What is it?

H.R. 2790 would grant private nonprofits the authority to offer permanent housing rental assistance. 


If implemented, nonprofits would join the ranks of state and local governments and public housing agencies that can offer housing rental assistance. This new authorization would be granted through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) program, Continuum of Care (CoC). 


CoC offers funding for efforts to quickly house homeless individuals and families to minimize trauma and dislocation.  promotes access to and effective utilization of mainstream programs; and optimizes self-sufficiency among individuals and families experiencing homelessness.

Impact

People who are seeking long-term rental assistance, non profits that would like to offer that service under the Continuum of Care Program, local and State governments and public housing agencies, and HUD.

Cost

A CBO cost estimate is unavailable.

More Information

Of Note: 

In 2013, new CoC regulations were outlined by HUD stating that only government entities would be allowed to offer rental assistance. The exclusion of nonprofits in rental assistance activities was the motivation behind H.R. 2790.
