HUD sent out an email notifying PHAs that Guidance on Final 2016 Operating Subsidy Eligibility and Request for HUD Modifications/Corrections on HUD’s Operating Subsidy webpage. The guidance relates to the Public Housing Operating Fund Final Eligibility Report published on September 28. According to the email, “[t]he reported eligibility is based on HUD-52723s received and processed to date, and includes all new and existing projects to be funded for the calendar year using 2016 Appropriations. The eligibility in this report will be used to make final obligations for 2016 including any adjustments to the 12 months cumulative funding for projects.”
PHAs are advised to review the Final Eligibility Report worksheet to confirm that the eligibility shown is accurate. If PHAs identify issues with the eligibility, they should email their local Field Office immediately, but no later than October 5, 2016.
Requests for changes must be accompanied by the appropriate supporting documentation: proof that the PHA complied with the August 15, 2016 deadline and/or evidence that changes are needed due to HUD errors.
