Breaking News
Federal Register Notices for Section 8 and the Low Income Housing Tax Credit
HUD has issued two Federal Register notices for Section 8 and the Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC):

1. 30 Day Notice of Proposed Information Collection:  Quality Control for Rental Assistance Subsidy Determinations [FR-563-N-99]

The purpose of this notice is to allow for an additional 30 days of public comment on HUD’s study to update its estimates of the extent and type of errors associated with income, rent, and subsidy determinations for Section 8 and Public Housing properties. In addition to providing current estimates of error, results will be compared with those from previous years’ studies. These comparisons will indicate whether corrective actions initiated since the 2000 study have been effective and if changes in priorities are needed.

HUD is soliciting comments to determine whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected, and ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information. NAHMA will review the proposal in consultation with our Federal/Regulatory Affairs Committee members.

2. Designation of Difficult Development Areas for 2014 [FR-5738-N-01]

This notice designates ‘‘Difficult Development Areas’’ (DDAs) for purposes of the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC). The designations of DDAs in this notice are based on fiscal year 2013 Fair Market Rents (FMRs), FY 2013 income limits, and 2010 Census population counts. In addition to announcing the 2014 DDA designations, this notice announces a change in the designation methodology for metropolitan DDAs, beginning with the 2016 designations. The revised methodology will use Small Area Fair Market Rents (SAFMRs), rather than metropolitan-area FMRs, for designating metropolitan DDA.

NAHMA will review this change in designation methodology in consultation with our Tax Credit Committee members.

An unnumbered letter from Rural Development that gives further details about the key underwriting principles and guidelines the Agency has adopted is now online at NAHMA.org. In this letter, you will find guidance for Transfer and Multifamily Housing Preservation and Revitalization (MPR) Demonstration Transactions. The Agency uses the term “underwriting” when referring to the process of financial feasibility determination.

This letter does not delve into aspects of the transaction process such as determining the suitability of the borrower, assessing environmental compliance or evaluating fair housing compliance.

Cincinnati HUD Office Closure

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development announced in April of this year that it planned to close a number of smaller field offices as part of a realignment of staff resources to better support program delivery.  Nationwide, HUD is closing 10 of its 80 field offices by the end of 2013.  This action will have a minimal impact on program delivery and customer service.

This realignment will better utilize staff and result in significant operational savings.  We will implement this realignment without disrupting the program delivery network currently serving your community.

Effective at close of business October 18, 2013 the Cincinnati HUD office is closed to the public. Going forward, HUD staff in Columbus, Ohio will work with local clients to ensure uninterrupted, quality service.  You will continue to be served by field offices in in Columbus and Cleveland.    Please reach out to your project manager to determine communication logistics moving forward.

In order to notify your residents please post the appropriate (PRAC or Section 8) notice (attached) in common areas of your properties and your offices that are located in the Cincinnati Jurisdiction (Adams, Brown, Butler, Clermont, Clinton, Darke, Greene, Hamilton, Highland, Miami, Montgomery, Preble and Warren Counties).

If you have any questions, your new contact will be Mr. Thomas Leach, the Field Office Director of the Columbus Field Office, 200 N. High Street, Columbus, Ohio, 43215.
