If an owner ultimately chooses to opt-out of the Section 8 contract and has satisfied the relevant requirements, the Owner may request to opt-out of the Section 8 program by providing AHSC the Contract Renewal Request Form and electing Option 6. Owners should be aware of their obligation to honor the right of residents to remain.
Owners should review their Section 8 HAP contract or Use Agreement to see if there are restrictions or agreements that would prohibit the owner from opting-out. Review Section 8 Contract Renewal Policy Handbook for further details.
Owners must provide an acceptable one-year notification to the tenants and AHSC of their intent to opt-out of the Section 8 project-based contract. The letter must state that the owner will honor the right of residents to remain. Refer to the Section 8 Contract Renewal Policy Handbook for further details and requirements.
