HUD/OH RIN: 2502-AJ22 Publication ID: Fall 2017 
Title: Streamlining Management and Occupancy Reviews for Section 8 Housing Assistance Programs (FR-5654) 

This rule amends existing project-based section 8 regulations related to Management and Occupancy Reviews (MORs) for the following programs: the section 8 Housing Assistance Payments (HAP) Programs for New Construction, Substantial Rehabilitation, and State Housing Agencies; New Construction financed under Section 515 of the Housing Act of 1949; the Loan Management Set-Aside Program, the HAP Program for the Disposition of HUD-Owned Projects; and the section 202/8 Program. Under this rule, MORs would be conducted in accordance with a schedule published in the Federal Register and subject to public comment. HUD is making this change in order to reduce the frequency of unnecessary MORs, thereby minimizing interruptions in property operations created by onsite reviews, preserving staff time, and reducing costs. HUD is not pursuing changes to existing section 162 regulations related to Vacancy Payments in this final rule.
