Interim Final Rule Requires Public Housing and PBRA Tenants to Receive ERA Information in 30-Day Eviction Notices

HUD published an interim final rule in the Federal Register on October 7 that applies when there is a national emergency such as the current pandemic and when federal funding is available to assist tenants in public housing and properties with project-based rental assistance (PBRA) who are facing eviction for nonpayment of rent. The interim final rule will allow HUD to require providers of public and PBRA housing to give tenants facing eviction for nonpayment of rent at least 30 days’ notice before a tenant must vacate a unit. That notice must give tenants information about the availability of federal emergency funding intended to prevent evictions. In addition, PHAs must provide all public housing tenants information about the availability of federal emergency rental assistance. HUD will publish notices providing details about the content of required tenant notifications. Comments are due by November 8, the day the interim final rule takes effect.
