HUD to Expedite Review for Relief Request for Disaster-Area PHAs

Tuesday, October 8, 2019 - 10:30am

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) will publish a notice in the Federal Register Wednesday establishing an expedited process for the review of requests for relief from HUD requirements for public housing agencies (PHAs) in counties included in presidentially declared major disaster declarations. The notice includes which HUD requirements may be waived; which HUD requirements, if waived, may facilitate a PHA’s ability to participate in relief and recovery efforts; and a checklist for a PHA to complete and submit to take advantage of the expedited waiver request. The notice is effective Wednesday.
