Proposed Fair Market Rents for the Housing Choice Voucher Program, Moderate Rehabilitation Single Room Occupancy Program and Other Programs Fiscal Year 2015
Document Number: 2014-19390
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-08-15
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. FMRs are also used in the calculation of maximum award amounts for Continuum of Care grantees. Today's notice provides proposed FY 2015 FMRs for all areas that reflect the estimated 40th and 50th percentile rent levels trended to April 1, 2015. The FY 2015 FMRs are based on ``5-year'' data collected by the American Community Survey (ACS) from 2008 through 2012. These data are updated by one-year 2012 ACS data for 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 2012 to the end of 2013. Finally, ACS data on changes national median gross rents from 2007 to 2012 are used to inflate the 2013 estimates to the 2015 levels. HUD continues to use ACS data in different ways according to the statistical reliability of rent estimates for areas of different population sizes and counts of rental units. The proposed FY 2015 FMRs in this notice do not reflect any updates to the methodology used to calculate FMRs. The proposed FY 2015 FMR areas are based on Office of Management and Budget (OMB) metropolitan area definitions as updated through December 1, 2009, and include HUD modifications that were first used in the determination of FY 2006 FMR areas. The February 28, 2013 OMB Area definition update has not been incorporated in this set of proposed FMRs due to the timing of the release and the availability of ACS data. HUD will work toward evaluating the impact of these new area definitions and discuss these findings in the final FY 2015 FMR publication, or, if that is not possible, in a subsequent publication in January 2015. The January 2015 notice will also discuss and solicit comments on several topics related to the calculation of FMRs, including the implementation of the February 28, 2013 OMB Metropolitan Area Definitions and possible measures the Department is considering that would reduce the concentration of Section 8 voucher tenants. For example, HUD is evaluating alternatives to the current 50th percentile FMR program, which was implemented to mitigate excessive geographic concentration of voucher tenants. Comments will be requested to determine interest in a program that is based on different measures for determining how many and which areas would receive special FMRs to encourage deconcentration, as well as on alternative FMR-based tools for promoting deconcentration such as Small Area FMRs estimated at the ZIP code level.

This system was unintentionally removed from the Department's repository and subsequent notice is being filed to re-establish coverage for the system of records, and rename the system ``mLINQS.'' Additional alterations made of the system include new and revised routine uses, and various other alterations, some of which are updates to the categories of records in the system, the authority for maintenance of the system, and the retention and disposal captions. Major changes are summarized in the introductory portion of the ``Supplementary Information'' caption. Moreover, mLINQS is a web-based application utilized by the Department to generate documents associated with permanent Change of Station moves for employees that have been approved for relocation entitlements, and to manage and track relocation obligations and payments for employee moves. This notification supersedes the above mentioned notice requirements set forth by HUD's system of records publication (March 26, 2014 at 79 FR 16805).

Document Number: 2014-18271
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-08-01
Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
Pursuant to the Privacy Act of 1974 (U.S.C. 552a(e)(4)), as amended, and Office of Management and Budget (OMB), Circular No. A-130, notice is hereby given that the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), Office of the Chief Information Officer (OCIO) has amended one of its system of records entitled the ``Privacy Act Request and Appeals Files'', previously known as ``HUD/Dept-52, Privacy Act Record Files''.

The changes under this notice are non- substantive and thus do not meet the threshold requirements for filing a report to OMB and Congress.
Mortgagee Review Board: Administrative Actions; Correction
Document Number: 2014-18268
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-08-01
Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
On July 16, 2014, HUD published a notice to advise the public of the administrative actions taken by HUD's Mortgagee Review Board (Board) against FHA-approved mortgagees during the period from October 1, 2012, to September 19, 2013, and the reasons for these actions. The notice is published as required by Section 202(c)(5) of the National Housing Act. As part of the notice, HUD included a list of lenders that had failed to meet the requirements for annual recertification and whose FHA approvals had been withdrawn. HUD has determined, however, that it erroneously listed two lenders as withdrawn when, in fact, each of the two lenders had appealed the Board's notice of withdrawal prior to the date upon which a withdrawal would take effect and resolved the matter. One of the lenders demonstrated that it had been in compliance prior to HUD's issuance of the Notice of Violation. The other lender resolved the annual recertification issues and paid a civil money penalty. HUD is publishing today's notice, therefore, to correct its July 16, 2014, notice.

Federal Housing Administration (FHA) Multifamily Mortgage Insurance; Capturing Excess Bond Proceeds
Document Number: 2014-17742
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-07-29
Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
This final rule amends HUD's regulations covering the contract rights and obligations of mortgagees participating in FHA multifamily mortgage insurance programs, to address reimbursement to FHA of excess bond proceeds. When a mortgagee finances mortgages through the issuance and sale of bonds or through bond anticipation notes, the mortgagee uses the funds from the payment of a mortgage insurance claim under HUD regulations addressing FHA multifamily insurance claim payment to pay off the remaining bond debts. At times, the amount paid by the FHA multifamily insurance claim is greater than the remaining bond debts. This final rule requires mortgagees that finance a project using a project-specific trust indenture agreement to include language in the trust indenture to require that excess bond funds that remain after FHA's multifamily insurance claim payment is used to satisfy the bonds are returned to FHA. HUD requires similar payments of excess bond funds on obligations of public housing agencies and, thus, the final rule provides consistency in the administration of HUD's bond-financed mortgages.

Public Housing Assessment System (PHAS) Capital Fund Final Scoring Notice: Reinstitution of Five Points for Occupancy Sub-Indicator; Correction
Document Number: 2014-17463
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-07-24
Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
On July 2, 2014, HUD published a notice that made final an earlier notice published on December 16, 2013, for public comment. The December 16, 2013, notice was entitled ``Public Housing Assessment System (PHAS) Capital Fund Interim Scoring Notice: Reinstitution of Five Points for Occupancy Sub-Indicator and Request for Comment.'' These notices pertain to the scoring of PHAs by HUD and have the effect of reinstating, temporarily, the automatic award of 5 points for the occupancy sub-indicator of the Capital Fund Program Indicator to all PHAs that passed a basic threshold scoring level for the Public Housing Assessment System (PHAS) Capital Fund Program Indicator. However, in the July 2, 2014, notice HUD inadvertently failed to revise the title of the notice by replacing ``interim'' with ``final'' and by removing the phrase ``and Request for Comment.'' Since the July 2, 2014, notice is final and does not request public comments, the title may be misleading to the public. HUD, therefore, is publishing today's notice to correct its July 2, 2014, notice.

Mortgage and Loan Insurance Programs Under the National Housing Act-Debenture Interest Rates
Document Number: 2014-17078
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-07-21
Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
This notice announces changes in the interest rates to be paid on debentures issued with respect to a loan or mortgage insured by the Federal Housing Administration under the provisions of the National Housing Act (the Act). The interest rate for debentures issued under section 221(g)(4) of the Act during the 6-month period beginning July 1, 2014, is 2\3/8\ percent. The interest rate for debentures issued under any other provision of the Act is the rate in effect on the date that the commitment to insure the loan or mortgage was issued, or the date that the loan or mortgage was endorsed (or initially endorsed if there are two or more endorsements) for insurance, whichever rate is higher. The interest rate for debentures issued under these other provisions with respect to a loan or mortgage committed or endorsed during the 6-month period beginning July 1, 2014, is 3\1/4\ percent. However, as a result of an amendment to section 224 of the Act, if an insurance claim relating to a mortgage insured under sections 203 or 234 of the Act and endorsed for insurance after January 23, 2004, is paid in cash, the debenture interest rate for purposes of calculating a claim shall be the monthly average yield, for the month in which the default on the mortgage occurred, on United States Treasury Securities adjusted to a constant maturity of 10 years.
Federal Housing Administration (FHA): Refinancing an Existing Cooperative Under Section 207 Pursuant to Section 223(f) of the National Housing Act
Document Number: 2014-17072
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-07-21
Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
This final rule amends HUD's regulations governing the eligibility for FHA insurance of mortgages used for the purchase or refinancing of existing multifamily housing projects. Although the statutory language authorizing such insurance does not distinguish between rental or cooperative multifamily projects, HUD's regulations limit FHA insurance to existing rental projects. Given the significant needs identified for multifamily cooperative financing, the Department determined that it was appropriate to reconsider the regulatory imposed limitation. Accordingly, this rule revises HUD's regulations to enable existing multifamily cooperative project owners to obtain FHA insurance for the refinancing of existing indebtedness.

Streamlining Requirements Applicable to Formation of Consortia by Public Housing Agencies
Document Number: 2014-16151
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-07-11
Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
This proposed rule would revise HUD's public housing agency (PHA) consortium regulations. These regulations provide the procedures by which PHAs may choose to administer their public housing and Section 8 programs. The changes proposed are intended to increase administrative efficiencies associated with forming a consortium and to help ensure maximum family choice in locating suitable housing. The proposed rule focuses mainly on establishing a new category of consortia for administration of the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program. This type of consortium would be comprised of multiple PHAs that would become a single PHA, with a single jurisdiction and a single set of reporting and audit requirements, for purposes of administering the Section 8 HCV program. This type of consortium would be in addition to the consortium structure established in current consortium regulations which the Department is referring to as multiple-ACC consortium in this proposed rule. The proposed rule would also revise the categories of Section 8 programs eligible to be administered under a consortium, and establish new requirements regarding the timeframes for the establishment and dissolution of a consortium. Further, HUD has taken the opportunity afforded by this proposed rule to make several technical, nonsubstantive changes to improve the clarity and organization of the consortia regulations.
