The COVID-19 spread to the U.S. impacted the ability of Public Housing Authorities to provide services to the households they serve. The Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act provides the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) with authority to waive and/or establish alternative requirements for numerous statutory and regulatory requirements for the Housing Choice Voucher program.  The Arlington Housing Authority has been approved to waive certain requirements.
