Require Households to Inform You of Long Absences
Lengthy unexplained household absences from your site can be frustrating and may even violate HUD lease provisions that require assisted households to use their units as their primary residences. You may have households that leave the site for months at a time during particular seasons. Or you may have a tenant serving in the armed forces who has been deployed for a lengthy amount of time. Regardless of the reason for extended absences, you need to be consistent in how you deal with long absences when it comes to your affordable housing site.
