Section 8 Housing Assistance Payments Program-Contract Rent Annual Adjustment Factors, Fiscal Year 2010
Document Number: 2010-2991
Type: Notice
Date: 2010-02-10
Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
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 adjustment to monthly rentals for units covered by the contract. This notice announces revised Contract Rent 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 current 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. In a separate notice, HUD will publish ``Renewal Funding AAFs'' to be used exclusively for renewal funding of tenant-based rental assistance, reflecting the more recent CPI data.
Section 8 Housing Assistance Payments Program-Renewal Funding Annual Adjustment Factors, Fiscal Year 2010
Document Number: 2010-2990
Type: Notice
Date: 2010-02-10
Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2010 (Pub. L. 111-117), directs HUD's Office of Public and Indian Housing (PIH) to ``provide renewal funding for each Public Housing Agency (PHA) based on Voucher Management System (VMS) leasing and cost data for the most recent Federal fiscal year and by applying the most recent Annual Adjustment Factors as established by the Secretary''. This notice announces Renewal Funding AAFs in response to that directive. Consumer Price Index (CPI) data, similar to those used for ``Contract Rent AAFs'', are used, but semi-annual CPI data replaces annual CPI data. This makes the Renewal Funding AAFs six months more current than the CPI data used to derive Contract Rent AAFs. These CPI data are more current data and better reflect the economic circumstances most relevant to the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program in 2010 and the assumptions of the 2010 budget. Like the Contract Rent AAFs, these factors are based on a formula using residential rent and utility cost changes. Contract Rent AAFs were published in a separate notice which can be viewed at: http:/ /www.huduser.org/portal/datasets/aaf.html/FY2010_CF_table.pdf .
