My mom and I live in public housing that charges rent based on income. The landlord/manager who oversees the tenants told my mom if I move out that she will have to leave the program because they will not have a unit for her. Can they do this to her? Rent is too expensive for her to pay they are basically threatening to make her homeless.
Without knowing the full terms of the program under which you are renting, it is impossible to provide you with the correct advice. With that said, however, it sounds like the manager is saying something to the effect of your mother not being able to qualify to rent there. If that is the case, the program may terminate the tenancy with an appropriate notice of termination for an applicable reason (or not, depending on the program terms). Not being able to afford rent is not a reason to stay. You should help your mother find alternative housing.
