NHLP’s HUD Housing Programs: Tenants’ Rights (universally known as “the Green Book”), is considered as the bible of HUD tenants’ rights by housing advocates throughout the country.

HUD Housing Programs: Tenants’ Rights is authored by NHLP’s attorneys, widely recognized as the singular authorities on the laws governing HUD’s housing programs. The Green Book is the product of more than four decades of NHLP’s legal expertise on HUD housing law, decades of successful impact litigation that has established and defined the rights of federally assisted tenants, and a comprehensive understanding of intricate federal housing policy.

“The Green Book is absolutely essential for anyone who is teaching, litigating, advocating, or thinking about low income housing issues.  Every law school clinic and library must have at least one copy.”
Florence Wagman Roisman

If you represent tenants in any of the HUD housing programs, you must have the Green Book in your office. ..I've won many cases thanks to the information in the Green Book and I always keep a copy on my desk.

"The Green Book is indispensable to high quality representation of clients in federal housing programs. It is an absolute requirement for those of us with too many clients and not enough hours in the day. The information in the Green Book will literally win your client's case."

“The Green Book belongs in every housing lawyer’s library.  It is the go-to resource for housing questions, and we’re incredibly fortunate to have so much information available in one collection.”
Julie Becker

“Executive Directors in every legal services program need to make sure that they have at least one copy of the Green Book in their offices.  Whether their staff includes housing specialists, general advocates, or relies on pro bono volunteers, the Green Book is the essential road map needed to navigate the complex maze of federal housing and community development programs that have evolved over many decades.”
