Summary: HUD's notice (PIH Notice 2013-26) extends notice PIH-2013-03 through March 31, 2015. HUD's notice establishes temporary guidelines for public housing agencies (PHAs) in fulfilling certain Public Housing (PH) and Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program requirements during this period of decreased resources available to PHAs. These guidelines are intended to facilitate the ability of PHAs to continue, without interruption and with minimal burden, the delivery of rental assistance to eligible families in their communities.
Summary: On January 22, 2013, HUD issued PIH Notice 2013-03 (HA) titled, “Public Housing and Housing Choice Voucher Programs – Temporary Compliance Assistance.” In a major victory for NAHRO and its members, the notice: provides PHAs with temporary flexibility to use household income from the previous year rather than projecting income; permits self-certification of assets below $5,000; streamlines the income verification process for elderly and disabled families on fixed incomes; and permits PHAs to use a payment standard of up to 120 percent of Fair Market
Summary: HUD's notice (PIH Notice 2012-15) provides guidance on actions PHAs administering the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program may take to streamline administrative practices and reduce administrative costs.
