HUD Posts First Set of FAQs for Emergency Housing Vouchers

Thursday, May 20, 2021 - 12:00PM

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) today posted its first set of frequently asked questions (FAQs) for the emergency housing vouchers. Those 70,000 vouchers were recently allocated to nearly 700 public housing authorities, funded by the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021. The vouchers are for individuals and families who are homeless; at risk of homelessness; fleeing or attempting to flee domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, stalking or human trafficking; or recently homeless and for whom rental assistance will prevent the family from having a high risk of housing instability. The FAQs include a variety of topics, including eligibility, partnerships and collaborations, voucher administration, portability and reporting requirements.
