New Fee Available to Assist in Implementing a Homeless Preference

Monday, November 14, 2016

The Office of Multifamily Housing Programs has been working steadily to increase the number of HUD-assisted multifamily properties with homeless preferences and previously homeless admissions. These practices are designed to help communities effectively address homelessness while providing important benefits to the owners and managers of such properties as well. In recognition of the time and effort spent by management agents to establish and administer a homeless preference, the Office has announced the availability of both a special start-up fee and an ongoing management fee based on successfully admitting homeless families.

Read the HUD Memorandum that lays out the details of the fee, or contact Carissa Janis, HUD Grant Programs Manager, with questions.
