RHIIP Listserv Posting #443 -- NEW NOTICE: Funds for COVID-19 Supplemental Payments
NEW NOTICE: Funds for COVID-19 Supplemental Payments
On July 23, 2020, the Office of Housing published a Housing Notice, H-2020-08 “Availability of Funds for COVID-19 Supplemental Payments (CSPs) for Properties Receiving Project-Based Rental Assistance under the Section 8, Section 202, or Section 811 Programs.”
HUD is making available CARES Act funds to offset property expenditures to combat the effects of COVID-19. This notice provides a method for owners to receive payments beyond the amounts available under the terms of their current rental assistance contracts.
The supplemental payments may cover additional cleaning and disinfecting, additional staff, face coverings, and other expenses to help keep properties safe for residents. The Housing Notice allows owners to submit payment requests for expenses incurred between March 27, 2020 and July 31, 2020. Requests are due to HUD or the Contract Administrator by August 5, 2020. A draft of the CSP Request Form HUD 52671-E is available for owner use, with final approval by OMB pending.
Property owners and management agents should contact their assigned HUD Account Executive or Contract Administrator with any questions about property eligibility for a CSP. Please visit the Multifamily home page for the most recent Q&A and other guidance about the COVID-19 pandemic.
