As we know, public housing funding for April is at a 73% proration level. HUD plans to issue a second funding to bring the April proration level up to 79%.
Many PHAs have a requirement for short- or long-term operational support to ensure the effective delivery of services for their HCV and public housing programs.
Project-based vouchers are increasingly popular at housing authorities as an incentive to draw rental property owners into the program, as well as provide a housing subsidy to service providers that work with special needs populations such as homeless persons, disabled persons, or those in substance abuse recovery.
The goal of a PHA is to provide decent, safe, and sanitary housing to its clients. In doing so, the agency must align with HUD regulations and be certain that locally administered programs are efficient and effective.
