Emergency Housing Vouchers
Emergency Housing Voucher Program
The Emergency Housing Voucher (EHV) program is available through the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA). Through EHV, HUD is providing 70,000 housing choice vouchers to local Public Housing Authorities (PHAs) in order to assist individuals and families who are:
  • Homeless,
  • At risk of homelessness,
  • Fleeing, or attempting to flee, domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, stalking, or human trafficking, or
  • Were recently homeless or have a high risk of housing instability. 

IMS/PIC Reporting Discrepancies

HUD created an EHV Exception Report to help EHV PHAs identify IMS/PIC reporting discrepancies. Please use this report to identify and resolve potential discrepancies in your PHA’s reporting in IMS/PIC. Email EHV@hud.gov if you have any questions regarding this report.

Important Notices for PHAs

Guidance on reporting EHV issuances when submitting the HUD-50058/HUD-50058 MTW in IMS/PIC:

  • PHAs should report in line 2n when submitting the HUD-50058 by entering “EHV”.
  • MTW PHAs that have received HUD approval to apply MTW flexibilities to EHV vouchers may report household participant data on the HUD-50058 MTW and must enter “EHV” on line 2p and leave line 2n blank.
PHAs can request a per unit cost (PUC) increase for their EHVs.
  • The initial funding increment for the EHV allocation is based on the PHA's PUC for the PHA's HCV program, adjusted for inflation and taking into consideration that the initial term is longer than 12 months.
  • HUD will adjust the initial funding amount based on the actual costs incurred upon request by the PHA to ensure the PHA has sufficient funding during the initial funding term to lease all of its EHVs and pay its EHV HAP costs through December 31, 2022.
  • If the PHA believes that an adjustment is needed, it should contact its financial analyst in HUD's Office of Housing Voucher Programs Financial Management Center (FMC).
