On January 1, 2024, HUD will implement the most comprehensive changes to the way HUD properties determine eligibility and calculate income and rent since 1981 when Congress raised the rent cap from 25% to 30% of Adjusted Income.  The changes are expected to have a ripple effect on other affordable housing programs including Rural Development and the Low Income Housing Tax Credit and HOME programs.  Find out the most significant changes, what guidance HUD has provided to date, and when you will need to start following the new rules.
