Proposed Rule to Change the Section 8 Tenant-Based Voucher and Section 8 Project-Based Voucher Programs under HERA

Summary:  HUD’s proposed rule follows the November 24, 2008, notice for the purpose of establishing, in regulation, the reforms made to HERA and to make other related regulatory changes. HUD’s proposed rule would make conforming changes to the regulations of the Section 8 Tenant-Based Voucher and Section 8 Project-Based Voucher programs to reflect the self-executing provisions of HERA, and would also amend the regulations required to implement those statutory provisions of HERA that are not self-implementing.
