Today, NAHMA published a new NAHMAnalysis titled “Making Affordable Housing Work Act of 2018”: HUD’s proposed Rent Reforms and Work Requirements.

On April 25, 2018, HUD Secretary Dr. Ben Carson released a legislative package to comprehensively reform rent structures in HUD’s rental assistance programs. The proposal, which requires congressional approval, is titled the “Making Affordable Housing Work Act of 2018” and would affect all rental assistance programs, including Public Housing (PH), Housing Choice Vouchers (HCVs), and Project-Based Rental Assistance (PBRA) programs. This NAHMAnalysis gives an in-depth look at the bill provisions.
