant protection vouchers to public housing residents in Oakland.
HUD officials said the vouchers will help families with relocation or replacement housing from demolition or mandatory conversion of their public housing units.
In addition, they said the vouchers will provide assistance to families living in Section 8 projects for which the owner is opting out of the housing assistance payment contract.
HUD officials said the housing vouchers are awarded to public housing authorities such as the Oakland Housing Authority for relocation and replacements in connection with a HUD-approved plan to demolish or dispose of public housing developments.
