ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2014 requires that SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:06 Apr 25, 2014 Jkt 232001 HUD apply ‘‘an inflation factor as established by the Secretary, by notice published in the Federal Register’’ to adjust FY 2014 renewal funding for the Tenant-based Rental Assistance Program or Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Program of each PHA. HUD began using Renewal Funding Inflation Factors in FY 2012. These Renewal Funding Inflation Factors incorporate economic indices to measure the expected change in per unit costs (PUC) for the HCV program. The methodology for FY 2014 is similar to that used in FY 2013. DATES: Effective Date: April 28, 2014. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Michael S. Dennis, Director, Housing Voucher Programs, Office of Public Housing and Voucher Programs, Office of Public and Indian Housing, telephone number 202–708–1380; or, for technical information regarding the development of the schedules for specific areas or the methods used for calculating the inflation factors, Peter B. Kahn, Director, Economic and Market Analysis Division, Office of Policy Development and Research, telephone number 202– 402–2409, Department of Housing and Urban Development, 451 7th Street SW., Washington, DC 20410. Hearing- or speech-impaired persons may contact the Federal Relay Service at 800–877– 8339 (TTY). (Other than the ‘‘800’’ TTY number, the above-listed telephone numbers are not toll free.) SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background Tables showing Renewal Funding Inflation Factors will be available electronically from the HUD data information page at: http:// www.huduser.org/portal/datasets/rfif/ FY2014/FY2014_IF_Table.pdf. Division L, Title II, Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2014 (Pub. L. 113– 76, approved January 17, 2014) requires that the HUD Secretary, for the calendar year 2014 funding cycle, provide renewal funding for each public housing agency (PHA) based on validated voucher management system (VMS) leasing and cost data for the prior calendar year and by applying an inflation factor as established by the Secretary, by notice published in the Federal Register. This notice provides the FY 2014 inflation factors and describes the methodology for calculating them. II. Methodology The Department has focused on measuring the change in average per unit cost (PUC) as captured in HUD’s administrative data in VMS. In order to predict the likely path of PUC over time, PO 00000 Frm 00052 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 HUD has implemented a model that uses three economic indices that capture key components of the economic climate and assist in explaining the changes in PUC. These economic components are the seasonally-adjusted unemployment rate (lagged twelve months), the Consumer Price Index from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, and the ‘‘wages and salaries’’ component of personal income from the National Income and Product Accounts from the Bureau of Economic Analysis. This model subsequently forecasts the expected annual change in average PUC from Calendar Year (CY) 2013 to CY 2014 for the voucher program on a national basis by incorporating comparable economic variables from the Administration’s economic assumptions. For reference, these economic assumptions are described in the FY 2015 Budget. The inflation factor for an individual geographic area is based on the change in the area’s Fair Market Rent (FMR) 1 between FY 2013 and FY 2014. These changes in FMR are then scaled such that the voucher-weighted average of all individual area inflation factors is equal to the expected annual change in national PUC from FY 2013 to FY 2014, and also such that no area has a factor less than one. HUD subsequently applies these calculated individual area inflation factors to eligible renewal funding for each PHA based on VMS leasing and cost data for the prior calendar year. For the CY 2014 PHA HCV allocation uses 0.23 percent as the annual change in PUC. This figure was calculated by using VMS data through December of 2013 and actual performance of economic indices through December of 2013. III. The Use of Inflation Factors The inflation factors have been developed to account for relative differences in the PUC of vouchers so that HCV funds can be allocated among PHAs. HUD will continue to update the current model with available data in order to assess the expected annual change in PUC and may update the methodology for future funding estimates, if necessary. HUD is also continuing to review and refine the methodology, especially for area differences in the factors, which will be described in future inflation factor notices. 1 Most FMRs are set at the 40th percentile of the distribution of gross rents in the area. Several FMR areas have their FMRs based on 50th percentile rents as a tool for deconcentrating voucher holders within the FMR area. For consistency, changes in rents from FY 2013 to FY 2014 are measured using 40th percentile rents for all areas. E:\FR\FM\28APN1.SGM 28APN1
