As Chris suggested, you’ll have to contact the housing authority or whatever local agency handles the Housing Assistance program (HAP) in your area.
You’ll most likely have to sign a new HAP contract with HUD and new leases with the tenants. I had a tenant who moved frome one apartement to another in the same building with the same rent, and had to go thru the whole rigamarole. Had to do it again when I changed company names. The paperwork is a pain, but if you screen the tenants properly and keep the property up to standards its worthwhile (I hope my HUD tenant lives forever.)
