HUD to Withhold Section 8 for Units without Electricity in Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands

In a recent conference call to give updates on hurricane recovery efforts, HUD stated that in Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, it will begin withholding rental assistance (Section 8) for units without electricity. According to HUD, sites without electricity do not meet the agency's requirements for decent, safe, and sanitary housing. 

HUD is also requesting information on any vacancies in Florida properties that could provide housing for assisted families relocating from Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
