HUD Notice Advises Public of Expedited Process for Waivers, Flexibilities in Presidentially Declared Disaster Areas Through End of 2023

Tuesday, January 4, 2022 - 8:45am

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) will publish in Wednesday’s Federal Register two notices advising the public of HUD’s expedited process for waivers and flexibilities from regulatory and administrative requirements during presidentially declared disasters (PDDs) for 2022 and 2023. HUD published a notice for public housing authorities in PDD areas and another notice for Indian Housing Block Grant, Indian Community Development Block Grant and Native Hawaiian Housing Block Grant grantees in PDD areas. The notices list the HUD requirements that may be waived or granted flexibility on an expedited basis. Waivers and flexibilities are effective from Jan. 1, 2022, through Dec. 31, 2023.

Housing development challenges in disaster areas will be discussed at the virtual Novogradac 2022 Affordable Housing Developers Conference, Jan. 13-14.
