COVID-19 Statutory and Regulatory Waivers and Alternative Requirements:

In Notice PIH 2020–05, published on April 10, 2020, HUD exercised its authority under the CARES Act to establish waivers and administrative flexibilities to provide relief to Public Housing Agencies (PHAs), Indian tribes, and tribally designated housing entities (TDHEs) in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. On July 2, 2020, it published a revision Notice PIH 2020-13. In this revision to that Notice, HUD restates the waivers and alternative requirements established previously in Notice PIH 2020–05, provides additional waivers and alternative requirements, extends the periods of availability for previously established waivers and alternative requirements, and issues technical amendments to several of the previously established waivers and alternative requirements.

A summary of the waivers and alternative requirements that the Housing Authority of Thurston County has adopted is provided in “Summary of HCV Waivers and Alternative Requirements - Updated 7-2-2020.”
