BROADCAST EMAIL – Regulatory Update

October 6, 2017

Today, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) published a Notice in the Federal Register entitled, “Relief From HUD Requirements Available to PHAs To Assist With Recovery and Relief Efforts on Behalf of Families Affected by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Maria and Future Natural Disasters Where Major Disaster Declarations Might Be Issued in 2017.” The Notice provides information on an expedited process for reviewing requests for relief from several HUD requirements for public housing agencies (PHAs) and tribes or tribally designated housing entities (THDEs) in Texas, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, Florida, and Georgia. PHAs and tribes/TDHEs in those areas that were affected by hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria, may request waivers of HUD requirements and receive expedited review of their requests for the remainder of 2017.
