A coalition of more than 70 national organizations tell the Administration & Congress that people with the lowest incomes will be hit hardest if the shutdown continues.
You may recall that we reported on December 28 that HUD would be making HCV and Operating Fund payments for January. Given the protracted negotiations over the partial government shutdown, CLPHA inquired yesterday about February's payment as well. PIH leadership confirmed that HUD has enough money to make HCV and Operating Fund payments for February, and will bring in HUD staff to make the payments on time.
On December 27, HUD again circumvented regulatory and process requirements to make changes to the Annual Contributions Contract (ACC). Through a Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) notice, HUD published revisions to the ACC, referred to as “the New ACC,” and provided for a 60-day comment period.
CLPHA was informed today that HUD will be publishing its required Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) notices for its revised Annual Contributions Contract (ACC) and the Moving to Work ACC for the expansion agencies on Thursday, December 27, in the Federal Register for a 60-day comment period.
