11 Rental Assistance Administrator Issue The HEARTH Act did not permit nonprofit organizations to administer rental assistance The FY2014 omnibus appropriation bill provided a short-term fix for grants funded in FY2012, FY2013, and FY2014 that allows nonprofits to administer rental assistance HUD continues to seek for a permanent legislative fix 12
