Update on Status of PBCA Re-bid
On August 6, 2013, HUD issued award letters for the 43 PBCA contracts solicited under a Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA). SHCC did not receive either Texas or Arkansas in the award. However, SHCC together with six other parties have an appeal pending at the United States Court of Appeals (the Court), challenging the legality of the NOFA. On August 27, 2013, the Court granted the Plaintiff-Appellants' motion for a stay pending appeal. Following this ruling, HUD announced that it would not execute the new ACCs until the appeal is resolved. Further, no transition activities should occur until further notice. HUD has stated that additional information will be provided as soon as it is available.
SHCC remains the PBCA in Texas and Arkansas. Our current contract runs until June 30, 2014. We will update our website with any additional developments.
