Wednesday, March 2, 2016 - 2:00PM

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) posted on its website Tuesday for advanced review a final rule to ease regulatory requirements for a number of programs. The rule is intended to streamline requirements and provide flexibility for agencies that administer HUD’s rental assistance programs. The requirements listed include such things as tenant rental payments, rent determination processes, verification of Social Security numbers for children of applicants, frequency of utility reimbursement payments and more.

HUD said that this is a first step toward a systematic streamlining of its rental assistance programs. The rule, which was proposed in January 2015 and issued as an interim rule in September 2015, will become effective 30 days after being published in the Federal Register.
