Change in HUD Regulations

The Ocala Housing Authority will give written notice of 30 calendar days for nonpayment of rent. On October 7, 2021, HUD published in the Federal Register an Interim Final Rule titled “Extension of Time and Required Disclosures for Notification of Nonpayment of rent”. This Interim Final Rule amends HUD regulations to require that during a national emergency PHAs administering a public housing program must provide no less than 30 days advanced notification of lease termination due to nonpayment of rent.
