HUD issued a notice on February 28, 2018 (PIH Notice 2018-3) providing guidance to housing authorities on the use of Operating Funds for Capital Fund purposes. Beginning in calendar year 2018, housing authorities have the option to use up to 20 percent of its Operating Subsidy for Capital Fund Activities. Agencies that intend to use this flexibility are required to submit a statement regarding this as a financial resource in their Annual Plan.
RHA intends to apply this funding flexibility to the Operating Subsidy and Capital Fund appropriated to the agency in 2018. Therefore an amendment to include such a statement in the 2018-2019 Agency Plan will be submitted to HUD for their approval
A public comment period for this amendment to the Agency Plan will be from: August 13, 2018 until September 26, 2018.
Written comments must be submitted by 5:00pm September 26, 2018 to:
