New Section 8 Renewal Policy Guide Posted

On June 30, 2017, the Department of Housing and Urban Development issued the new Section 8 Renewal Policy Guide.  


The Transmittal Cover Sheet provides a summary of the changes with links to the changes in the document.  To make Section 8 policy more effective and accessible for HUD's partners, this Guide provides comprehensive guidance for renewing expiring Section 8 HAP contracts. It incorporates the procedures contained in previously published Section 8 Housing Notices, along with a number of other changes.

The new Guide is posted on HUD's Section 8 Renewal Policy Guide web site along with other helpful documents and tools.  

This guidance will apply to renewal and amend rent packages received by the Department (or post-marked) on or after July 28, 2017.
