HUD’s Office of Multifamily Housing Programs (Multifamily) sent an email to stakeholders on May 10 announcing a new federal subsidy program – the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) – to help HUD-assisted households pay for internet service. HUD’s media office meanwhile issued a media release on May 9 addressing ACP and indicating that HUD offices would be reaching out to public housing and Tribal housing programs, as well as Multifamily’s Project-Based Rental Assistance (PBRA) programs. The email and the release each state clearly that ACP benefits will not count as income for determining a household’s rent, nor will benefits impact a household’s eligibility for HUD assistance. Households are eligible for ACP assistance simply by living in private properties assisted with Section 8 PBRA and public housing.
