Exciting News for Residents of Alms Hill apartments!

OCTOBER 12, 2017

Federal District Judge Timothy Black issued a decision Thursday afternoon granting Legal Aid’s motion for a preliminary injunction against HUD. This ruling sets aside HUD’s attempt to end the Section 8 housing assistance contract for the Alms Hill. As a result of Legal Aid’s advocacy, 120 low-income families will not be immediately forced to move from their affordable housing. Congratulations to Legal Aid Senior Attorney Virginia Tallent for delivering a compelling oral argument on behalf of the Alms Hill residents’ association. “This victory really belongs to the residents,” Virginia stated. “They are committed to preserving their homes and the continuous improvement of the Alms.”
