Policy Update: HOME Rules Issues
During the last quarter of 2013, many Network members reported emerging issues with the new HOME rules. During the December Policy Action Committee meeting, we reviewed relevant HOME rules and changes as well as solicited feedback on challenges. View the recording and resources>
The Network has synthesized feedback from the field and hired Reno & Cavanaugh, a law firm with extensive experience on HUD programs. They will help us develop rule clarifications for practitioners and Participating Jurisdictions as well as a request for guidance from HUD on ground lease payments. Please be aware that we are prioritizing prevalent and high-impact challenges; however, some issues cannot be rectified in the short-term. Keep us informed about challenges or progress ameliorating issues with your Participating Jurisdiction by e-mailing Emily Thaden.
