In 1985 NLSLA challenged the Los Angeles City and County Authorities’ practice of unilaterally terminating families’ housing subsidies without due process, forcing families to move out of safe housing, disrupting children’s education, and often leaving people homeless. NLSLA’s successful lawsuit, Blackwell v. Lund, led to a change in federal regulations that stopped Housing Authorities from terminating, denying or delaying Section 8 rent subsidy benefits without good cause, notice and a hearing.
