HUD has changed the link to the Housing Choice Voucher Forecasting Tool and the Payment Standard tool. To use it, PHAs should make sure that they are logged into the Web Access Security System (WASS), then go to the webpage. If you have been unable to access the tool, it may be because you are trying to access it with the old link.
The forecasting tool now has 2017 set as the first year and has a likely-to-be-accurate estimate of the amount to be sent out to PHAs.
The HCV tools page can be accessed here.
