Notice of Fiscal Year (FY) 2013 Annual Adjustment Factors (AAFs). AGENCY: TKELLEY on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES ACTION: SUMMARY: The United States Housing Act of 1937 requires that assistance contracts signed by owners participating in the Department’s Section 8 housing assistance payment programs provide annual adjustments to monthly rentals for units covered by the contracts. This notice announces FY 2013 AAFs for adjustment of contract rents on assistance contract anniversaries. The factors are based on a formula using residential rent and utility cost changes from the most recent annual Bureau of Labor Statistics Consumer Price Index (CPI) survey. These factors are applied at Housing Assistance Payment (HAP) contract anniversaries for those calendar months commencing after the effective date of this notice. For FY 2011 and FY 2010, these AAFs were designated as ‘‘Contract Rent’’ AAFs, to differentiate them from ‘‘Renewal Funding’’ AAFs that were used exclusively for renewal funding of tenant-based rental assistance. Renewal Funding AAFs were replaced by an inflation factor established by the Secretary in FY 2012, so there is no need to differentiate the AAF by use. A separate Federal Register Notice will be published at a later date that will identify the inflation factors that will be used to adjust tenant-based rental assistance funding for FY 2013. DATES: Effective Date: May 22, 2013. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Contact Michael S.

The mailing address for these individuals is: Department of Housing and Urban Development, 451 7th Street SW., Washington, DC 20410. Hearing- or speech-impaired persons may contact the Federal Information Relay Service at 800–877–8339 (TTY). (Other than the ‘‘800’’ TTY number, the above-listed telephone numbers are not toll free.) SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Tables showing AAFs will be available electronically from the HUD data information page at http:// www.huduser.org/portal/datasets/aaf/ FY2013_tables.pdf I. Applying AAFs to Various Section 8 Programs AAFs established by this Notice are used to adjust contract rents for units assisted in certain Section 8 housing assistance payment programs during the initial (i.e., pre-renewal) term of the HAP contract and for all units in the Project-Based Certificate program. There are three categories of Section 8 programs that use the AAFs: Category 1: The Section 8 New Construction, Substantial Rehabilitation, and Moderate Rehabilitation programs; Category 2: The Section 8 Loan Management (LM) and Property Disposition (PD) programs; and Category 3: The Section 8 ProjectBased Certificate (PBC) program. Each Section 8 program category uses the AAFs differently. The specific application of the AAFs is determined by the law, the HAP contract, and appropriate program regulations or requirements. AAFs are not used in the following cases: PO 00000 Frm 00056 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Renewal Rents. With the exception of the Project-Based Certificate program, AAFs are not used to determine renewal rents after expiration of the original Section 8 HAP contract (either for projects where the Section 8 HAP contract is renewed under a restructuring plan adopted under 24 CFR part 401; or renewed without restructuring under 24 CFR part 402). In general, renewal rents are based on the applicable state-by-state operating cost adjustment factor (OCAF) published by HUD; the OCAF is applied to the previous year’s contract rent minus debt service. Budget-based Rents. AAFs are not used for budget-based rent adjustments. For projects receiving Section 8 subsidies under the LM program (24 CFR part 886, subpart A) and for projects receiving Section 8 subsidies under the PD program (24 CFR part 886, subpart C), contract rents are adjusted, at HUD’s option, either by applying the AAFs or by budget-based adjustments in accordance with 24 CFR 886.112(b) and 24 CFR 886.312(b). Budget-based adjustments are used for most Section 8/202 projects. Tenant-based Certificate Program. In the past, AAFs were used to adjust the contract rent (including manufactured home space rentals) in both the tenantbased and project-based certificate programs. The tenant-based certificate program has been terminated and all tenancies in the tenant-based certificate program have been converted to the Housing Choice Voucher Program, which does not use AAFs to adjust rents. All tenancies remaining in the project-based certificate program continue to use AAFs to adjust contract rent for outstanding HAP contracts. Voucher Program. AAFs are not used to adjust rents in the Tenant-Based or the Project-Based Voucher programs. II. Adjustment Procedures This section of the notice provides a broad description of procedures for adjusting the contract rent. Technical details and requirements are described in HUD notices H 2002–10 (Section 8 New Construction and Substantial Rehabilitation, Loan Management, and Property Disposition) and PIH 97–57 (Moderate Rehabilitation and ProjectBased Certificates). Because of statutory and structural distinctions among the various Section 8 programs, there are separate rent adjustment procedures for the three program categories: E:\FR\FM\22MYN1.SGM 22MYN1
