On January 17, HUD released it’s 2018 Public Housing Management Fee Table. PHAs may use the amounts published in the table to establish “reasonable” fees for each of their public housing projects. Some PHAs may see a decrease from the 2017 schedule. Fees in the fee table have already been adjusted for occupancy. Nationally, the 80th percentile management fee is $60.46 per unit month (PUM).
