Title: Streamlining Requirements Applicable to Formation of Consortia of Public Housing Agencies (FR–5578) 

On July 11, 2014, HUD published the Streamlining Requirements Applicable to Formation of Consortia by Public Housing Agencies” proposed rule. The changes proposed by this rule are intended to increase administrative efficiencies associated with forming a consortium and to help ensure maximum family choice in locating suitable housing. In this regard, the proposed rule focused on establishing a new category of cross-jurisdictional consortia for administration of the section 8 Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program. The current regulations do not allow for such cross-jurisdictional consortia. Since publishing the July 11, 2014, proposed rule, HUD has decided to build upon the rule by revising the categories of programs eligible to be administered under a cross-jurisdictional consortium.   Although the July 11, 2014, proposed rule proposed to establish a single-ACC consortium as a new category of consortium, that rule did not extend single-ACC consortia beyond the section 8 HCV program. As a result, HUD is drafting a second proposed rule that further revises the consortium regulations to allow the formation of a single-ACC consortium for administration of either the Section 8 HCV program (referred to as HCV single-ACC consortia”) or the public housing program (referred to as public housing single-ACC consortia”). This second proposed rule would revise the July 11, 2014, proposed rule with respect to single-ACC consortia in 24 CFR part 943. HUD intends to issue a single final rule that takes into consideration all public comments received on both the July 11, 2014, proposed rule and on the second proposed rule.
