CPD Memo: Availability of Waivers and Suspensions of the HOME Program Requirements in Response to COVID-19 Pandemic
Date Published: April 2020
This memorandum provides guidance and the necessary statutory suspensions and regulatory waivers to enable HOME Participating Jurisdictions (PJs) affected by the COVID-19 pandemic to use HOME funds to address immediate housing needs and to help prevent spread of the virus. The memorandum is divided into two sections. Section I addresses PJs located in areas covered by a major disaster declaration made under Title IV of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act (Stafford Act). Section II describes regulatory waivers available to all HOME PJs, not just those included in a major disaster declaration. Provisions that are not specifically suspended or waived remain in full effect.
Waivers and Suspensions of the HOME Program Requirements Details
Community Planning and Development (CPD) Field Offices shall inform PJs of the availability of these suspensions and waivers. A PJ that intends to implement the HOME statutory suspensions and/or regulatory waivers, must send written notification via email to the CPD Division in its local HUD Field Office before it implements the waiver or suspension. This written notification must identify which suspensions and/or waivers the PJ plans to use.
HUD has established email addresses by CPD Field Office that recipients/PJs should use to direct all suspension and waiver requests.
