A HUD official emailed us to let us know that the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Forecasting tool has again been updated. This time, the tool includes an automatic trending of per unit costs (PUC) in years 1 and 2. Users may still adjust this trend depending on the on-the-ground circumstances. This change was made because “in 2017 as PUCs have gone up more around the nation, may PHAs have not accounted for the trend in future months, leading to shortfalls.”
The HCV forecasting tool can be accessed here.
