COVID-19 Supplemental Payments FAQ & Draft Request Form Now Available

The Office of Multifamily Housing Programs published Frequently Asked Questions in response to inquiries received after the release of HSG Notice 2021-05 Continued Availability of Funds for COVID-19 Supplemental Payments for Properties Receiving Project-Based Rental Assistance under the Section 8, Section 202, or Section 811 Programs. Owner/agents should take time to review this Notice to see if you qualify for reimbursement of expenses, including some internet expenses, related to COVID-19. 

The draft version of the HUD 52671-E CSP Request  is now available and includes a built-in “Minimum Expected Funding” calculator. Do not use the draft form for submission. It is available so owner/agents can begin to prepare and gather necessary information to complete the finalized form when the finalized form is published on HUDClips. 

Owner/agents can request reimbursement for allowable COVID-19 related expenses through 10/31/2021, so we expect to see a finalized version of the form posted on HUDClips by the end of the month. 

Owner/agents have until November 19, 2021 to submit requests to HUD or the assigned Contract Administrator as appropriate.  

Automated tabulation features in the form may not work in all PDF readers. To ensure full functionality, use of Adobe Reader, Chrome, or KoFax Power PDF is recommended. 

The new application period for owners of HUD Multifamily properties makes more than $180 million in supplemental operating funds available to support expenses for protecting residents and staff from COVID-19. The types of expenses that qualify for reimbursement has grown so review of the Notice and the FAQs is important. 

Please review the Notice and the FAQs to see if any of your questions have been asked and answered.
