Streamlining HUD Recertifications

In May of 2020, HUD published a Final Rule finalizing the regulatory language to implement the FAST Act which allows for streamlined recertifications. This final rule discusses how these new rules affect:

  • Asset Verification
  • Utility Allowance Reimbursements
  • Triennial Income Verifications


Reducing the Administrative Burden for Owners

This Final Rule reduces the burden of verifying household assets when determining a household’s income upon recertification and also reduces the burden of verifying fixed income sources when determining a household’s income upon recertification. The rule reduces this burden by permitting owners/agents to verify a household’s fixed income (such as social security)every three years as opposed to every single year. For households whose fixed income represents 90% or more of the household’s total gross income, the owner/agent is not required to verify non-fixed income sources in years 2 and 3 after a full third-party income certification has been conducted. Additionally, this new rule allows for utility reimbursements to be paid quarterly in certain circumstances.

Learn to Take Advantage of This New Benefit

This rule makes the process of recertifying households in HUD housing much easier and less time-consuming. So the question is: why haven’t more owners implemented this rule? Some owners and agents have avoided using this new option out of fear the process is too difficult to track. Others are afraid of doing it wrong and getting in trouble.
