Government Shutdown
The Boise City and Ada County Housing Authorities remain open during the government shutdown and will continue to provide all services as planned for our participants, employees, and vendors. As you may know, a government shutdown occurred on Saturday December 22nd due to Congress' inability to approve a federal budget or to extend the Continuing Resolution. Since the majority of our funding comes from the federal government, the shutdown could have a direct impact on our Public Housing and Housing Choice Voucher programs. We have recently been informed that HUD has enough money to ensure that housing assistance payments through February 2019 will be made available. As we get a better sense of how long this shutdown will last, we will be able to assess future situations and will communicate the information on our website at
