HUD Releases Contingency Plan for Government Shutdown
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development today released its contingency plan for a possible federal government shutdown. The plan lists how many employees would be retained under the plan and what they would do. The plan dictates that monthly subsidy programs such as the housing choice voucher program, public housing operating subsidies and multifamily assistance contracts continue to operate as long as they have funding. The government is currently funded through Nov. 21.
