USA HUD gives housing authorities and tribes additional flexibility to focus on tenants during pandemic

WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) today is granting Public Housing Authorities (PHA), Indian Tribes, and Tribally Designated Housing Entities (TDHEs) waiver authorities and ultimate flexibilities so agency staff can focus on assisting their tenants and properties during the COVID-19 pandemic. HUD’s Office of Public and Indian Housing provides housing assistance to approximately 3.5 million families across the country.

“During difficult times, it is reasonable to expect standard operations and various aspects of ordinary life to be hindered, altered, or upended all together, but as history often has taught us, Americans – working as one – will prevail,” said Secretary Carson. “Flexible solutions such as these waivers, which were granted to HUD through the coronavirus relief bill President Trump signed into law, will help housing authorities and tribes meet the unique needs of their residents and ensure all HUD-supported properties are fully operational as we continue working together to defeat this invisible enemy.”
