Owners and Operators,

This guidance provides a summary of existing policy regarding the fees that owners of HUD-subsidized multifamily properties are permitted and not permitted to charge tenants. None of the guidance set forth in the chart is new or reflects a change in federal law, regulation, or policy. In addition to outlining the Office of Multifamily Housing Programs’ existing policy regarding different types of fees and charges for its subsidized programs, the chart includes citations to applicable regulations and HUD-issued guidance that will provide owners and tenants with more detailed information. This guidance does not address applicable state or local laws, which may permit or prohibit non-rent fees.

The Office of Multifamily Housing Programs is seeking feedback from stakeholders regarding its existing policy on non-rent fees for HUD-subsidized multifamily housing programs. We would appreciate comments on the existing guidance related to each type of fee or charge contained in the chart. In addition, we are interested in input from owners and tenants on whether there are fees that are not addressed in our existing guidance.

Please provide your comments on the feedback worksheet and email the worksheet to . The deadline for responses is March 29, 2024.
