On December 20, HUD published in the Federal Register an extension of the public comment period on the methodology HUD proposes to use to implement a new income limit in public housing, as mandated by the Housing Opportunity Through Modernization Act of 2016 (HOTMA). Comments are now due January 29, 2017. NAHRO and other industry organizations asked HUD for an extension of the comment period in light of the large amount of notices and guidance HUD has recently released. NAHRO’s letter can be found here (members only). More information on HUD’s proposed methodology using very-low income thresholds to determine income limits can be found here.
