A

If the RAC ceases to be funded and the tenant is unable to pay the full contract rent, the Owner is allowed to implement the lease’s eviction clause. The Owner will be required to secure a summary eviction from the state or local Court system.

If this occurs, it would be HUD’s intention to protect the tenants. HUD, for example, would seek vouchers such as tenant protection vouchers, to prevent homelessness. Note also that in their application for PRA funding, each Grantee outlined the steps they would take should PRA funds become unavailable.
