Strengthening Oversight of Over-Income Tenancy in Public Housing; Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking
Document Number: 2016-01921
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2016-02-03
Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
Through this notice, HUD announces that it is considering rulemaking to ensure that individuals and families residing in HUD public housing in fact continue to need housing assistance from HUD after admission. HUD's consideration of rulemaking is prompted by a report recently issued by HUD's Office of Inspector General (OIG). The report found, through comparison of annual household income reported in HUD's Public and Housing Information Center for approximately 1.1 million families to the applicable 2014 admission income limit, that as many as 25,226 families were subsequently over-income. Some of those families significantly exceeded the income limits. HUD seeks comment from PHAs and other interested parties and members of the public on the questions presented in this notice, including how HUD can structure policies to reduce the number of individuals and families in public housing whose incomes significantly exceed the income limit and have significantly exceeded the income limit for a sustained period of time after initial admission.
