As mentioned earlier on this blog, HUD has published its Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Program 2017 Funding Implementation Notice. According to HUD, the difference in how Tenant Protection Vouchers (TPVs) are allocated between 2017 and prior years is that in 2017–for Public Housing TPV actions–the number of TPVs that will be awarded will be considered at the time of the Special Applications Center (SAC) approval of the demolition or disposition application. This is in contrast to prior years, where HUD considered the number of vouchers to be awarded at the time of the TPV funding application to HUD.
Additionally, the Housing Voucher Financial Management Division has sent out an email discussing a survey on anticipated needs for tenant protection action for July to December of 2017. HUD notes that this data collection is important for “new increment leasing projections and needs for CY 2017 and HAP renewal for 2018 and 2019.” Questions about the survey can be directed to PIH_Conversion_Actions@hud.gov. The survey is due by August 24, 2017 at 5 pm ET.
