Quality Control for Rental Assistance Subsidies Determination: Final Report for FY 2006
AbstractThe Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Quality Control for Rental Assistance Subsidy Determinations studies provide national estimates of the extent, severity, costs, and sources of rent errors in tenant subsidies for the PHA-administered Public Housing, Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher, and Moderate Rehabilitation programs; and the owner-administered Section 8, and Section 202 and Section 811 programs with Project Rental Assistance Contracts (PRAC) or Project Assistance Contracts (PAC). These programs account for nearly all of HUD's current housing assistance outlays administered by the Offices of Housing and Public and Indian Housing, as well as the large majority of units assisted by HUD. This study was designed to measure the extent of administrative error by housing providers. The errors we evaluated in this study affect the rent contributions tenants should have been charged. The findings presented in this report are a result of data collected from February through July 2007 for actions taken by Public Housing Authority (PHA) and project staff during FY 2006 (October 2005 through September 2006). These findings show that the percent of errors, the average dollars in error and the gross dollar error rate in the Public Housing, Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher, Moderate Rehabilitation, owner-administered Section 8, and Section 202 and Section 811 programs with PRAC or PAC tenant subsidies continues to remain stable when compared with results from previous studies.
