Georgia Healthy Housing Project

Launched in January 2018, the Georgia Healthy Housing Project aims to explore how rental housing laws might better match health and safety laws already in effect. Low-income tenants in Georgia have limited recourse if their rental unit is not safe or unhealthy due to situations such as a rodent infestation or allergy-inducing mold. Pro bono partners will investigate the current law and case law in Georgia as well as laws in other states to recommend law and policy changes.
