An Analysis of Tenant Displacements in Virginia

Report No: 87-R36

Published in 1987

About the report:

The research reported concentrates on tenants relocated by highway construction in Virginia between July 1, 1981 to June 30, 1985. It assesses whether relocation housing payments are being used for the purpose intended by the Uniform Relocation Assistance and Real Policy Acquisition Policies Act; it investigates the adjustment patterns of tenants who have been relocated by the Virginia Department of Transportation; and it provides information that may prove useful in assessing the appropriateness of certain portions of the 1970 Uniform Act as it applies to tenants. Suggestions for improving the Uniform Act are offered in those areas related to the relocation housing payment ceiling, the number of months used to calculate the maximum rental supplement, aid for utilities increases, and housing of last resort.
