Since 1975, Cleveland Tenants Organization has aimed to preserve and
expand the supply of safe, decent, fair, affordable, and accessible rental
housing in greater Cleveland. We do this by preventing homelessness, resolving
disputes between landlords and tenants, advocating for the needs of low &
moderate-income tenants, informing citizens of their rights and duties in
rental housing, empowering tenants individually and collectively to represent themselves
and their interests, representing tenants and the interest of tenants in the
preservation and promotion of rental housing rights, combating
discrimination in housing based on race, religion, color, gender, handicap,
familial status, military status, social/economic class, and sexual orientation.

Alliance of HUD Tenants (NAHT), the leading voice of HUD tenants since 1992 and
