Title
Resolution to Amend the Administrative Plan Regarding Expedited Regulatory Waivers for the Housing Choice Voucher Program

Memorandum
The Ann Arbor Housing Commission's (AAHC) Housing Choice Voucher Administrative Plan details its policies and procedures for the management of its Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Program.

The AAHC submitted a request to HUD pursuant to Notice PIH 2021-34, "Expedited Regulatory Waivers for the Public Housing and Housing Choice Voucher (including Mainstream and Mod Rehab) Programs." The Notice provided instructions on the expedited processing of Public Housing Authority (PHA) requests to continue to use specific regulatory waivers for the Public Housing and Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) (including Mainstream and Mod Rehab) programs impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

AAHC's application was submitted by an authorized official and included AAHC's justifications for the waiver(s) to be granted. Notice PIH 2021-34 specifies that good cause justification must include: (a) why a PHA needs the waiver; (b) the impact on PHA operations or applicants if the waiver is not provided; and (c) the proposed waiver duration is limited to only the time necessary for a PHA to resume normal operations and not to exceed December 31, 2022.
