Governor Lamont has issued Executive Order No. 7GGG, which provides for the following:
Authorization for Temporary Rental Housing Program
Effective immediately and for six months from the date of this order, unless earlier modified or extended, Sections 8-347, 8-347a and 8-348 of the Connecticut General Statutes and any associated regulations are modified to authorize the Commissioner of the Connecticut Department of Housing to modify, waive or exempt certain provisions contained therein only to the extent necessary to create and administer a temporary program of rental housing assistance to benefit tenants who meet certain criteria to be established by the Commissioner, in consultation with the Secretary of the Office of Policy and Management and Office of the Governor. Modifications and waivers to the rent bank program requirements, as well as fiscal information about the temporary program and assistance provided, shall be reported to the Office of Policy and Management and the Office of the Governor not later than the final Thursday of each month, beginning in August 2020, for the duration of the temporary relief program.
HUD releases PIH Waiver- 2020-13. On July 2, HUD released Notice PIH 2020-13 which provides relief to PHAs in response to the COVID-19 pandemic by extending current waivers and releasing new waivers to help ease administrative burden and provide safe, secure housing to low-income individuals. The CARES Act provided broad authority to HUD to provide waivers to PHAs to help them manage their properties and keep their residents safe during the pandemic. HUD released the first round of waivers on April 10. Through critical member feedback, NAHRO has consistently updated HUD on the need for additional waivers and flexibilities throughout the pandemic so that PHAs can better serve their residents and keep their staff safe.
