Title: Section 8 Project-Based Contracts: Standardizing Program Regulation and Renewal Contracts (FR-6320) 

After seeking comment from owners, tenants, and other program stakeholders, the Office of Multifamily Housing (MFH) will propose a set of uniform policies to govern MFH’s Section 8 project-based rental assistance programs that provide Housing Assistance Payments (HAP). Currently, MFH administers eight project-based Section 8 programs with HAP contracts, each governed by its own regulation or notice and subject to differing requirements. To reduce regulatory complexities, MFH proposes a standard program regulation and a standard contract that would be used to renew HAP contracts subject to section 524 of the Multifamily Assisted Housing Reform and Affordability Act of 1997 (MAHRA). Section 524 of MAHRA affords the Secretary broad leeway to establish the terms and conditions under which such contracts are renewed.
