Federal Government Shutdown Update for Home Forward Participants and Landlord Partners

The federal government is no longer shut down and is currently open until February 15, 2019.  During the shutdown, federal departments including the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) were adversely affected.  Home Forward receives the majority of our funding through HUD, including the resources that support the Housing Choice Voucher program that is also known as Section 8. 

Our federal partner, HUD, has confirmed that Home Forward will receive Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8) rent assistance funds for February 2019 and Home Forward is fully operational.  

We will continue to update our community as we get new information.
