On June 16, 2016, HUD published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking titled “Establishing a More Effective Fair Market Rent (FMR) System; Using Small Area Fair Market Rents (SAFMRs) in Housing Choice Voucher Program Instead of the Current 50th Percentile FMRs (FR-5855-P-02)” which proposes repealing the 50th Percentile FMR regulation as a tool to help Public Housing Authorities (PHAs) deconcentrate voucher tenants and replacing it with a regulation based on SAFMRs. More information, including a link to the proposed rule, can be found here.

Please join representatives from HUD’s Office of Policy Development & Research and Office of Public and Indian Housing for briefing about the proposed rule. The briefing will be webcast on Thursday, June 30, 2016, from 11am-12:30pm ET. The webcast link will be available here on the day of the event.

HUD staff will walk through the proposed rule and answer questions. Please note that this forum is not a venue to submit official comments on the proposed rule. Only comments submitted through regulations.gov (or by mail) will receive consideration as public comments.

If you have any questions, please contact Alejandro Aviles in HUD’s Office Public Engagement at 202-402-4735 or Alejandro.Aviles@hud.gov.
