USES AND USE RESTRICTIONS:

HUD makes payments to owners of approved HUD-insured and non-insured multifamily rental housing projects to supplement the partial rental payments of eligible tenants. Rental projects were required to be part of an approved workable program for community improvement or be approved by local government officials. Assistance covers the difference between the tenant's payment and the basic market rental, but may not exceed 70 percent of the market rental. The tenant's payment is between 25 and 30 percent of monthly adjusted income or 30 percent of market rental, whichever is greater. This program is inactive. No new projects are being approved; however, tenants may apply for admission to existing projects.

ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS:

Applicant Eligibility:   Eligible sponsors included nonprofit, cooperative, builder-seller, investor-sponsor, and limited-distribution mortgagors.

Beneficiary Eligibility:   Families must be within the income limits prescribed for admission to Section 8 housing in order to qualify for benefits under this program. Families may continue in occupancy if 30 percent of monthly income exceeds the market rent.

ASSISTANCE CONSIDERATIONS:

Formula and Matching Requirements:   HUD makes monthly payments to project owners to make up the difference between the partial rentals paid by assisted tenants and the market rental. Assisted tenants must pay between 25 and 30 percent of their adjusted monthly income (after certain deductions) or 30 percent of the market rent, which-ever is greater. This program has maintenance of effort (MOE) requirements, see funding agency for further details. Statistical factors used for fund allocation do not apply for this program. The statistical factor used for eligibility is 80 percent of the median family income by HUD field office region, the source calculated by HUD from P-25, Census; 1990 Census; County Business Patterns; P-60, Census; and the Annual Housing Survey.

Length and Time Phasing of Assistance:   The rent supplement contract is limited to the term of the mortgage or 40 years from the date of the first payment made under the contract, whichever is less. Individual family's assistance ceases when 30 percent of income is equal to or exceeds the market rent.

POST ASSISTANCE REQUIREMENTS:

Reports:   Any change of the mortgagor during the period of mortgage insurance must be approved by HUD. Defaults in meeting the mortgage terms must be reported. All mortgagors of HUD-insured projects are required to submit an annual financial statement to HUD.
