A recently published notice from HUD's Office of Public and Indian Housing (PIH) on waiving and establishing alternative requirements for statutory and regulatory requirements for the Public Housing program, Housing Choice Voucher program, Indian Housing Block Grant IHBG program, and Indian Community Development Block Grant program:
 
These waivers seek to provide administrative flexibilities and relief to public housing agencies (PHAs), Indian tribes, and tribally designated housing entities in response to the COVID-19 national emergency. HUD strongly encourages PHAs to utilize any and all waivers and alternative requirements as necessary to keep public housing and Housing Choice Voucher programs operational to the extent practicable. This notice also provides information on additional actions HUD is taking, including the temporary suspension of the Public Housing Assessment System and the Section Eight Management Assessment Program.
