Kingsport Housing & Redevelopment Authority (KHRA) has been advised by the National Association of Housing & Redevelopment Officials (NAHRO) that the passage of a short-term spending bill by Congress and the President should provide funding to the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) to cover housing authority expenses and those of the Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8) program through March and April.
If the government had not reopened before the end of February, funding for the public housing operating fund and the Housing Choice Voucher program would have stopped.
“While reopening the government is a positive step, the political situation in Washington is still contentious and it is possible another shutdown will happen at the end of the current CR (Continuing Resolution),” states NAHRO.
The current Continuing Resolution ends February 15.
KHRA will continue to provide updates as they become available.
