The Housing Opportunity Through Modernization Act (HOTMA) was signed into law on July 29, 2016, amending many aspects of Multifamily Housing programs (as well as programs administered through the Offices of Public and Indian Housing and Community Planning and Development). HOTMA was intended to streamline processes and reduce burdens on housing providers.
Now HUD has issues changes with the implementation of the final rule that is to be effective on January 1, 2024. The changes under HOTMA touch upon multiple areas, including standards for income determination, resident self-certification, and interim re-examinations.The new rule helps raise the standard deduction for everyone but then also raises the threshold above which public housing and Section 8 residents can deduct additional medical expenses. It reduces the amount of paperwork and figuring out the medical deductions for those Households.

The Final Rule implementing Sections 102, 103, and 104 of the Housing Opportunity Through Modernization Act of 2016 (HOTMA) is a major change in a popular program whose mission is to simplify paperwork and make the program more functional. Since it is scheduled to go into effect at the first of the year it behoves us to understand the final rule and its ramifications of HOTMA.
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.
