On June 16, 2016, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) published a rule amending CoC Program regulations to allow program participants receiving CoC tenant-based rental assistance (TBRA) to choose housing outside of the CoC’s geographic area, subject to certain conditions. HUD will be delivering regional trainings to recipients and subrecipients to discuss this rule, including the requirements and conditions that must be met to support a household’s choice of housing outside of the CoC’s geographic area. These trainings will also discuss new exemptions of regulatory requirements to recipients and subrecipients that serve program participants who are assisted with TBRA and are fleeing imminent threat of harm from domestic violence. In addition, these webinars will allow time for participant Q&A with HUD Headquarters’ staff.
Participants will learn:
- How the rule expands housing choice and increases a household’s ability to obtain and maintain safe and desired housing
- The responsibilities of the recipient or subrecipient in complying with all CoC Program requirements outside of the CoC’s geographic area
