Guidance on HOTMA Section 103 Released

On March 13, HUD issued Notice PIH-2023-03 (HA) titled “Supplemental Guidance for Implementation of Section 103; Limitation on Public Housing Tenancy for Over-Income Families under the Housing Opportunity Through Modernization Act of 2016 (HOTMA).” The Notice provides guidance to PHAs on the new limitations for continued occupancy of over-income families living in public housing. The guidance is linked to the HOTMA Sections 102, 103, and 104 final rule that was released in February. The notice provides guidance on setting rents for over-income families allowed to remain in public housing units by PHA policy, restates instructions on how a PHA must calculate the over-income limit, addresses effective dates in the final rule, and describes the requirement to submit annual reports on over-income families.
