Understanding Your Lease (A Tenant's Resource Packet for Harrisburg Housing Authority Residents). Final Report.
Tri-County Opportunities Industrialization Center, Inc., Harrisburg, PA.
This report describes a project to develop instructional materials for the Harrisburg Housing Authority that would enable tenants to understand more clearly the terms of their lease agreements. Project products were designed for tenants, many of whom were students in adult basic education classes, and for housing authority personnel who participate in tenant association meetings. Procedures included the following: identifying problem areas between tenants and the public housing authority related to the understanding of the lease; developing instructional activities and materials that would clarify and explain identified problem areas; field test materials and curriculum; and publish a final curriculum and resource materials. The 13-page report is accompanied by a trainer's handbook for facilitating group activities. The handbook is divided into five sections. Section 1, Facilitator's Notes, provides these materials for each of the 18 sections of the lease that are covered: objective, points to remember, discussion topics, questions, and activity. Section 2, Participant's Reference Sheets, contains handouts on each topic. Section 3, Response Sheet, allows participants to write down answers to questions posed by the group facilitator. Section 4 contains the current lease agreement. Section 5, Pre-Post Activity Assessment, is a 30-question optional assessment. (YLB)
