The Partial Federal Government Shutdown
(1/15/2019, 1:53 pm) You may have heard about the partial federal government shutdown. We want to let you know how we are planning to address this issue. As of this posting, we:
- Do not plan to suspend or end any household's participation in our programs
- Do not plan to delay payments to our landlords or vendors
- Do not plan to cut our maintenance or management of our properties
- Do not plan to furlough any staff
However, that can change at a moment's notice. We are watching the news carefully. If it looks like Housing Authorities will not be funded, we will make necessary adjustments including delaying HAP payments, additional budget cuts and staff furloughs.
We wish we could give you clearer information, but the news is pretty confusing right now. On behalf of HOSWWA, we appreciate your participation and interest in our programs.
