Public Housing Assessment System (PHAS) Capital Fund Interim Scoring Notice: Reinstitution of Five Points for Occupancy Sub-Indicator and Request for Comment
Document Number: 2014-15586
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-07-02
Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
This notice makes final a prior notice reinstating, temporarily, the award of 5 points for the occupancy sub-indicator of the Capital Fund Program Indicator to all PHAs for the PHAS Capital Fund Program Indicator. This award of points is provided as regulatory relief from a non-statutory element of PHAS and intended to help lessen the impact of decreases in funding in recent appropriations acts. Adding automatic points for the occupancy sub-indicator will allow PHAs to focus on the statutory criteria for assessing performance under the Capital Fund Indicator, which is timely obligation of the Capital Funds and will in no way limit HUD's oversight and monitoring of PHAs. This notice, in order to ensure there is no confusion on this point, is explicit about the fact that the remainder of the Capital Fund Scoring Notice of February 23, 2011 remains in effect and unchanged by this notice, and if the PHA receives 0 points for the timeliness of obligation subindicator, it is not eligible for points for the occupancy subindicator.

The Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008 (HERA): Changes to the Section 8 Tenant-Based Voucher and Section 8 Project-Based Voucher Programs
Document Number: 2014-14632
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-06-25
Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
HERA, enacted into law on July 30, 2008, made comprehensive and significant reforms to several HUD programs, including HUD's Public Housing, Section 8 Tenant-Based Voucher, and Project-Based Voucher programs. On November 24, 2008, HUD published a notice that provided information about the applicability of certain HERA provisions to these programs. The notice identified: those statutory provisions that are self-executing and required no action on the part of HUD for the program changes made by HERA to be implemented; and those statutory provisions that require new regulations or regulatory changes by HUD for the HERA provisions to be implemented. The notice also offered the opportunity for public comment on the guidance provided. HUD followed the November 2008 notice with a May 15, 2012, rule that proposed to establish, in regulation, the reforms made by HERA solely to the Section 8 Tenant-Based Voucher and Project-Based Voucher programs as discussed in the November 2008 notice, to make other related changes to the regulations, and to further solicit public comment. This final rule conforms the regulations of the Section 8 Tenant-Based Voucher and Project-Based Voucher programs to the statutory program changes made by HERA, makes other related changes to these regulations as discussed in the May 2012 proposed rule, and makes further changes to the two voucher program regulations as a result of issues raised by public comment or as a result of further consideration by HUD of issues pertaining to these programs.

Amendments To Reflect Change of Office Name From Office of Healthy Homes and Lead Hazard Control to Office of Lead Hazard Control and Healthy Homes
Document Number: 2014-14368
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-06-19
Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
HUD's civil money penalty regulations currently provide that the Director of HUD's Office of Healthy Homes and Lead Hazard Control, or the Director's designee, may initiate a civil money penalty action against any person who knowingly violates the Residential Lead-Based Paint Hazard Reduction Act of 1992. HUD's Lead-Based Paint Poisoning Prevention regulation identifies the Office of Healthy Homes and Lead Hazard Control as the approval authority, after consultation with the Environmental Protection Agency, for lead-safe work practices courses that may qualify supervisors and workers to perform interim controls of lead-based paint hazards. Because HUD has changed the name of the Office of Healthy Homes and Lead Hazard Control to the Office of Lead Hazard Control and Healthy Homes, this final rule conforms HUD regulations to reference this new name. This final rule also provides a savings provision that preserves under the Office of Lead Hazard Control and Healthy Homes all actions taken under the Office of Healthy Homes and Lead Hazard Control.
Section 8 Housing Choice Vouchers: Revised Implementation of the HUD-VA Supportive Housing Program Technical Correction
Document Number: 2014-14167
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-06-18
Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
On March 23, 2012, HUD published a notice, effective as of March 23, 2012, that established the policies and procedures for the administration of tenant-based Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) rental assistance under the HUD-Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (HUD-VASH) program. The March 23, 2012, notice was an update of a HUD- VASH program notice first published by HUD on May 6, 2008. It was recently brought to HUD's intention that one of the HUD regulations that requires waiver in order to allow HUD-VASH families to live on the grounds of a VA facility in units developed to house homeless veterans was not referenced in either the May 6, 2008, notice or the March 23, 2012, notice. Although HUD has waived the requirement since the issuance of the May 6, 2008, notice, the regulatory requirement was inadvertently omitted from the notice. This notice corrects that omission.

Document Number: 2014-12731
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-06-03

This final rule amends the Federal Manufactured Home Construction and Safety Standards by incorporating the correct reference standard for anti-scald devices designed for bathtubs and whirlpool tubs without showers, ASSE 1070-2004, Performance Requirements for Water Temperature Limiting Devices.

In a final rule published on December 9, 2013, HUD incorporated ASSE 1016- 2005, an anti-scalding device designed for showers and tub-shower combinations. HUD failed to incorporate, however, ASSE 1070-2004, which is designed for fixtures such as bathtubs and whirlpool tubs that do not have showers. To correct this and ensure the safety of occupants of manufactured homes with bathtubs and whirlpool tubs without showers, this final rule incorporates ASSE 1070-2004.

Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
HUD is issuing this document to permit recipients of Federal financial assistance from HUD (HUD recipients) to use an alternative accessibility standard for purposes of complying with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (Section 504) and HUD's implementing regulation at 24 CFR part 8 (Section 504 regulation) until HUD formally revises its Section 504 regulation to adopt an updated accessibility standard. In March 2011, the Department of Justice (DOJ), pursuant to its coordination authority under Section 504, advised Federal agencies that they may permit covered entities to use the 2010 ADA Standards for Accessible Design (2010 Standards) as an acceptable alternative to the Uniform Federal Accessibility Standards (UFAS) until such time as they update their agency's regulation implementing the Federally assisted provisions of Section 504. Consistent with DOJ's advice, this document provides HUD recipients the option of using the 2010 Standards under title II of the ADA, except for certain specific provisions identified in this document, as an alternative accessibility standard to UFAS for purposes of complying with Section 504 and HUD's Section 504 regulation for new construction and alterations commenced on or after May 23, 2014.

Federal Housing Administration (FHA): Adjustable Rate Mortgage Notification Requirements and Look-Back Period for FHA-Insured Single Family Mortgages
Document Number: 2014-10572
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-05-08
Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
This rule proposes two revisions to FHA's regulations governing its single family adjustable rate mortgage (ARM) program to align FHA interest rate adjustment and notification regulations with the requirements for notifying mortgagors of ARM adjustments, as required by the regulations implementing the Truth in Lending Act (TILA), as recently revised by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). The first proposed amendment of this rule would require that an interest rate adjustment resulting in a corresponding change to the mortgagor's monthly payment for an ARM be based on the most recent index value available 45 days before the date of the rate adjustment. The date that the newly adjusted interest rate goes into effect is often referred to as the ``interest change date.'' The number of days prior to the interest change date on which the index value is selected is called the ``look-back period.'' FHA's current regulations provide for a 30-day look-back period. The second proposed amendment would require that the mortgagee of an FHA-insured ARM comply with the disclosure and notification requirements of the 2013 TILA Servicing Rule, including at least a 60-day but no more than 120-day advance notice of an adjustment to a mortgagor's monthly payment. FHA's current regulations provide for notification at least 25 days in advance of an adjustment to a mortgagor's monthly payment.
