HUD’s Office of Public and Indian Housing (PIH) posted its fifth update to COVID-19 FAQs for Public Housing Agencies on July 16. This version of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) is a major reorganization of the previous update from May 29 (see Memo, 6/8), clustering FAQs in well-organized categories linked to an expanded table of contents. The update includes 80 new and 25 updated FAQs.
Many of the updated FAQs cite Notice PIH 2020-13 REV1 (see Memo, 7/13), which updated the April 10 “mega waiver” Notice PIH 2020-05 (see Memo, 4/13). A number of the FAQs include recommendations made by PIH in its Eviction Prevention and Stability Toolkit (see Memo, 7/13). Of particular note are eight new FAQs under “Resident Health: Domestic Violence” (page 46) and 16 new FAQs under “Operational Concerns: Remote Video Inspections, RVI” (page 39).
