As states begin to open 2021 emergency rental assistance programs to applicants, two organizations, the National Low Income Housing Council (NLIHC) and the National Council of State Housing Agencies (NCSHA) have created separate data dashboards tracking COVID-19 emergency rental assistance programs. The data is distributed by states and you can click on your state to get the latest information about emergency rental assistance available to landlords and residents. Both platforms are updated on a continuing basis and interested members can access them in the links provided below.
The NLIHC data dashboard for emergency rental assistance programs is available here.
The NCSHA data dashboard for emergency rental assistance programs is available here.
The Office of Inspector General recently published a final report, Contaminated Sites Pose Potential Health Risks to Residents at HUD Funded Properties. Congress has passed multiple statutes that require HUD housing to be decent, safe, sanitary, and in good repair and this report evaluates HUD efforts to identify and mitigate health risks to residents living in HUD-funded properties on or near contaminated sites. The OIG Final Report is available here.
