HUD has just published a brief, new Notice providing supplemental COVID-19 guidance for PHAs and owners converting properties through RAD. Housing H-2020-09/ Notice PIH-2020-26, addresses two items:

  1. The Notice describes the availability of Operating Fund CARES Act funds for public housing properties that have converted or that will convert in Calendar Year 2020 and that are still supported through public housing appropriations.
  2. Complementing FAQs that provide guidance to PHAs and owners on conducting remote resident meetings, this Notice permits PHAs to conduct one-on-one or small group resident meetings, instead of larger group meetings. PHAs and owners may find the approach permitted in this Notice to be more effective and safer approach to provide information to and consult with residents.

HUD will host a webinar on Tuesday, September 22 at 2:00 PM (EST) to review the contents of the Notice and answer questions. Register here.
