TRACS COVID-19 Notification
The U.S. Department of HUD's Office of Multifamily Housing put out a TRACS notification with information on COVID-19's impact on tenant annual and interim recertifications.
Health officials are currently taking steps to prevent the introduction and spread of COVID-19 ("Coronavirus") into communities across the United States. Housing providers, including organizations that run continuums of care and shelters, as well as the general public, can play an essential role in this effort.
Impact on Tenant Annual & Interim Recertifications
Due to the coronavirus, if a tenant is unable or unwilling to come into the office to sign an annual re-certification (AR), the owner/agent may submit the AR to the TRACS (via the CA or directly to TRACS, as appropriate) using one of the following three (3) extenuating circumstances codes:
- 1 = Medical (medical staff have quarantined the tenant)
- 2 = Late annual certification due to accommodation or extenuating circumstances.
- 10 = Other
