Impact of the Federal shutdown on the Iowa City Housing Authority Updated

Update: 1/28/19 - Government shutdown to end. Details: https://nahroblog.org/2019/01/26/government-shutdown-ends/

The ICHA has funds to make the February 2019 Housing Assistance Payments (HAP) to landlords. However, the ICHA does not have funds to make the March 2019 HAP payment. Therefore, if the federal shutdown is not resolved by February 28, 2019, the ICHA will not be making any HAP payments to landlords beginning March 1, 2019. The ICHA will continue to operate with normal business hours. View the letters send to landlords and tenants: http://bit.ly/2FNGUKG
