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

For owners who have not yet received an approval or denial notification, they can expect to receive an email communication from HUD within the next week.
- This may be a funding approval notification, notification of denial, or notification that the funding request is still being processed.
- The funding approval process for a limited number of CSP requests may extend into April.
