The Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Program was recently appropriated $43,439,000 for a new homeless voucher program in the Fiscal Year 2021 appropriation and $5,000,000,000 for Emergency Housing Vouchers in the American Rescue Plan of 2021. For both of these new voucher types it is necessary to have the ability to monitor and track the expenses and lease-up of these new vouchers to ensure utilization and appropriate program oversight. Without this data collection it will be impossible to recapture and reallocate unused vouchers per congressional mandate.
HUD is seeking emergency review of an Information Collection Request (ICR) under the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) for HUD’s Emergency Housing Vouchers and Housing Stability Vouchers that is required under the American Rescue Plan as enacted on March 11, 2021 and the Fiscal Year 2021 Appropriation (H.R. 133-691 (8)). Under the national impact of the coronavirus, and in compliance with the requirements of 5 CFR §1320.13, this letter requests the information collection undergo immediate processing. This action is essential to HUD’s mission of providing safe and affordable rental housing.
