HUD has issued a fact sheet about Enhanced Vouchers (EVs) that public housing agencies will now be required to issue to tenants when owners of private HUD-assisted housing decide no longer to participate in the HUD program. The flier emphasizes tenants’ rights to remain at the property with an EV or to agree to move with a regular Housing Choice Voucher. It describes EVs and explains the three housing “conversion acts” that make a tenant eligible to receive an EV.
The flier was sought by the National Alliance of HUD Tenants (NAHT), whose tenant leaders and VISTA members reviewed HUD’s initial draft and offered recommendations, most of which were included.
