PUBLIC HOUSING AND FAMILY

See this article which has appeared in many of today's papers:

The Housing Opportunity Program Extension ("HOPE") Act of 1996 was designed to strengthen the ability of federally subsidized housing projects to screen out and evict drug dealers and other criminals who prey on their law-abiding neighbors. Tenants in both public and private housing are subject to eviction for violations of appropriate lease terms, whether it is keeping an unlawful pet or violating any of the other reasonable terms of a lease.

In the private housing sector, it would be difficult to evict a tenant on the same grounds as set forth in the article.
