Public Housing Operating Fund Program; Revised Transition Funding Schedule for Fiscal Year 2008 Through Fiscal Year 2012
Document Number: E6-19821
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2006-11-24
Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
This proposed rule would modify HUD's regulations for transition funding under the Operating Fund Program. The Operating Fund Program, as revised by a September 19, 2005, final rule, adopted a new formula for determining the payment of operating subsidy to public housing agencies (PHAs). Transition funding is based on the difference in subsidy levels between the new formula and the formula in effect prior to the implementation of the September 19, 2005, final rule. As a result of the new formula, PHAs may experience either an increase or decrease in the amount of funding that they receive. For PHAs experiencing a decline in operating subsidy as a result of the new formula, the September 19, 2005, final rule phases in the reduction over a period of years. This proposed rule would revise the schedule for those PHAs that will experience a decline in funding, by extending the transition phase-in period an additional year.
