Public Housing Operating Fund Payments for March, April, and May Prorated at 88.7%

Earlier today, HUD sent an email to PHA Executive Directors informing them that HUD will make subsidy obligations available in the Line of Credit Control System (LOCCS) for the Public Housing Operating Fund within the next six business days. The payments for the months of March, April, and May will be obligated at a 88.7 percent proration. Although PHAs are being funded for three months, they are required to only draw down funds one month at a time, unless a multiple month withdrawal is approved by a HUD field office.

The funds being obligated are based on an estimate of PHA eligibility. The department believes that it should know actual eligibility, based on PHA submissions, by June at the earliest. As certain developments may be under- or over-funded based on current estimates, in instances where the estimated funding varies from the actual eligibility, the PHA should contact its field office representative. The PHA should also refrain from drawing down overfunded amounts and–if underfunded–should utilize its reserves until it receives its actual eligible funding.

If a development has been fully converted to RAD in 2018, but has still been awarded 2019 Operating Funds, the PHA should advise its field office immediately and not draw down 2019 funds.
