Mastering the Rent Increase Process for HUD-Funded Properties

Whether your property is a Section 8, Rent Supplement, 236, 202, 202/8, 202 PAC, 202/811 PRAC, 231, 221(d)3 or 221(d)3 BMIR, having an income stream that keeps pace with operating costs is key to ensuring the present and future viability of your property and its ability to provide the facilities and services your residents need.  This course takes an in-depth look at the various rent increase methods available to housing providers, which ones apply to which type of property, when and how the Owner can choose their method, what to submit with your request, and how to justify line-item increases over 5%.  The course will be based on the current Section 8 Renewal Guide, Chapter 7 of the 4350.1 – – Processing Budget-Based Rent Increases, and proposed guidance from the Draft Revised 4350.1 Chapter 2.06 – Budget-Based Rent Adjustments
