  • (3) Funds for vouchers initially awarded in CY 2005, to provide funding to 12/31/2006
  • (4) Baseline cost adjustments for transfers in or out of PHA inventory during CY 2005
  • (5) Funds for the additional costs of enhanced vouchers, based on PIC data, above funding otherwise provided in the baseline

  • All the above adjustments were made to the 2005 baseline, and then the 2006 AAF was applied to establish the 2006 baseline.
  • Total baseline amounts for all PHAs were totaled and compared to the available appropriation to determine the pro-ration factor
  • Pro-ration factor was applied to each PHA’s CY 2006 baseline to determine the projected funding amount.

renewal funding calculations example
Renewal Funding Calculations - Example
  • Partial Year Funding for 2004 New Vouchers:
  • PHA received new increment with term of 8/1/2004 to 7/31/2005, for 93 units, due to 2004 approved PH demolition under Section 18.
  • When 2005 base was calculated, renewal funds were provided for the term of 8/1/2005 to 12/31/2005; that amount carried forward in the 2005 base to 2006.
  • Calculations required to increase base for renewing the months of the initial term that were in CY 2005: 1/1/2005 to 7/31/2005 (these are not already in 2005 base)

U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development

renewal funding calculations example12
Renewal Funding Calculations - Example
  • Calculations: 2005 Funded PUC x
  • total units x months to fund =
  • $384.00 x 93 units x 7 months = $254,984
  • $254,984 is added to the base

U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development

renewal funding calculations example13
Renewal Funding Calculations - Example
  • Partial Year Funding for 2005 New Vouchers:
  • PHA received new increment with term of 4/1/05
  • to 3/31/06, for 64 units under Multifamily Tenant
  • Protection
  • PHA is funded for these units through 3/31/06
  • Calculations are required to increase the base to
  • provide renewal funding for the months in CY
  • 2006 beyond 3/31/06

U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development

renewal funding calculations example14
Renewal Funding Calculations - Example
  • Calculations: 2005 Funded PUC x total units x
  • months to fund =
  • $384.00 x 64 units x 9 months = $221,184
  • $228,073 is added to the base
  • Note: Public Housing Relocation and Replacement
  • Vouchers are generally funded to December 31
  • of the initial year

U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development

renewal funding calculations example15
Renewal Funding Calculations - Example
  • Funding for 2005 Transfers:
  • PHA received 10 units via transfer from a divesting
  • PHA on 7/1/2005
  • Calculations are required to increase the base to
  • provide renewal funding for 12 months in 2006
  • Calculations: 2005 Funded PUC of Divesting HA x
  • total units x 12 months =
  • $396.89 x 10 units x 12 months = $47,627
  • $47,627 is added to the base of the receiving PHA
  • and deducted from the base of the divesting PHA

U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development

renewal funding calculations example16
Renewal Funding Calculations - Example
  • Funding for Enhanced Vouchers (EV):
  • PHA received Tenant Protection vouchers and has
  • reported 15 EVs in the current PIC database
  • Calculations are required to increase the base to
  • provide sufficient renewal funding for the 15
  • reported Enhanced Vouchers
  • Calculations: Average reported cost in PIC for
  • Enhanced Vouchers
  • Less: PHA’s 2005 Funded PUC
  • Times: Enhanced Vouchers x 12 months in CY 2006

U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development

renewal funding calculations example17
Renewal Funding Calculations - Example
  • Funding for Enhanced Vouchers:
  • PHAs average reported cost in PIC for 15 Enhanced Vouchers: $442.73
  • PHA’s CY 2005 Funded PUC: $429.08
  • Difference $ 13.65
  •   $13.65 x 15 Enhanced Vouchers x
  • 12 months = $2,457
  •  $2,457 is added to the base

U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development

renewal funding calculations example18
Renewal Funding Calculations - Example
  • Funding for Enhanced Vouchers:
  • If PHA has reported more Enhanced Vouchers in PIC than Tenant Protection Vouchers it has received, calculations are limited to the total TP Vouchers
  •   If PHA base was increased in CY 2005 for Enhanced Voucher cost, any additional increase in CY 2006 is limited to the total increase in the EV costs

U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development

renewal funding calculations example19
Renewal Funding Calculations - Example
  • Funding for 1st Time Renewal – HOPE VI Vouchers:
  • PHA received an award of Hope VI Vouchers, for the
  • term of 1/1/2005 to 12/31/2005, for 3 vouchers.
  • Calculations are required to increase the base for the additional costs associated with the first time renewal of these vouchers in CY 2006
  • Calculations: Reported average cost in PIC for HOPE VI vouchers
  • Less: PHA’s Funded CY 2005 PUC
  • Times: HOPE VI vouchers in PIC x renewal months in CY 2006

U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development

renewal funding calculations example20
Renewal Funding Calculations - Example
  • Funding for 1st Time Renewal – HOPE VI Vouchers:
  • PHAs average reported cost in PIC for 3 HOPE VI
  • Vouchers: $703.17
  • PHA’s CY 2005 Funded PUC: $520.67
  • Difference $182.50
  • $13.65 x 3 Hope VI Vouchers x 12 months = $6,570
  • $6,570 is added to the base

set aside for baseline adjustments48
Set-Aside for Baseline Adjustments
  • Proviso 2 Example (Unforeseen Circumstances)
  • A PHA had set its Payment Standards at 90% of FMR in CY 2005 and maintained full lease-up at that level. Due to a hurricane, rents increased due to demand for housing in its jurisdiction, significantly and quickly, causing the PHA to raise its Payment Standards to 110 % of FMR in order to maintain viability for its program and participants.
  •   The PHA should submit documentation of the circumstances and calculations of the impact on its CY 2006 costs.

U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development

Set-Aside for Baseline Adjustments
  • Proviso 2 Example (Portability)
  • For requests for increases due to portability, HUD will compare a PHA’s portability costs, as reported in PIC, to the PHA’s baseline per unit funding amount for CY 2006 to determine if the PHA is incurring significant cost increases due to portability
  • PHA should submit no documentation

U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development

set aside for baseline adjustments50
Set-Aside for Baseline Adjustments
  • PHA CY 2006 Renewal Funding PUC: $550
  • Total portable households in PHA’s current

moving to work program
Moving to Work Program
  • PHAs in the MTW program received a separate letter and attachment to set out the calculation of projected CY 2006 renewal funding, for both MTW units and regular vouchers
  •   In addition to reviewing increments and FMR areas, MTW PHAs are asked to review the program designation of their units and advise HUD of any request to move eligible units from the regular voucher program to the MTW program as they are renewed.
  • Regular voucher and MTW funding will be pro-rated in 2006 according to the same factor that is calculated for all PHAs
