RC Update!

New RAD Notice & Supplemental Guidance

HUD published yesterday, via a new notice and supplemental guidance, important new information for implementing changes to RAD’s new authority in the FY18 Appropriations Act, along with details on 5 new innovative tools to simplify RAD conversions while extending its reach to additional public housing developments. Significant flexibilities were also outlined for the remaining Rent Supp, RAP and Mod Rehab properties yet to convert to long-term Section 8 contracts under RAD. (Information on converting Section 202 PRAC properties under RAD will be detailed in a forthcoming notice expected in the Fall).

Taken together, these resources continue to build RAD’s capabilities and flexibilities in truly preserving and recapitalizing the nation’s public and affordable housing stock. 

The July 2 RADblast! offers a good summary of these changes, along with direct links to the new notice and guidance, a revised FY16 RAD Rent table for the balance of FY18 and a version of the Revision 3 RAD Notice reflecting these changes. To access all this information, click here.

Most importantly, note that HUD will host a live webinar on the provisions of both notices on Monday, July 9, at 2P EST. You can register here to participate.
