HUD Interim Rule - Extension of Time and Required Disclosures for Notification of Nonpayment of Rent

Friday, October 08, 2021

HUD published an Interim Rule in the Federal Register on October 7, 2021, applicable to those HUD properties participating in HUD’s Multifamily Section 8 project-based rental assistance, Section 202, and Section 811 assisted housing programs and HUD-subsidized public housing.  Owner/Agents must provide a 30-day notice period that includes information about federal funded emergency assistance that may be available to impacted residents.

The Final Interim Rule will be effective November 8, 2021 and will ensure that HUD-assisted tenants who are facing eviction for nonpayment of rent have notice of available emergency funds and are given the time to access that assistance.

HUD has also provided H 2021-06, Supplemental Guidance to the Interim Final Rule “Extension of Time and Required Disclosures for Notification of Nonpayment of Rent.”  The notice provides supplemental guidance including the required minimum 30-day notification period and other required actions to support families at-risk of eviction for nonpayment of rent.  Owners/Agents of Multifamily Properties should reference Emergency Rental Assistance funds.

This is only a summary, owner/agents are encouraged to thoroughly read the Interim Rule as well as Housing Notice H2021-06 in their entirety.
