Renewal of Approved Information Collection, OMB Control Number 1004-0169, 27085-27086 [2011-11289]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 90 / Tuesday, May 10, 2011 / Notices The CPI inflation index for rent of primary residence measures the inflation of all surveyed units regardless of whether utilities are included in the rent of the unit or not. In other words, it measures the inflation of the ‘‘contract rent’’ which includes units with all utilities included in the rent, units with some utilities included in the rent and units with no utilities included in the rent. In producing a gross rent inflation factor, HUD decomposes the contract rent CPI inflation factor into parts to represent the gross rent change and the shelter rent change. This is done by applying the percentage of renters who pay for heat (a proxy for the percentage renters who pay shelter rent) from the Consumer Expenditure Survey (CEX) and American Community Survey (ACS) data on the ratio of utilities to rents.2 The CEX data used to decompose the contract rent inflation factor into gross rent and shelter rent inflation factors come from a special tabulation of 2008 CEX survey data produced for HUD for the purpose of computing Renewal Funding AAFs. The utility-torent ratio used in the formula comes from 2008 ACS median rent and utility costs. In this publication, the rent and utility inflation factors for large metropolitan areas and Census regions are based on changes in the rent of primary residence and fuels and utilities CPI indices from the first half of 2009 to the first half of 2010, the most recent data available at the time of the development of final budget projections for fiscal year (FY) 2011. Typically, CPI indexes averaged over a 12-month period have been used to measure the change from year to year. The semiannual indexes used for Renewal Funding AAFs average data over six months as opposed to 12 months; the Renewal Funding AAFs use change over the course of two semi-annual index cycles to derive a 12-month adjustment. jlentini on DSKJ8SOYB1PROD with NOTICES II. The Use of Renewal Funding AAFs The Renewal Funding AAFs use the same methodology as the FY2010 Renewal Funding AAFs but differ from historical AAFs and the FY2011 Contract Rent AAFs in that they make use of more recent semi-annual CPI indexes in place of average annual CPI indexes. The Renewal Funding AAFs have been developed to account for relative differences in the recent inflation of rents among different areas and are used to allocate HCV funds 2 The formulas used to produce these factors can be found in the Annual Adjustment Factors overview and in the FMR documentation at http://www.HUDUSER.org. VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:02 May 09, 2011 Jkt 223001 among PHAs. HUD is reviewing and updating the methodologies for all program parameters, including Fair Market Rents (FMRs), AAFs, and other inflation indices. The publication of these separate Renewal Funding AAFs for allocation of voucher funds is an interim step toward more complete reforms including using more recent data in HUD’s estimations for various program parameters, including FMRs, as published in the Federal Register on October 4, 2010 (75 FR 61254). III. Geographic Areas Renewal Funding AAFs are produced for all Class A CPI cities (CPI cities with a population of 1.5 million or more) and for the four Census Regions. They are applied to core-based statistical areas (CBSAs), as defined by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), according to how much of the CBSA is covered by the CPI city-survey. If more than 75 percent of the CBSA is covered by the CPI city-survey, the Renewal Funding AAF that is based on that CPI survey is applied to the whole CBSA and to any HUD-defined metropolitan area, called ‘‘HUD Metro FMR Area’’ (HMFA), within that CBSA. If the CBSA is not covered by a CPI city-survey, the CBSA uses the relevant regional CPI factor. Almost all non-metropolitan counties use regional CPI factors. For areas assigned the Census Region CPI factor, both metropolitan and nonmetropolitan areas receive the same factor. The Renewal Funding AAF tables list the four Census Regions first, followed by an alphabetical listing of each metropolitan area, beginning with Akron, OH, MSA. Renewal Funding AAFs are provided: • For separate metropolitan areas, including HMFAs and counties that are currently designated as nonmetropolitan, but are part of the metropolitan area defined in the local CPI survey, and, • For the four Census Regions for those metropolitan and nonmetropolitan areas that are not covered by a CPI city-survey. Renewal Funding AAFs use the same OMB metropolitan area definitions, as revised by HUD, that are used in the FY 2011 FMRs. IV. Area Definitions To make certain that they are referencing the correct Renewal Funding AAFs, PHAs should refer to the Area Definitions Table at http:// www.huduser.org/portal/datasets/aaf/ FY2011_AreaDef.pdf. For units located in metropolitan areas with a local CPI survey, Renewal Funding AAFs are PO 00000 Frm 00085 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 27085 listed separately. For units located in areas without a local CPI survey, the metropolitan or nonmetropolitan counties receive the regional CPI for that Census Region. The Area Definitions Table for Renewal Funding AAFs, shown at http://www.huduser.org/portal/ datasets/aaf/FY2011_AreaDef.pdf, lists areas in alphabetical order by state. The associated CPI region is shown next to each state name. Areas whose Renewal Funding AAFs are determined by local CPI surveys are listed first. All metropolitan areas with local CPI surveys have separate Renewal Funding AAF schedules and are shown with their corresponding county definitions or as metropolitan counties. In the six New England states, the listings are for counties or parts of counties as defined by towns or cities. The remaining counties use the CPI for the Census Region and are not specifically listed on the Area Definitions Table. Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands use the South Region Renewal Funding AAFs. All areas in Hawaii use the Renewal Funding AAFs identified in the Table as ‘‘STATE: Hawaii,’’ which are based on the CPI survey for the Honolulu metropolitan area. The Pacific Islands use the West Region Renewal Funding AAFs. Accordingly, HUD publishes these Renewal Funding Annual Adjustment Factors as set forth in the Renewal Funding AAF Table posted at http:// www.huduser.org/portal/datasets/aaf/ FY2011_RF_table.pdf.
