As previously reported in Memo on 10/30, HUD had been weighing whether it could legally provide Section 8 subsidy payments to owners of HUD-assisted properties in Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands that lacked electricity and running water because the properties could not be considered decent, safe, and sanitary, even though owners were attempting to secure electricity. HUD’s Office of Multifamily Housing Programs had a call on October 31, updating partners on their disaster recovery efforts, during which HUD indicated that owners of HUD-assisted multifamily properties in Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands should continue to receive vouchers for November. HUD will continue to authorize payments as long as the certification for the physical condition of the property is attached.
