HUD’s Office of Public and Indian Housing (PIH) sent an email to public housing agency (PHA) executive directors on February 1 describing Housing Choice Voucher renewal and public housing Operating Fund availability for the coming months under the continuing resolution set to expire on February 15.
For Housing Choice Vouchers, PIH indicated that March and April Housing Assistance Payment (HAP) renewal funding disbursements will be made on time at a 99% proration rate. Full funding for administrative fee payments will be made available for March and April. PHAs with HUD-held reserves will still be able to request additional funding from those reserves if the HUD disbursement is not sufficient to cover a PHA’s HAP through April.
PIH will be providing public housing Operating Funds at an 88% proration rate for March, April, and May.
