HUD/HUDSEC RIN: 2501-AD99 Publication ID: Spring 2022 
Title: Extension of Time and Required Disclosures for Notification of Nonpayment of Rent (FR-6286) 
Abstract:

To ensure tenants facing eviction for nonpayment of rent in public housing and properties with project-based rental assistance (PBRA) (for purposes of this rule, PBRA includes projects in the following programs: Section 8, Section 8 Moderate Rehabilitation, Section 202/162 Project Assistance Contract, Section 202 Project Rental Assistance Contract (PRAC), Section 811 PRAC, Section 236 Rental Housing Assistance Program and Rent Supplement) during the COVID-19 pandemic and other public health emergencies have sufficient time and information to receive emergency rent relief that may help avoid eviction, this final rule requires housing providers participating in those programs to provide both notification about the opportunity to secure emergency funding and additional time that may be used to secure funding after receiving this notice. Additionally, this final rule provides that, in such circumstances, the Secretary may extend the time period before lease termination for nonpayment of rent to 30 days after the tenant has received such information. This extension ensures adequate opportunities for tenants to overcome impediments to secure emergency funding and will prevent unnecessary evictions.
