On May 9, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) issued Notice H 2012-09 "Supplemental Information to Application for Assistance Regarding Identification of Family Member, Friend or Other Persons or Organization Supportive of a Tenant for Occupancy in HUD Assisted Housing," which reinstated and extended indefinitely the policy requiring owner/agents to provide Form HUD-92006, Supplement to Application for Federally Assisted Housing (Attachment A), as part of property/program applications.
The notice reprints the policies from Notice H 2009-13, which detail when applicants and/or tenants should be provided the opportunity to complete, update or change their designated contact information; and for what purposes such individuals or organizations may be contacted.
While many properties already have some type of contact form in their resident files, this notice says you must use this form in addition to any other form that you currently use.
In summary: at time of application, at time of admission, and/or at time of annual recertification – or any other time a tenant may so request; and only for the purposes specified by the applicant or tenant - owner/agents cannot require that any applicant or tenant provide contact information.
