The CARES Act provided additional supplemental funding to PHAs. The funding affects the Operating Fund and the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program.  For HCV both Administrative Fees and HAP are impacted.  On April 28, 2020, HUD issued PIH Notices 2020-07 (Operating Fund) and 2020-08 (HCV program.)  Further, on Friday, May 1st, HUD conducted an online session to answer questions related to these funding notices.

Affordable Housing Forward (AH Forward) is providing separate 1-hour webinars on the Operating Fund and HCV Administrative Fees notices.  Each webinar provides a summary of the information provided in the HUD Notice with an emphasis on the eligible uses and financial reporting requirements for these funds.  The last 20 minutes of each webinar will be reserved for live Questions & Answers.
