Civil Rights Protection Plan

Chapter 5:Zero Tolerance Policy for Civil Rights Violations

The BHA has zero tolerance for civil rights violations on Authority property.  A resident’s entire household will be subject to eviction if the resident, any member of the resident’s household, any guest, or any other person under the resident’s control is determined to have violated the civil rights of any person, while on BHA property, in violation of the resident’s BHA Public Housing Lease.  The BHA’s procedures for responding to civil rights violations are set forth in the Civil Rights Protection Plan.
