Presentations of Uniform Act Final Rule Implementation

Relocation Assistance Advisory Services

Discussions should address:


The wording of the advisory services related to new comparable replacement dwellings addresses pointing out the short-term nature of the URA benefits against the longer term nature of those for housing subsidies.

This applies to persons being displaced from subsidized housing or to persons who qualify for and opt to occupy a subsidized unit. The replacement unit may not be the same size as the displacement dwelling due to criteria of the subsidized housing program.

The second point pertains to the expected duration of government-assisted housing and relocation under the URA where rental assistance is limited to 42 months. The availability of a large lump-sum payment may encourage some displaced persons to forego government-assisted housing.
