Housing Development Programs—Programs that use MTW funds to acquire, renovate and/or build affordable units for low-income families that are not public housing units. Eligible activities may include: Gap financing for nonPHA development of affordable housing or tax credit partnerships. Statutes and Regulations Waived. Local, Non-Traditional Activities: MTW funds awarded to an MTW agency under sections 8(o), 9(d), and 9(e) of the 1937 Act can be utilized per statute and regulation for the eligible activities listed at Sections 8(o), 9(d)(1), and 9(e)(1) of the 1937 Act. Any authorized use of these funds outside of the allowable uses listed in the 1937 Act constitutes a local, non-traditional activity. Safe Harbor(s) ............ 17.c. • Agency must comply with Section 30 of the 1937 Housing Act. • The agency is subject to Notice PIH 2011–45 or any successor notice and/or guidance. • Agency may spend up to 10% of its MTW budget on local, non-traditional actives. All other applicable MTW requirements apply. 1 In the HCV tenant-based program, the housing assistance payment (HAP) is the lower of: (1) The payment standard minus the family’s TTP, or (2) the gross rent minus the TTP. The TTP is the minimum amount the family will pay as the family share. If the gross rent exceeds the payment standard, the family will pay TTP and the difference between the gross rent and the payment standard as the family share. In the HCV project-based program, the family always pays TTP minus any utility allowance (UA) as the tenant rent. khammond on DSK30JT082PROD with NOTICES * Impact Analysis The MTW agency must analyze and put into the writing the various impacts of the MTW activity. The MTW agency must prepare this analysis (1) prior to implementation of the MTW activity; (2) at minimum, on an annual basis during the implementation of the MTW activity; and (3) at the time the MTW activity is closed out. This analysis must consider the following eight factors: 1. Impact on the agency’s finances (e.g., how much will the activity cost, any change in the agency’s per family contribution); 2. Impact on affordability of housing costs for affected families (e.g., any change in how much affected families will pay towards their housing costs); 3. Impact on the agency’s waitlist(s) (e.g., any change in the amount of time families are on the waitlist); 4. Impact on the agency’s termination rate of families (e.g., the rate at which families non-voluntarily lose assistance from the agency); 5. Impact on the agency’s current occupancy level in public housing and utilization rate in the HCV program; 6. Impact on the agency’s ability to meet the MTW statutory requirements; 7. Impact on the community (e.g., any change in the number of families transitioning to self-sufficiency, and any change in the employment rate after the implementation of activities targeted towards working families); and 8. Across the other factors above, the impact on protected classes (and any associated disparate impact). The MTW agency must have the initial impact analysis, which analyzes potential 19 Agencies seeking to create a short-term program that goes beyond Section 8 or Section 9 as modified by MTW may propose an activity under the Local Non-Traditional Activities Rental Subsidy Program Waiver. 20 As agencies are considering potential waivers to the FSS program, they are encouraged to consult the Promising Practices Guidebook and Online Training that can be found at https:// www.hudexchange.info/programs/fss/#1introduction.

The agency must supply the annual impact analysis and/or the final impact analysis of the closed-out activity (if applicable), which analyzes actual impact of the MTW activity, at HUD’s request. This information must be retained by the agency for the duration of the agency’s participation in the MTW demonstration program and available for public review and inspection at the agency’s principal office during normal business hours. ** Elderly/Disabled Families The MTW activity must not apply to elderly families and disabled families as defined in 24 CFR 5.403 or the MTW agency’s approved definition under its MTW program. *** Hardship Policy The MTW agency must adopt written policies for determining when a requirement or provision of the MTW activity constitutes a financial or other hardship for the family. The agency shall make the determination of whether a financial or other hardship exists within a reasonable time after the family request. If the agency determines that a financial or other hardship exists, the PHA must immediately provide an exemption from the MTW activity at a reasonable level and duration, according to the agency’s written policies. Residents must be notified of the agency’s hardship policy. The agency’s written policies for determining what constitutes financial hardship must include the following situations: • The family has experienced a decrease in income because of changed circumstances, including loss or reduction of employment, death in the family, or reduction in or loss of earnings or other assistance; • The family has experienced an increase in expenses, because of changed circumstances, for medical costs, child care, transportation, education, or similar items; and • Such other situations and factors determined by the agency to be appropriate.
