"relief fund" Discussed on WSJ Minute Briefing
"Last year the federal government put in place a couple of big programs to help renters who were hit financially during the pandemic stay in their homes was a moratorium on evictions. Another offered rental assistance payments to tenants and landlords. Well the eviction moratorium is set to expire three weeks from today and the relief funds still haven't reached many people who are eligible for them. Housing reporter will parker's been tracking this for us. And he's here with an update will thanks for taking the time to chat. Thanks for having me so will. This is a complicated issue with a lot of players. I wanna ask you about what's being done on a couple of fronts. This federal funding for renters actually disbursed by state and local governments and back in april. They were overwhelmed with having allocate so much money at once any progress there. There is progress there. The states and cities have started to get some of the money out for the most part. It took them a long time to get going but now they're starting to to put more out there. It's just there are still a lot of barriers that are making things slower than i think most people had hoped. Yeah let's talk about some of those barriers it seems like there's some kinks in the pipeline. Starting with the applications the begin the whole process. Can you explain that. Yeah a big part of this. Is you know what these agencies that are administering. The aid require tenants and landlords to show them so that they can approve. That you know you have an emergency situation. Where attendant is at risk eviction and they have a financial difficulty that makes them Eligible for for this money. But you know the more documents you require. The more processing that takes in the more likely that certain tenants or landlords may not be able to provide it and that seems to be one of the biggest problems that tenants simply are not able to complete their applications because of some of these document requirements. Have there been any efforts to simplify that process so this is been a major point of emphasis for the us treasury department which is overseeing the administration of the now the local agencies have a lot of leeway deciding how exactly people qualify and how how people apply for it but the treasury has put out in a big part of what they're asking local agencies to do is to loosen some of those documentation requirements. The other thing that they've done is they. They really encouraging local governments to give money directly to tenants. That has not been the case for most of this program. The priority has been to put the money in the hands of landlords because the debt is owed to them and that's the most efficient method but oftentimes landlords are either or slow to participate or don't want to participate. So there's there's been an emphasis to to try to encourage more money to go directly to the tenants so forty seven billion dollars has been allocated by the government to stave off of actions. How much of that. Money has actually gotten into the hands of tenants and landlords so across to emergency rental assistance programs that were created by congress. We have about forty seven billion dollars about half of that comes from january and behalf of it comes from march. My understanding is that most programs are are still working through spending the first half that they received back in january and the treasury department is yet to actually say how much of that total has found. Its way to tenants and landlords. And whatever that number is it's going to have serious implications for something like the addiction. Moratorium the cdc which you know put the moratorium retirement place. They're doing it on the basis of a public health crisis. So they're not making this decision thinking about rental debt and housing instability. They're looking at a purely in terms of this is a pandemic and we think fiction activity can contribute to disease spread but the biden administration has to be thinking about the rental assistance aspect of the too and whether or not it makes sense to let the band expire before the majority of this rental aid can get to tenants and prevent evictions from happening. Yeah the june. Thirtieth terrarium deadline is just a few weeks away now. It's been renewed several times before that could very well happen again. Although it's not clear for tenants looking at that deadline who now have many months of of unpaid rent you know. The delay and funding getting to them has serious consequences for what happens after that. June thirtieth deadline. And what's the situation like these tenants. What are you hearing from them. A lot of tenants have have difficulties navigating the ins and outs of these rental assistance programs and how to qualify. And there are a lot of legal aid attorneys. That are helping them do it. But sometimes tenants on their own Are not always able to figure out how to put those applications and and make sure they have all the right documents so there's a lot of frustration there but there are also a lot of people that are that have received the money that have been held by it and that have you know had their rental debts that they've accumulated during the pandemic reduced to zero and are now on a better footing perhaps have found employment again. And it's working for them. So will you mentioned before. Some landlords were reluctant to accept relief funds because those funds came with strings attached. Is that still going on. That is still going on. You know a lot of the programs that are administering these funds. What they want to see is that you know if they're giving this aid to landlords they want something in return they wanna make sure that people are not being addicted in that. This money is going to stop this problem. That they're worried about which is an increase in the visions. I talked to the the president of jefferson parish in louisiana which is near new orleans and one of the delays in getting the was debate with the landlords over. You know how much time they would wait before they could start a victims again if they accepted rental assistance. So you getting everyone on the same page agreeing to the terms of how these programs will work Continues to be a barrier as well and you also said that the treasury's been trying to get the money into the hands of tenants directly and inefficient fashion. How's that been going. So they can put out guidance. Which is you know. it's not legally binding. It's what they recommend that. These state and metropolitan agencies do an order to streamline their process. There are some programs that have made changes based on the treasury's recommendation the national low income housing coalition which is a washington based kind of tenant advocacy. Group has been tracking. You know that there are dozens that have started paying money to to tenants directly there. Dozens of programs that have loosened the document requirements. You know not required you to have some sort of documentation for you know cash income which can be difficult or have a lease if you've been living month to month for example but many many programs are are not doing these things or not making these changes And a big reason is that there's a certain fear of fraud that programs want to avoid. They don't want to be sending out money in error to those individuals who may not actually be the ones you need it all right. That's wall street journal. Reporter will parker will.

Make sure you read all of those instructions and follow them because you know obviously at the end of the day you don't want your clients to be left high and dry, either so just make sure you follow whatever instruction the company gives you any case where they don't give you any instruction again. Just try not to. To panic, but think about what you need to do. That's best for you in that situation and not so much worrying about what happens to their equipment, or you know things like that. Just think about you know what what's the best thing you can do for yourself is yet and you know you gotta think of the money to you know you're still gonna be getting mileage for delivering that load, so you know you don't i. just drop everything you know.

"relief fund" Discussed on The Hospital Finance Podcast
"The changes we made in this rule are designed to streamline and speed up the stark law advisor, opinion process, and in particular to do so. We moved to a user fee structure. Some people might not know much about our stark law advisory opinion process, but HHS will actually issue an advisory opinion on whether particular arrangements would violate stark law if we conclude that an arrangement would not violate the stark law. Then HHS is bound by that determination and cannot impose sanctions on any of the parties to the arrangement. Under our new process HHS will also not impose sanctions on any other arrangement that is indistinguishable in all material, respects from the arrangement analyzed in prior advisory opinion and providers can seeking opinion on whether they're. Arrangement is indistinguishable from a prior arrangement. Does as you just frequently. Issue Advisory Opinions relating to the Stark Law. We don't I would say our stark law advisor opinion process is fairly under utilized right now, not counting the handful of narrow advisory opinions issued in two thousand four on Specialty Hospital. Moratorium CMS has issued only fifteen advisory opinions about twenty years in contrast our office of Inspector General which enforces the anti kickback. Statute has been averaging about fifteen kickback advisory opinions each year. The relative scarcity of Stark Advisory Opinion, factor opinions was one factor I would say motivating reforms to the process. We hope the new process. It's easier to take advantage of and that the healthcare industry will reach out for guidance on Stark Law. If HHS cashew more advisory opinions, it will provide greater regulatory clarity to the industry and reduce the stark. Laws Burton. Brennan. Another priority of the administration has been to reform the administrative state. How is HFS contributing to that effort? You Administration has tried to bring some consistency to how agencies issue binding regulations, one of the most significant initiatives was an executive order issued in October of last year, restricting the use of agency guidance documents before I get to that executive order a little background, the heart of modern administrative law is the requirement that agencies must provide the public with notice and an opportunity to comment before a new rule, imposing new obligations becomes final. This is referred to as notice and comment rulemaking. If agencies want to merely explain existing obligations, they can do so by issuing guidance documents which do not need to go through notice and comment rulemaking. But, too often agencies have worked around the requirements of notice and comment rulemaking by embedding new regulatory obligations and guidance documents. This executive order requires agencies to issue regulations governing their usage guidance. These. Regulations must seek to ensure that guidance does not purport to create new legal obligations for example, all guidance documents are required to clearly state on their face that they lacked the force ineffective law. But even where a guidance document does not include new requirements and merely interprets or summarizes an existing requirement, sometimes that guidance is buried in a sub page of some page of a website, and it's not always easy for regulated parties to find it. So, this order has simple solution. It requires agencies to post all of their guidance on a single searchable website. I didn't spend is not posted is deemed rescinded. Finally. The public must also be given an opportunity to petition any agency to modify or rescind one of its guidance documents. HHS is is working on implementing this executive order, and you should watch for further development soon. I imagine there's been some distraction from this Regulatory Reform Agenda lately as a result of covid nineteen. Let's talk about some of the work. HHS is done recently to oversee distribution of money from the coronavirus provider Relief Fund. This has been a major.

What their aspirations on the Endo Yeah and and I mean. Let me go back to square one here though because I think one of the interesting things about in one of the lessons learned perhaps from the coronavirus. Pandemic has been this idea that you know we do have this big digital divide in Vermont and. It's not all economic. Some of its location you in in the cities people think of the digital divide is as being. Obviously you have lower income families who can't afford the you know the monthly bill for a high speed Internet, or or that and and you know and sometimes can't can't really afford the the quick devices the computers, etc.. They'll connect and do so effectively and so on, but The the the biggest you in a rural stay like for Mont really is is. I mean that's one of them. Obviously, the the wealth gap is is present everywhere, but. The the the other big one here is just where where you're located.

A new skin really looks like or whatever. So. Are We. Is Anybody talking about arriving at a conclusion that says. This is this.

To every kid, no matter where he or she lives and rural electrification is another. Push. That happened back in really in the mid century. Twenty th century and we now have basically no part of Vermont where you can't get connected somehow to to the electrical grid. Are we ever going to get there?
