The Guam Housing and Urban Renewal Authority (GHURA) is warning that October 2019 rental payments for Section 8 landlords will not be deposited to their respective banking institutions on Oct. 1 as regularly scheduled.

According to GHURA, this is only a slight delay and payment deposits will be made by the second business day.

GHURA and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) attribute the slight delay to the ending of the fiscal year. And because of the time difference between Guam and the U.S. mainland, HUD would be unable to transmit Section 8 funds in advance as routinely scheduled.

GHURA assured that all other monthly rental payments will resume as scheduled.
