The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Quality Control for Rental Assistance Subsidy Determinations (HUDQC) studies provide national estimates of the extent, severity, costs, and sources of rent errors in tenant subsidies for the Public and Indian Housing (PIH)-administered Public Housing, PHA-administered Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher and Moderate Rehabilitation programs; and the Office of Housing-administered Section 8, Section 202 and Section 811 Project Rental Assistance Contracts (PRAC) and Section 202/162 Project Assistance Contracts (PAC) programs. These programs account for nearly all of HUD’s current housing assistance outlays administered by the Offices of Housing and Public and Indian Housing, as well as the large majority of units assisted by HUD. This study was designed to measure the extent of administrator income and rent determination error by housing providers. This study does not involve an audit of individual Public Housing Authorities (PHAs) or projects, nor does it monitor the implementation of housing programs. Its focus is on identifying households where an error was made when calculating the amount of the household’s rent and providing nationally representative findings related to those errors.
