I heard it changed, but IRS hasnt updated their website with it. Im taking my tax update webinars the first week of January, Im waiting for that to start stuffing the new rules in my brain.

It looks to me like those who would qualify for HoH, except they aren't paying more than half the household costs, will still qualify.  See Section 9623 of ARP, starting on Page 385.  Just off the top of my head.
