HUD Publishes FY 2019 Inflation Factors for Housing Agency Renewal Funding

Tuesday, April 16, 2019 - 9:45am

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development will publish in tomorrow’s Federal Register a notice establishing renewal funding inflation factors (RFIFs) to adjust fiscal year (FY) 2019 renewal funding for the Housing Choice Voucher program of each public housing agency (PHA). RFIFs are used to adjust the Housing Choice Voucher fund allocations to PHAs for local changes in rents, utility costs and tenant incomes. For the FY 2019 RFIFs, the expected percentage change in national per-unit cost for the Housing Choice Voucher program is 4 percent and will be apportioned to each PHA based on the change in fair market rents for their operating area.
