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.
