The CARES Act provides HUD with funding to make additional administrative fees to Housing Choice Voucher Programs (HCV) to prevent, prepare for, and respond to COVID-19. The permitted use for these supplemental fees include covering the costs related to retaining and supporting participating owners.

This webinar provides Public Housing Agencies (PHAs) with strategies for outreach to owners and provide them with incentives to lease to HCV families during the COVID-19 pandemic. This session will examine strategies and incentives implemented by several housing agencies along with their lessons learned. Additionally, the webinar will provide best practices for tracking and reporting the use of funding for this purpose.

This webinar is part of a webinar series that provides PHAs with best practices, recommendations, and solutions related to improving operations, program compliance, and financial management during the COVID-19 pandemic. View other trainings in the PHA Best Practices During COVID-19 Webinar Series.
