Tenants- Section 8 UPDATE

Tenants- Section 8 UPDATE

Due to the current CO-VID 19 pandemic, and its impact on conducting business, LHA is implementing the following procedures as of March 19, 2020.

Section 8 Moves/Change of Units/Lease ups will NOT be processed unless they are already in progress. Exceptions to this will be made on a case by case basis and will only be considered if it is an emergency housing need (i.e. currently homeless) and you have already been issued a voucher, and you submit a complete and signed Request for Tenancy Approval.

Interim declarations for loss of income will only be processed as staff time allows and must be submitted as follows: completed in its entirety, including documented verification from the income source (i.e. employer) of the decrease.

The following will NOT be processed:

  • Loss of income expected to last less than 30 days.
  • Incomplete interim declaration form (including signatures)
  • Interim declaration forms submitted without documented verification from employer

If an interim is processed for decrease in income, you must then submit an interim declaration within 10 days stating you are returning to work.  This must be accompanied by a written statement from your employer stating date of return to work.

Governor Polis directed everyone affected by layoffs etc. to immediately file for unemployment.
