The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) released its fiscal year (FY) 2013 fair market rents (FMRs) . The FY 2013 FMRs took effect on Oct. 1. HUD uses FMRs to determine payment standard amounts for the Housing Choice Voucher program, to determine initial renewal rents for some expiring project-based Section 8 contracts and to determine initial rents for housing assistance payments (HAP) contracts in the Moderate Rehabilitation Single Room Occupancy (SRO) program.

Learn more about the FMRs at HUD 101: Understanding Multifamily Programs, Nov. 28, in Las Vegas, Nev. This Tax Credit Housing Finance Conference pre-conference workshop will teach you the basics of HUD’s multifamily programs. The FY 2013 FMRs will also be discussed at the Property Compliance Workshop on Nov. 29-30, in Las Vegas, Nev.
