On May 6, USDA Rural Development issued a Frequently Asked Questions document for residents in rural Multi-Family Housing properties. The FAQs are designed for tenants in Section 514 and Section 515 housing; the document covers the following topics:

  • The CARES Act evictions moratorium;
  • Rent payments
  • Income calculations
  • Stimulus check funds
  • Unemployment Insurance
  • Over-Income Status

The agency has made the FAQ available in both English and Spanish for rural housing residents. USDA strongly encourages property owners and management agents of Section 514 and Section 515 properties to distribute the FAQ to tenants electronically when possible, as well as post in common areas.

A similar HUD tenant rent brochure is also available for HUD-assisted Multifamily Housing residents.
