PHADA Submits Comments on Improving Access to Public Benefit Programs
On July 13, HUD issued a Request for Comments on Improving Access to Public Benefit Programs, and later extended the deadline for submission to September 14, 2023. The information collection “is seeking comments from the public regarding the burden faced when applying for or maintaining eligibility for HUD’s housing programs,” as reported in PHADA’s Breaking News. Members of the PHADA Housing Committee participated in a video call on September 7 to discuss the questions posed by the Request for Comment. Based on that feedback and PHADA’s long-time advocacy for reduced regulatory burdens, PHADA submitted comments to HUD on September 14.
