The overall goal of the rule is to streamline regulatory requirements within the programs, reduce administrative burdens on public housing agencies and multifamily owners, and, when possible, align requirements across programs. Although some of the proposals would be new, others are current policy at HUD and are meant to simply formalize them.
HUD is requesting comment on these and other proposals in its related notice. NMHC/NAA will be discussing the proposed rule with members in the coming weeks, along with industry colleagues, to determine how we will weigh-in. We are requesting that members who intend to submit comments contact NMHC Director of Government Affairs Kimble Ratliff at firstname.lastname@example.org.
