HUD Publishes Invitation for Comment on Section 8 Rent Adjustments

Tuesday, July 9, 2002 - 7:00AM

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) today published an invitation for public comment regarding the procedures for appealing Section 8 rent adjustments. Under Title II of the National Housing Act, HUD is charged with determining the method of rent adjustments and facilitating them. Because rent adjustments are considered benefits to project owners, HUD also provides the means for owners to appeal the decisions concerning these adjustments, which are made by the Department of Contract Administrator. According to HUD, this appeal process, and the information collected as a result, play an important role in preventing costly litigation and ensuring the accuracy of the overall rent adjustment process. Comments are due by September 9.
