The Housing Authority of Prince George's County (HAPGC) is proposing to amend our current payment standards in order to reduce our payment standards to 100% of the Housing and Urban Development fair market rents. The Housing Authority will also amend chapter 3 of the Housing Choice Voucher administrative plan entitled Emergency VAWA Transfers and the Public Housing ACOP.
