On October 11, 2017 HUD released interim guidance for PHAs receiving requests from participants porting from Presidentially declared Major Disaster Declaration areas. This guidance provides more details for receiving PHAs on how to process ports when the initial PHA is not able to complete all portability responsibilities. This temporary process will be in effect until January 31, 2018, unless extended by HUD. The PHA Portability Status List includes all PHAs in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, indicating whether receiving PHAs should use these alterative procedures when assisting a portability participant. When HUD confirms that an initial PHA is able to resume all portability responsibilities, HUD will update the PHA’s status on the list. HUD will update this list by 5:00PM EST every Thursday.
