Mass Housing Training: Screening and Tenant Selection

October 11 @ 8:30 am3:30 pm


What is eligibility? What is suitability? A TSP? What are mitigating circumstances? What does HUD’s
recent guidance on criminal backgrounds mean? What can managers ask about criminal, drug and
alcohol history? What are preferences? What evidence can applicants provide to counteract a
negative tenancy history, criminal background or poor credit?
Housing providers must follow certain requirements when screening applicants while balancing fair
consideration of the individual applicant and the possible negative consequences for the
development as a whole if a person is admitted and engages in lease‐violating behavior. Good
screening of applicants results in successful tenancies – a win for all.
