THA has been receiving inquiries as to whether landlords will receive rental payments over the next few months. Though HUD is one of the government offices, which has closed, we will continue to make rental payments to landlords for February. However, we have not received notice from the government as to whether the partial shutdown, if continued, may delay future Housing Assistance Payments to our landlords. We will try to get both landlords and program participants informed of any updates as we receive them.
If anyone has concerns about the shutdown, they can contact their representatives in Washington. Everyday more and more people are being affected by the shutdown. We hope that it doesn’t go on much longer.
