PROPOSED CHANGES TO HHA PUBLIC HOUSING FLAT RENTS AND CEILING RENTS
July 15, 2016
On January 17, 2014, the President signed the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Appropriations Act, 2014. Section 210 of that act amended the United States Housing Act of 1937 to create new rules for flat rents for public housing residents.
The 2014 Appropriations Act requires PHAs to establish flat rents at no less than 80 percent of the fair market rent (FMR) to be updated annually. If the current flat rents are below the threshold, the PHA is required to revise its flat rent schedule to at least 80 percent of FMR.
HUD has issued new 2016 FMRs for Madison County, Alabama.
Below are the proposed flat rent schedule and ceiling rent schedule which has been revised in light of the new 2016 FMRs.
