Publications re: Special Needs Trusts

Section 8 and its interaction with special needs trusts has always been an uneasy and uncertain relationship. There are no express regulations or laws that exempt special needs trusts from the financial tests for Section 8 availability.

Some Public Housing Agencies will treat SNT disbursements one way and others will treat them the opposite way. There has been little judicial guidance in this murky area. However, a recent case from Massachusetts DeCambre v. Brookline Housing Authority, has discussed these issues.

Allow Blaine Brockman to inform us of the current state of the law and how the DeCambre case fits within the advice we provide to our clients.
