Federal Housing Administration (FHA): Suspension of Section 238(c) Single-Family Mortgage Insurance in Military Impacted Areas
Document Number: 2011-22189
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2011-08-30
Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
This proposed rule would suspend FHA's mortgage insurance program for military impacted areas under section 238(c) of the National Housing Act (Act). This single-family mortgage insurance program, established by regulation in 1977, has been significantly underutilized for the past several years. Additionally, these mortgage loans are insured under comparable terms and conditions as loans insured under HUD's primary single-family mortgage insurance program under section 203(b) of the National Housing Act. Accordingly, those borrowers who would be served under section 238(c) of the Act are served equally well under the section 203(b) mortgage insurance program. The suspension of this mortgage insurance program is consistent with the President's budget request for Fiscal Year 2012.

Notice of Submission of Proposed Information Collection to OMB Section 8 Random Digit Dialing Fair Marketing Rent Surveys
Document Number: 2011-22029
Type: Notice
Date: 2011-08-29
Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
The proposed information collection requirement described below has been submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review, as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act. The Department is soliciting public comments on the subject proposal. HUD is evaluating alternative survey methodologies to collect gross rent data for specific areas in a relatively fast and accurate way that may be used to estimate and update Section 8 Fair Market Rents (FMRs) in areas where FMRs are believed to be incorrect and data from the American Community Survey is not available at the local level. Section 8(C)(1) of the United States Housing Act of 1937 requires the Secretary to publish Fair Market Rents (FMRs) annually to be effective on October 1 of each year. FMRs are used for the Section 8 Rental Certificate Program (including space rentals by owners of manufactured homes under that program); the Moderate Rehabilitation Single Room Occupancy program; housing assisted under the Loan Management and Property Disposition programs; payment standards for the Rental Voucher program; and any other programs whose regulations specify their use. Random digit dialing (RDD) telephone surveys have been used for many years to adjust FMRs and will be evaluated for continued use. These surveys are based on a sampling procedure that uses computers to select statistically random samples of telephone numbers to locate certain types of rental housing units for surveying. Cell phone surveys will be incorporated into this methodology and comprise roughly one-third of the sample. In addition HUD will collect survey data using web-based and mail systems. Initially, as the methodology is being refined, HUD will conduct surveys of up to 4 individual FMR areas in a year to test the accuracy of their FMRs. Up to 5 individual FMR area will be surveyed after the new methodology is determined.

Type: Notice

Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
Section 8(c)(1) of the United States Housing Act of 1937 (USHA) requires the Secretary to publish FMRs periodically, but not less than annually, adjusted to be effective on October 1 of each year. The primary uses of FMRs are to determine payment standards for the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program, to determine initial renewal rents for some expiring project-based Section 8 contracts, to determine initial rents for housing assistance payment contracts in the Moderate Rehabilitation Single Room Occupancy program, and to serve as rent ceilings in the HOME program. Today's notice provides proposed FY 2012 FMRs for all areas that reflect the estimated 40th and 50th percentile rent levels trended to April 1, 2012. The FY 2012 FMRs are re- benchmarked using five-year, 2005-2009 data collected by the American Community Survey (ACS). These data are updated using one-year ACS data in areas where statistically valid one-year ACS data is available. The Consumer Price Index (CPI) rent and utility indexes are used to further update the data from 2009 to the end of 2010. HUD continues to use ACS data in different ways according to how many two-bedroom standard- quality and recent-mover sample cases are available in the FMR area or its Core-Based Statistical Area (CBSA). The proposed FY 2012 FMR areas are based on current Office of Management and Budget (OMB) metropolitan area definitions and include HUD modifications that were first used in the determination of FY 2006 FMR areas. Changes to the OMB metropolitan area definitions through December 2009 are incorporated. The bedroom ratios developed using 2000 Census data continue to be used and state minimums, calculated each year from the estimated FMRs, continue to be applied. This notice also includes HUD's responses to comments received on the March 9, 2011, (76 FR 12985), Federal Register notice (``Trend Notice'') seeking public comment regarding the manner in which HUD calculates a trend factor, the time period the trend factor is applied in the FMR estimation process and related issues. HUD received four applications to participate in the Small Area FMR demonstration program. These applications are being reviewed and information on the demonstration program will be made available in a notice published at a later date. Finally, in an effort to serve HUD's external clients who use HUD's estimates of Area Median Family Income (MFI) and their associated Income Limits (IL), HUD is requesting comments on a proposal to establish a certain date for publishing these parameters.
