We prepared this memorandum to provide the Office of Housing at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) information regarding the opportunity to promote a homeless waitlist preference at Multifamily Housing rental assistance properties.  HUD has an opportunity to revisit the promotion and marketing of its homeless waitlist preference and the importance of partnering with a homeless service provider.  Additionally, HUD can take this opportunity to make any changes to the program or adopt additional incentives to increase the likelihood of owner and agent participation.  Lastly, HUD should also consider updating its public website to make it more liket that someone with limited resources and knowledge of its site can successfully identify Multifamily Housing rental assistance properties in his or her area.
