A

Yes, a recipient/subrecipient who is a public housing agency (PHA) may provide rental assistance on behalf of program participants who are residing in PHA-owned units. However, the rent reasonableness determinations and housing quality inspections must be conducted by an entity that is not the PHA. It must also be established that the PHA-owned units assisted with rental assistance are not also being assisted with any other duplicative federal, State, or local housing program as determined by HUD.
