Here are a few of the changes to COVID-19 Supplemental Payment eligibility and submission requirements:

  • WiFi Internet equipment, HVAC upgrades, and in limited cases, emergency generators, are now included costs.
  • HUD will permit owners to amend prior round approved CSP requests to include additional expenses that they may have inadvertently omitted or are now made eligible by the Round 4 Notice.
  • Some of the financial need criteria for smaller requests will be waived.
  • Properties projecting surplus cash are now eligible for amounts up to the Standard CSP cap for expenses incurred April 1, 2021, to October 31, 2021.
