Where can I find information about renting or building apartments and other multifamily housing?

For information about multifamily programs, initiatives and policies related to HUD's Office of Multifamily Housing Programs, please visit the following HUD websites:

The Multifamily Housing Clearinghouse can be reached by calling 1-800-MULTI-70 (1-800-685-8470).  The line is staffed Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time by customer service representatives.
If you are looking to see if your apartment is covered under the CARES Act eviction moratorium, you can search for FHA-insured or Multifamily Assisted properties at the following website:
A HUD Multifamily Assisted property includes properties that receive HUD project-based assistance through its Section 8 rental assistance program; Section 202 Housing for Low-income Elderly; or Section 811 Housing for Persons with Disabilities programs; and formerly assisted Multifamily properties with continuing use restrictions.  Properties that are part of HUD’s Public and Indian Housing programs, including Housing Choice Vouchers, Project-Based Vouchers, or Public Housing, or are participating in Community Development Block Grant programs, are not part of this database and will not appear in search results.

All policy information contained in this knowledge base article is based upon the referenced HUD policy document. Any lending or insuring decisions should adhere to the specific information contained in that underlying policy document.
