HUD’s Office of Public and Indian Housing (PIH) posted “Example Charts for Tracking Public Housing and HCV CARES Act Waivers and Alternative Requirements” on April 23. Building on PIH Notice PIH 2020-05 dated April 10, which describes waivers of statutory and regulatory requirements that public housing agencies (PHAs) may choose to use (see Memo, 4/13), the example charts summarize waivers authorized under PIH Notice 2020-05 and the period of availability for each. These charts are for reference only and do not collect information. PIH is seeking approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), as required by the “Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995,” for a form if and when PIH determines it will collect this information from PHAs.
Notice PIH 2020-05 requires PHAs to keep written documentation on the waivers they use, as well as the effective dates of the waivers. To fulfill these requirements, PHAs may but are not required to use the last two columns of the chart to record this information.
