    I work for HUD and although I can't read all of the detail, this looks like a standard one year notice.  All owners must provide this to their tenants one year in advance of the Sec 8 contract termination.  In it, they must state their intentions to stay in the program or to opt out.

    In the worst case scenario, should HUD not have the funds to renew the contract, all eligible tenants would be given a tenant based Sec 8 voucher - this also happens when an owner opts out of the Sec 8 program.  There are 2 differences with this voucher: 1) This one is portable and stays with the tenant for as long as you are income eligible.  You can use it to stay put or to move to another building.  Your current subsidy "belongs" to the building.  If you move, it will not go with you.  (2) Instead of the voucher being administered by HUD like it currently is, this one will be administered by the local Public HOusing Agency.
    Again, please don;t worry.  If you have any questions, the letter should have provided you with the name and telephone number of the HUD Project Manager overseeing your building.  Good luck!
