The FY 2012 HUD Appropriations Act requires that HUD apply ``an inflation factor as established by the Secretary, by notice published in the Federal Register'' to adjust FY 2012 renewal funding for the tenant-based rental assistance voucher program or housing choice voucher (HCV) program of each PHA. For FY 2011 and FY 2010, renewal funding was based on annual adjustment factors (AAFs) and HUD published separate Renewal Funding AAFs for this purpose. The Renewal Funding AAFs, based only on Consumer Price Index (CPI) data for rents and utilities, have been replaced by inflation factors that incorporate additional economic indices to measure the expected change in the per unit cost (PUC) for the HCV program.
