HUD has released a memorandum regarding the applicability of Section 8 requirements to HOPWA-funded rental assistance programs. The memorandum clarifies: (1) which Section 8 statutory and regulatory requirements also govern rental assistance activities under HOPWA; and (2) whether HOPWA grantees may voluntarily follow Section 8 program requirements not required by HOPWA statute and regulations in the administration of rental assistance activities. HOPWA grantees and project sponsors are strongly encouraged to review the information in the memorandum to ensure proper administration of HOPWA rental assistance activities.
