NAHMAnalysis 2016-1209: SAFMR Final Rule
Today we published a new NAHMAnalysis about HUD's final rule regarding Small Area Fair Market Rents (SAFMRs) in the Housing Choice Voucher Program. The final SAFMR rule is available at the NAHMA website here.
HUD's noted purpose for this regulation is to help PHAs deconcentrate HCVs by replacing the 50th percentile FMR with SAFMRs based on zip codes. During the proposed rule, NAHMA joined with our industry colleagues to oppose the implementation of SAFMRs.
