Beneficiaries may provide rental assistance or services to eligible program participants who reside or wish to reside outside their jurisdiction.
They can also fund subgrantes that serve people outside the jurisdiction, subgrantes that are located outside the jurisdiction, and subgrantes serving multiple jurisdictions.
