Today, HUD released for prepublication an interim final rule that implements triennial recertifications for fixed-income residents of Public Housing (PH), the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program, and various multifamily housing programs. Language permitting triennial recertifications was a hard-earned and significant win for PHAs across that country that are currently facing historically low levels of federal funding. This interim final rule resulted from language that permitted triennial recertifications for families with 90 percent or more of their income coming from fixed sources included in the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act, signed into law by President Obama on December 4, 2015.

The interim final rules goes into effect 90 days after publication in the Federal Register and interested parties have 30 days after publication to provide comments. Comments may be submitted online at NAHRO anticipates the interim final rule will be published tomorrow and will inform members of the actual effective date once it is published through the NAHRO Blog and the NAHRO Monitor.
