Spotlight on 202 PRAC Preservation Rent Increase

Owners of converting Section 202 PRACs may be eligible to increase the post-conversion Section 8 contract rent by up to either $250 per unit per month or $100 per unit per month, depending on the level of rehab or construction, to be effective upon conversion, provided the work to be performed as part of the RAD Conversion Plan will enhance climate resilience, energy and water efficiency, or appropriate design for elderly residents to age-in-place.

202 PRAC Preservation Rent Increase

Beginning tomorrow, converting Section 202 PRAC project owners can formally submit a request for an increase to contract rents by completing the Preservation Rent Increase request in the project conversion application on the RAD Resource Desk.

For PRAC owners who are contemplating a RAD conversion, HUD has created a “RAD for PRAC: Preservation Rent Increase Eligibility Tool” to determine whether the project will meet the 60% or 30% of Housing Construction Cost (HCC) threshold based on anticipated rehab or construction costs. In addition, “RAD for PRAC: Preservation Rent Increase FAQs” have also been posted. To access these tools, navigate to the RAD Multifamily Document Library on the RAD Resource Desk at the following URL. The documents can be found under the Determining Rents section. https://www.radresource.net/mf_library.cfm

Owners interested in receiving a rent increase comfort letter from HUD can make an initial request for the rent increase up to six months prior to submission of the full Conversion Plan. HUD will make a preliminary determination of eligibility and of the projected per unit rent increase amount.  The Owner will make the final request when the complete Conversion Plan is submitted. Owners can make the initial request by completing the “Preservation Rent Increase” section of the conversion application on the RAD Resource Desk.

Thank you,
The RAD Team
