  Last fall, Georgetowne Tenants United (GTU) won an agreement by Beacon
Properties to freeze rents for 286 moderate income families for at least a
year. At GTU’s request, Beacon also filed with HUD for a possible renewal
of the Section 8 contract for Georgetowne I, which expires on February 28,
2010. Beacon has NOT announced a final decision on Section 8 renewal.
_Beacon only has until the end of February to either renew, opt out, or
seek a short term extension._

  Renew Section 8 Now!

GTU is demanding that owner Howard Cohen renew the contracts for at least
20 years NOW.  Tenants to know that our homes will remain as affordable
