May 3, 2017: NHLP Works with Local Advocates to Mitigate the Effects of Voucher Funding Shortfalls

On May 1, 2017, Congress signed a bill to finalize federal funding for the remainder of 2017. The bill provides $18.36 billion to renew funding for Housing Choice Vouchers. While this is an increase from last year, it falls short of the funding required to renew all vouchers currently in use. The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities estimates a loss of about 50,000 vouchers nationwide. As a result, some PHAs are receiving notice from HUD to cease issuing turnover vouchers immediately and to rescind all vouchers provided to applicants but not yet in use because the PHA will experience a budget shortfall. Even PHAs not identified by HUD as certain to have funding issues for the remainder of the year are taking immediate measures to reduce spending. NHLP is providing technical assistance to advocates nationwide so they can protect tenants from the harmful effects of a budget shortfall and advocate with their local PHA to take cost-saving steps that are least harmful to tenants.
