LeadingAge Submits Comments on Draft Electronic Signature Rule

Regulation | August 19, 2019 | by Colleen Bloom

On August 9, LeadingAge submitted comments to an 18-page draft notice entitled, “Electronic Signature, Transmission, and Storage - Guidance for Multifamily Assisted Housing Industry Partners.

LeadingAge articulated member feedback welcoming the draft notice’s plans to permit, but not require, industry partners to use electronic signatures for project-based Section 8 and other multifamily subsidized housing program, including PAC, PRAC, SPRAC and RAD/PBRA, as well as the permission to electronically transmit and electronically store files, and articulating support for the new opportunities for owners/agents to utilize technological tools to automate processes, help manage data and documents, and potentially free up resources.

It is unclear when the notice may be finalized, but we will be sure to share that information as soon as it is available.
