The webinar featured HUD staff from these program areas who covered HUD's latest guidance, including new flexibilities that allow public housing agencies (PHAs) to use operating funds to cover in-unit internet service costs for residents. There was an opportunity for participants to ask questions about any activities they may be interested in funding through these sources.
