In response to PHADA’s request, the deadline for most categories of voucher set-aside funding has been extended to July 15. In its
initial notice, the Department set deadlines of May 15 for five of the categories for which HAs can request additional funding including portability, project-based vouchers, and lower-than-average leasing. This extension was requested as many agencies were in the midst of planning for and responding to COVID-19 in their communities. Given the escalating per-unit-costs at many agencies, the opportunity to secure a portion of this set-aside funding is more critical than usual. Additional details on set-aside funding opportunities can be found in the April 15 issue of the Advocate, available here.
