Housing and Community Development Act of 1980: Verification of Eligible Status
Document Number: 2019-09566
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-05-10
Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
This proposed rule would make two changes to HUD's regulations implementing section 214 of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1980, as amended (Section 214). Section 214 prohibits the Secretary of HUD from making financial assistance available to persons other than United States citizens or certain categories of eligible noncitizens in HUD's public and specified assisted housing programs. The proposed rule would require the verification of the eligible immigration status of all recipients of assistance under a covered program who are under the age of 62. As a result, the proposed rule would make prorated assistance a temporary condition pending verification of eligible status, as opposed to under the current regulation where it could continue indefinitely. The proposed rule would also specify that individuals who are not in eligible immigration status may not serve as the leaseholder, even as part of a mixed family whose assistance is prorated based on the percentage of members with eligible status. HUD believes the amendments will bring its regulations into greater alignment with the wording and purpose of Section 214.

VDS-Best Ex will establish a Fair Market List Price and a bid and counteroffer process for HUD's Single Family REO properties, to identify the ideal pricing point and discount rate percentages that FHA should consider when selling a property from its Secretary-held REO portfolio.

Section 3 Benchmarks for Creating Economic Opportunities for Low- and Very Low-Income Persons and Eligible Businesses
Document Number: 2019-06564
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-04-04
Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
Section 3 of the Housing and Urban Development Act of 1968, as amended by the Housing and Community Development Act of 1992 (Section 3), contributes to the establishment of stronger, more sustainable communities by ensuring that employment and other economic opportunities generated by Federal financial assistance for housing and community development programs are, to the greatest extent feasible, directed toward low- and very low-income persons, particularly those who are recipients of government assistance for housing. HUD is statutorily charged with the authority and responsibility to implement and enforce Section 3. Elsewhere in this issue of the Federal Register, HUD published a proposed rule that would amend the Section 3 regulations to, among other things, increase the impact of the Section 3 requirements, and streamline and update HUD's reporting and tracking requirements. The proposed rule includes a requirement that HUD set Section 3 benchmarks by publishing a notification, subject to public comment, in the Federal Register. The proposed rule provides that HUD will set benchmarks based on the number of Section 3 workers and a subset of Section 3 workers, defined as Targeted Section 3 workers. If a recipient complies with the statutory priorities regarding effort and meets the outcome benchmarks, HUD would presume the recipient is following Section 3 requirements, absent evidence to the contrary. These proposed outcome benchmarks are being published concurrently with the proposed rule so the public can comment on the proposed benchmarks and methodology for setting the benchmarks prior to adoption of the final rule and benchmarks.
Enhancing and Streamlining the Implementation of “Section 3” Requirements for Creating Economic Opportunities for Low- and Very Low-Income Persons and Eligible Businesses
Document Number: 2019-06495
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-04-04
Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
Section 3 of the Housing and Urban Development Act of 1968, as amended by the Housing and Community Development Act of 1992 (Section 3), contributes to the establishment of stronger, more sustainable communities by ensuring that employment and other economic opportunities generated by Federal financial assistance for housing and community development programs are, to the greatest extent feasible, directed toward low- and very low-income persons, particularly those who receive government assistance for housing. In accordance with statutory authority, HUD is charged with the responsibility to implement and enforce Section 3. HUD's regulations implementing the requirements of Section 3 have not been updated since 1994 and are not as effective as HUD believes they could be. This proposed rule would update HUD's Section 3 regulations to create more effective incentives for employers to retain and invest in their low- and very low-income workers, streamline reporting requirements by aligning them with typical business practices, provide for program-specific oversight, and clarify the obligations of entities that are covered by Section 3. The purpose of these changes is to increase the impact of the Section 3 requirements for low- and very low-income persons, increase compliance with Section 3 requirements, and reduce regulatory burden. HUD is also publishing elsewhere in this issue of the Federal Register a proposed notification for comment that would set initial benchmarks for measuring Section 3 compliance with the final rule.

HUD will obtain SSA data and make the results available to: (1) Program administrators such as public housing agencies (PHAs) and private owners and management agents (O/As) (collectively referred to as POAs) to enable them to verify the accuracy of income reported by the tenants (participants) of HUD rental assistance programs and (2) contract administrators (CAs) overseeing and monitoring O/A operations as well as independent public auditors (IPAs) that audit both PHAs and O/As. The most recent renewal of the current matching agreement will expire on May 7, 2019.

The Inventory Management System, also known as the Public and Indian Housing Information Center (IMS/PIC) serves as a national repository of information related to Public Housing Authorities (PHAs), HUD-assisted families, HUD-assisted properties, and other HUD programs for the purpose of monitoring and evaluating the effectiveness of HUD rental housing assistance programs. In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974, the Department of Housing and Urban Development, Office of Public and Indian Housing (PIH) proposes to modify the system of records titled, Inventory Management System (IMS), also known as Public and Indian Housing Information Center (PIC), HUD/PIH.01. This system of records allows the Department of Housing and Urban Development, Office of Public and Indian Housing to collect and maintain records on individuals and organizations administering, participating in, or potentially affected by, housing assistance programs administered by HUD. This proposed modification of the IMS/PIC system would allow the system to contain additional categories of records and types of individuals. Specifically, IMS/PIC will store information about applicants for disaster recovery assistance from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), provided pursuant to a computer matching agreement. Storing these records will enable HUD to aid individuals affected by natural disasters and prevent improper payments.
