HUD Issues More Than $20 Million in COVID-19 Supplemental Payments

Jessica Mansfield Uncategorized

As of March 8, 2022, HUD’s Office of Multifamily Housing has issued COVID-19 Supplemental Payments (CSP) totaling more than $20 million to the owners/agents with Section 8 project based rental assistance and Section 202 contracts who applied for the fourth round of this CARES Act funding this past fall.

The COVID-19 Supplemental Payments Housing Notice made supplemental operating funds available to owners/agents of multifamily assisted properties for protecting residents and staff from COVID-19. This latest round gave owners increased flexibility when using these funds to combat COVID-19, including eligible expenses for limited types of capital investments, such as Broadband Wi-Fi infrastructure.
